    I like The Last Resort. So I'm going with My My and vote for Pretty Maids All In A Row.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    To say this game is going to be very difficult for me is a huge understatement. For me, every song on this album is superb. This may be, perhaps, my favorite album of all time. Even though I love every song, I do have my favorites of favorites. And although I think it is a beautiful song, I do always find myself gravitating towards eliminating PMAIAR first, so I guess that means it's my least favorite. In any event, I think I'll wait to vote to see how the rest of the round plays out.

    And scottside - consider the excoriation done!

    OK, well looks like PMAIAR is going to be the 'alternative' song to vote for in an effort to keep TLR in play. I know people think TLR is rather too long, a bit depressive and a but boring but I did hear it live when DH was touring in Ireland a few years ago and its impact was huge. I've always loved the story (Ok saga) and the harmonies invoked and the way it builds up to a crescendo. Its one of those songs I can SEE as it plays out (if that makes sense). Its also my sons favourite Eagles song since he first heard it at age 2 (he's now 15)

    So I vote off 'Pretty Maids All in a Row' and hopefully keep TLR

    I know that this is a tough for one for all, as all the songs are really good here, but come on, The Last Resort and Pretty Maids All in a Row are the picks so far to be the first to go? Sorry, but I cannot go along with either of those. I would rank both of those as being above about the half the other songs on the album. PMAIAR is Joe's best song as an Eagle, and TLR is one of the Eagles best all-around songs. Sure, neither of them 'rock', but they are the 2 most thoughtful and beautiful songs on the album.

    No, although it will not make any difference here, I have to vote for Try and Love Again, another very good song, but as everyone is saying, something has to go, and it is my least favorite on the album.

    I hate to see The Last Resort be the first song to be eliminated - I think it is a great song. I was hoping that the players would rally to save it. And while I agree with BBKron that Pretty Maids is a beautiful song, I can't agree that it is the most thoughtful song on the album, so ...

    I cast my vote for Pretty Maids All in a Row.

So pack up all your hopes and dreams and sail to Lahaina. They call this island paradise, I don’t know why. But, it’s time to leave it all behind – so kiss it goodbye.
