    Default Coming up on September 4: Eagles All-Star Survivor

    Okay folks - It has taken awhile, but we have recently completed a cycle of Survivor Games for all of the seven Eagles studio albums and the Eagles Live album. The winners of all of these Survivor games will now compete for the ultimate prize of being selected the best of the best. The game will start one week from tonight and here are the winning songs from each album that will be included in the competition:

    One of These Nights
    Waiting in the Weeds
    Take It Easy
    Heartache Tonight
    Already Gone
    Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise
    Seven Bridges Road
    New Kid in Town

    I hope you will join us, but be warned, you are going to have to make some brutal choices.

    Hmm. I can't wait.

    Did Take It Easy also win for Eagles album too. I know it won from HFO.

    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.

    Can't wait!

    A couple of my least favorite Eagles songs are on here, and a whole lot of favorites.

    After the first 3 or so songs, it will be very, very tough. At least Hotel California isn't on here. lol

    Oooooh I'm looking forward to this. But having to choose between Take It Easy, Heartache Tonight, New Kid in Town, and Waiting in the Weeds will be positively brutal!

    Yep - We've played the Eagles LP Survivor game three times over the years and Take It Easy won the game all three times.

    I know it just doesn't seem right not having Hotel California in an All-Star Eagles game.

    but it's going to be a tough one!

    Very strange that Hotel California is not on the list!

    Well a lot of people don't like HC. It is sad its not in the All-Time Game, but it is what is.

    Which I don't really understand. To me that song and album is what made them what they are. Their defining masterpiece. It's like they said "You thought Desperado was a concept album masterpiece, well listen to THIS!". They totally outdid Desperado and really soared to new heights.

    Although I say all that knowing that I DID vote for NKIT to win for HC survivor and contributed to it not being in this lineup. I thought I'd give NKIT some love as it's really grown to be a favorite. And from the voting results, it wouldn't have mattered how I alone would have voted. So there's that.

    In a way, not having HC here makes this slightly easier for me, because I'm not going to have to be so strong in voting for it and rallying around it. Because while I voted for NKIT to win HC survivor, I absolutely would have voted for HC to win the All Star Survivor, hands down no questions asked.

    I already have a favorite in this lineup and plan on seeing it to victory!

    So Austin - do you really think the Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise will win the game?

    II am looking forward to this ! It will be hard to chose between most of these songs. It should be very interesting !
    Austin, I agree, it seems strange that HC is not in the mix of songs. I also agree about the HC album taking the group to the Superstar status. They were huge after the release of OOTN, but HC made them the biggest band of the 70's.
