Life's Been Good gets my vote. Yes it's good, it's a concert staple, but it's not an Eagles song and to be honest, I am sorta tired of it, plus FNY is "Already Gone'

I happen to love Please Come Home for Christmas and never really understood why it is so underrated by some Eagles fans. I guess it does lack the 'Eagles' sound and was more of a Henley recording rather than a band effort. It was done to pacify the record company because of the lack of progress in completing The Long Run album. But, still, I love the melody in the song and Don's yearning, bluesy vocals are definitely 'atmospheric' to me.

And in defense of Life's Been Good - I absolutely love this classic rocker. To me, it is Joe at his absolute best. We've had this debate many times and, AFAIC, it is definitely an adopted Eagles song. The band has been performing it since 1978 (approximately) and as Austin said, the Eagles version is superior to Joe's solo version. Besides, if I were going to vote off Joe's tracks that are solo songs, I would definitely vote for All Night Long first. It is far less 'Eagley' than LBG and not nearly as good, IMO. I like it and think it's catchy, but is another one with a lot of repetition.

I donít mind Please Come Home for Christmas but Funky New Year sounds like a glorified outtake to me. And if they were going to release outtakes as standalone songs, why that one?

I really like All Night Long and its rockin anthemic energy. I partly associate it with Urban Cowboy too and that whole country nightclub scene. Yes, it gets repetitive at the end but thatís what anthems often do. It was also a top 20 hit for Joe.

ANL and LBG, whether they are Eagles songs, quasi-Eagles, non-Eagles songs, etc. are simply better quality material than a lot of what remains on the list, IMO (and I too am a bit tired of LBG).

Anyway, my vote goes to Love Will Keep Us Alive.

I like LBG, I love PCHFC (I rather hear the Eagles version than the original version. I always look forward to hearing that for Christmas).

I'm voting for All Night Long.

Nowhere near as good as LBG with the Eagles.
