I'm not sure I ever knew about the Ozark Mountain Festival. This is kinda blowing my mind:

Posters for the festival announced that some of the best bands in country and southern rock would be performing, including:

Bachman–Turner Overdrive
Aerosmith
Premiata Forneria Marconi

Will someone call me back when it's time to take it to the limit?

"but I'd expect ilx to do this first for a band it likes a lot more."

see i was actually thinking yesterday that it would be fun for bands that i (and others here) have never listened to. except for, like, one hit. like Timbuk 3 or something. but then i remembered that a lot of groups i have forgotten about have put out a zillion records when nobody was looking. there might be 20 Timbuk 3 albums that i don't know about and there ain't no way i'm doing that. it would have to be a manageable discography.

weirdly the eagles are like the perfect band to try this with

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 00:46 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah, they are good. well, just thinking about songs that you've heard a million times until you don't hear them anymore can be a good exercise.

and i don't really want to listen to lots of timbuk 3 albums.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 00:54 (five years ago) Permalink

somehow it feels like the Eagles made way more than 6 studio albums (7 including the 2007 post-reunion album) given their omnipresence

i was surprised that don henley didn't put out anything in the 90's. he must have been walking in the woods. 11 years between the end of the innocence and his album from 2000.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 01:01 (five years ago) Permalink

He had some new bait songs on his hits package, and..."Get Over It".

Uncle Cyril O'Boogie (C. Grisso/McCain), Wednesday, 21 August 2013 01:03 (five years ago) Permalink

the mellow don henley of the year 2000:

You could have given us the finger
Much more constructively than that
Now I sit here with the MTV
And your bloated, Burmese cat
We're being treated to the wisdom
Of some puffed up little fart
Doing exactly what I used to do
Pretentions to anarchy and art
He speaks the language of a warrior
He mounts his misinformed attack
He wears the clothes of a dissenter
But there's a logo on his back
And it's a hollow rebellion
As rebellions mostly are
It's just another raging tempest in a jar

Those words are in English, but that verse makes no sense!

Henley in the '90s...

In To The Limit, he mentions the video had to be edited down for consideration for airtime on MTV (yeah right) & VH1. "There was too much talkin' in it...the only white guy they want rappin' on MTV is Vanilla Ice."

and we have to ask why these people are so bad and hated?

no fomo (La Lechera), Wednesday, 21 August 2013 01:31 (five years ago) Permalink

that video is endless. i don't know if i could watch it all they way through. says the guy who wants to bathe in the eagles for the forseeable future...jesus, that does sound horrible. bathing in eagle water. the smell might never come off. you guys realize you will always be the person who knows to much about the eagles if you follow through with this. you might want to keep that on the down low. nobody will invite you to parties.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:12 (five years ago) Permalink

Ha, are you actually planning to discuss every single song in the Eagles' discography?? That only registered now, somehow. Whoa.

EveningStar (Sund4r), Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:26 (five years ago) Permalink

they laughed at madame curie too. right in her face! but someone has to do the dirty work.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:28 (five years ago) Permalink

This definitely feels like one of those "only Nixon could've gone to China" type things.

I packed my suitcase, I'm totally ready.

- 1 pair unwashed bellbottoms
- quaaludes
- coke

ludes not specifically mentioned in the hoskyns book but who the fuck knows, i'm sure they were around

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:45 (five years ago) Permalink

i always kinda wished i had tried a quaalude. they stopped making them during my drug years. i think. nobody had any anyway.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:47 (five years ago) Permalink

see, Eagles make you wistful.

scott seward, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 02:48 (five years ago) Permalink

They had a suitcase full of valium at that airport in the documentary, so if they weren't fucking with ludes specfically then boatloads of [insert downer]

that's kinda sad to have a suitcase full of valium. now valium i had PLENTY of during my drug days. thanks to my dad. he practically had a suitcase full. stressful times. for the both of us and for the nation. man, the eagles were bummed out.

The eagles are perfect because there are 20 eagles songs everyone's heard a million times and 70 eagles songs most of us have never heard

Yeah, even their "Very Best of" two-discer is about half stuff you don't hear much on the radio.

Before we move on to the next track, I just want to say I like "Take It Easy", and part of that stems from a story I heard somewhere about how Winslow, Arizona ended up in the lyric: Jackson Browne had been driving cross-country, picking up Route 66 to get to California when his car broke down in Winslow, and he had to stay there for a few days while it was repaired.

I'm thinking if we did an Eagles tracks poll, where you could include solo songs, that "Boys of Summer" would win.

jetfan, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 03:54 (five years ago) Permalink

I actually mostly like Take It Easy, at least until the speedfreak banjo gets on my nerves

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 21 August 2013 03:55 (five years ago) Permalink

so what are the rules: can we no longer discuss "take it easy" come tomorrow? or ever again? or are songs open for discussing going forward once they've been entered into the fray? also, will we have to start doing copious amounts of coke once they start doing copious amounts of coke?

fact checking cuz, Wednesday, 21 August 2013 04:04 (five years ago) Permalink

song a day should mean no bleedthrough imo

new song, new convo

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 21 August 2013 04:08 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah, Take It Easy is great. I dig the famous Xgau article but the political criticism of the Eagles is sort of... outdated? we have all grown to like yuppie music, right? the albums review is still important though, the "And not always all that brilliant, either" part. which is why this "one song each day" project is so necessary. bring it on!

the guitars kinda rule.
