    Happy 45th anniversary to my second favorite Eagles album ...

    DESPERADO!!!

    To me, this album has grown better with time. I never gained a full appreciation for it until about 10 - 15 years ago when I bought my Eagles box set and listened to it intently after many years. This album is one of the band's most influential pieces of work and they have performed every song on it live. I love the line that Glenn used about it in the Under the Covers DVD when looking at some old photos - "This isn't history, it's evidence". And Soda, also love your celebration banner - in the same DVD, Don describes how cool it was to ride down Sunset Blvd. and see themselves on a billboard.

    I was just scanning this thread (which is very interesting if I must say so myself) and was reminded of a little 'game' we used to do several years ago. Since we aren't going to do a Survivor game for Desperado yet, I thought it may be something interesting to revive, especially for some of our newer members.

    If you go back to pages 10 - 13 in this thread, you will see how this all worked. I'll go ahead and repost the beginning post here. If you want to post your list, I'll recalulate the results and post them in about a week. For older members who already contributed, you can repost your list if you like, but I won't include them in the final compilation.

    So here goes - I'm going to recap how this works for those folks who may be new to this ...

    This isn稚 exactly a game, but more like a poll with no other purpose than to be an exercise of fun. I知 going to list all the songs on the album and ask folks to rank them in the order that they like the songs from favorite to least favorite. I値l give folks a week to post their list in this thread, and then I値l calculate the results so you can see how close your list is to the combined results.

    I値l calculate the lists like this. There are 10 songs on the album, so I値l assign a point value of 10 points to the song that each person lists in 1st place, 9 points for the 2nd place song, and so on until the last place song gets 1 point as follows:

    Song 1 10 points
    Song 2 9 points
    Song 3 8 points
    Song 4 7 points
    Song 5 6 points
    Song 6 5 points
    Song 7 4 points
    Song 8 3 points
    Song 9 2 points
    Song 10 1 point

    For example, Person A puts the song 羨BC in 3rd place so it gets 8 points; Person B puts 羨BC in 5th place so it gets 6 points; and Person C puts 羨BC in 6th place so it gets 5 points. So all total, the song 羨BC gets 19 points. Then, Person A puts the song 噌YZ in 1st place so it gets 10 points; Person B puts 噌YZ in 4th place so it gets 7 points; and Person C puts 噌YZ in 2nd place so it gets 9 points. So all total, the song 噌YZ gets 26 points.

    After I calculate the combined scores from everyone痴 list, I値l post the list in the order of which songs had the highest points to the lowest. You will be able to see how close your list comes to the 杜aster list. If others post a list after a week, I値l update it with their scores. So here we go the songs for the Desperado album are as follows:

    Doolin-Dalton
    Twenty-One
    Out of Control
    Tequila Sunrise
    Desperado
    Certain Kind of Fool
    Outlaw Man
    Saturday Night
    Bitter Creek
    Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise

    Now, list these songs in the order of your most favorite to least favorite.

    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
