Documentary about “The Eagles”…

I just finished watching a 3-hour long documentary about the music super group “The Eagles”.  You probably know a half-dozen of their songs, even if you don’t know the songs are theirs.  Desperado, Take It To The Limit, The Long Run, Life In The Fast Lane.  Yes – THAT  group.

I didn’t know it until I watched this documentary on Netflix (titled: The History of the Eagles), but Linda Ronstadt was majorly responsible for bringing two of the key band members together, and later recorded a song they wrote that their own recording company didn’t want The Eagles to do.  It was Desperado, so, big thanks to Linda for believing in them.

I’m a huge Eagles fan, and am old enough to remember them from the years I was a teenager.  Most of their music is among the greatest ever made.  For me, though, there is one sour note in their whole catalog, and you’ll probably disagree with me as to which song it is.  In actual fact, I absolutely hate – – – HOTEL CALIFORNIA.  Something about that song rubs me wrong, and it always has.  I would dearly appreciate it if The Eagles would release a double-album sized collection of their greatest hits – that didn’t have that song on it anywhere.  I know, it will never happen.

Could someone build a stereo for me that absolutely won’t ever play that song, even accidentally?  Please?

  1. Sorry. I forgot to comment on the blog. I must have heard their song, including Hotel California, a hundred times and had no idea that I was. I will have to watch that documentary, as I know nothing really about them.
