Don Henley: Building The Perfect Beast (1984)
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."
I thought I knew what love was.
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever.
I should just let 'em go, but
- Boys of Summer, Don Henley
This is a strange record for me to own, since I was never a big Eagles fan. For some reason, I acquired a copy of this record, and then I lost it and a bunch of other records in a vinyl loaning experience in residence. I don't like to think about that. Years later, I found a free copy, with a cover that is a bit rough.
I think that Boys of Summer is a good track, and I think it holds up today. I think the video is pretty good too. Unfortunately, UMG has blocked youtube access to that video, so screw them.
The remainder of the album is uninteresting, if you ask me.
