    Default Re: Results for Round Four

    The next song to be eliminated in Hotel California Survivor is Victim of Love. “Victim of Love”, the tribe has spoken and we could be wrong, but we’re not. It was such an easy part and we thought you knew how to play it so well. But, now, all we see is a broken heart. This ain’t no time to be cool, so you must leave the island immediately.

    Votes
    Victim of Love – 7
    Wasted Time – 4
    Hotel California – 2
    Life in the Fast Lane – 1

    Boo! I was hoping for all of the ballads/soft songs to go bye bye before the rockers. At least PMAIAR, TLR, and TALA went down first before VOL!

    Again, I'm voting for Wasted Time. Please join me!

    How could TALA go before VOL - I love TALA. I was on vacation and missed that voting.

    I vote for Life In The Fast Lane.

    Hmm. I'm also of the opinion that "Hotel California" is overrated and it might be a good idea to vote it off now, but I do think it's better than "Wasted Time." I might see how the voting goes before casting mine!

    I'm voting for Wasted Time.

    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

    For me, hotel California is the song I knew of the Eagles before I became a band. It’s a great song but to me it doesn’t seem like “them”. It’s very different from anything else they’ve done lyrically. I have an appreciation for how good it is but it’s not a favorite of my at all

    I haven’t been playing this game b/c I couldn’t bear to vote off any of the songs. I know that sounds silly. At this point I’m still not sure what I would vote off.

    Hotel California - Pros: so iconic, a real game-changer that is famous all the world over. Incredible lyrics, amazing guitar solos. A mysterious, haunting vibe. People who aren’t familiar with the band at least know this song. Cons: overplayed and overexposed and maybe just maybe a little overrated. Predictable win and predictable is boring.

    Life in the Fast Lane - Pros: a true 70s rocker, dangerous and thrilling, doesn’t get enough love, imo. Also a great guitar song. Henley sings a range of emotions and sounds anything from excited to detached to almost desperate to resigned. I love how his in this. Cons: hmmm 🤔 trying to think of some- not enough Randy?

    New Kid in Town - Pros: wonderful vocal by Glenn, righteous harmonies and one of their best intros. A familiar but relatable story. Nice little guitar solo thrown in the middle by Felder. Stays true to their country rock roots. Cons: see LITFL.

    Wasted Time - Pros: Another killer Henley vocal. A sad break-up story with a different angle from most. Thoughtful, stirring lyrics. Cons: A wee bit tedious. The line about her being back on the streets doesn’t sit well. Why must Henley show her in a bad light?

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!
