I don’t know if this ever happens to you, but it does to me, on occasion:
Some songs have lyrics that hit you just right at just the right time in your life, or in a song by itself, and forever afterwards, whenever you hear them, you know that music is, for these small moments, still in good hands.
Here are three (of so many) Eagles/related moments:
Eagles – Take It Easy “We may lose and we may win, but we will never be here again, so open up by climbing in, and take it easy”
That line just hums with real.
Eagles – Hotel California “we haven’t had that spirit here since 1969”
Inspired writing and nailed perfectly in the tune.
Don Henley – Boys Of Summer “Out on the road today I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac / A little voice inside my head said / Don’t look back, you can never look back”
You can probably quote a ton more. Drop a comment!
