I've been hearing that on the commercials. More royalties for JD! He must think the cover's decent, at least.

Speaking of JD, I was in the car today listening to my iPod and his song "Fifteen Bucks" came on. One of the lines in the song talks about how if only he had fifteen bucks, he'd be able to put some gas in his car and have some fun. Fifteen bucks' worth of gas wouldn't get him too far now!

LOL, Soda! That's so true!

Thanks for the info, Brooke.

I was at our local mall on Sunday, and while browsing through a clothing shop, India.Arie's version of HOTM came on the radio. I cringed (sorry all India.Arie fans) and started singing loudly along - in the Don Henley way! I don't think too many people heard me, but whether they heard or not didn't matter to me - I just kept wishing they had played Don's version!

I very much prefer Don's version, too.

I'm afraid I'm slightly less tolerant, because I was in a fast food shop last week, heard this version, and had to use all my self control to stop myself walking out. I don't think I've ever heard a cover version sung with less understanding or feeling for the lyrics.

I can understand your lack of tolerance, FP - that's precisely why I sang along... so I didn't have to listen to the singing!

Here is undercover.com.au's story on Souther's new album:

http://undercover.com.au/News-Story.aspx?id=5989

But to say Souther 'wrote' BOML, HT and NKIT is as inaccurate as saying Felder 'wrote' HC. I suspect that he may have written most of NKIT, much as I hate to admit that.

I am not really a Souther fan. I find his voice too bland, but I accept that he is part of Eagles history.

I already have 4 of those Songs, and yes, is a good work, even when I like his Music more into Country way than Jazzy.

By the way his Site still is Under Const. but there you can download a 100% quality file of his How long, that´s his not-soft side, notice is from 1972, turn it up the man is good!
