R.I.P. Glenn Frey

Man!! I can’t believe that another entertainer has past away. Today when I checked my e-mail I saw that the founding member of The Eagles, Glenn Frey died at the age of 67.

Glenn Frey

One of my favorite songs be The Eagles is “New Kid In Town” (1976).

 “New Kid in Town:” The first single off of 1976’s “Hotel California,” ”New Kid in Town” features Frey’s lead vocals and Don Henley’s harmonies. They co-wrote the song with frequent collaborator J.D. Souther.

And one of my favorite songs by him as a solo artist was “The Heat Is On” (1984).

I think he was my favorite member of the band because he was born in Detroit, Michigan. I remember when he guest starred on Miami Vice in the first season episode “Smuggler’s Blues” and when he was in the film, Jerry Maguire.

R.I.P. Glenn Frey. You’re music will live on forever.

The Streets of Heaven are too crowded with Angels tonight… by Joshua Hill

The streets of Heaven are too crowded with Angels tonight.
Don’t let them be forgotten, don’t let them fade away.
God bless their memory, God bless our nation’s
The streets of Heaven are too crowded with Angels tonight.

The Streets of Heaven are too crowded with Angels tonight…

Witchy Woman

I haven’t blogged about a song that gets on my nerves in awhile. Here is one of the many on that list of songs — “Witchy Woman” by The Eagles.

Witchy Woman” is a song written by Don Henley and Bernie Leadon, and recorded by the American rock band Eagles. Released as the second single from the band’s debut album Eagles, it reached #9 on the Billboard Pop singles chart and is the only single from the album to feature Henley on lead vocals.

From Wikipedia.com

There is something about this song from 1972 that gets on my nerves! I don’t know if it’s the beginning with the musical intro or if it’s the lyrics (heavens knows, I rarely listen to the lyrics of a song) or if it’s the sound of Don Henley’s voice or the Woo hoo witchy woman lyrics?

But every time I hear this song, I get the same reaction…. PFFFFFFT!

And just in case you want to sing along to this song, here you go!

Witchy Woman by The Eagles

Songwriter(s): Don Henley, Bernie Leadon

Raven hair and ruby lips

Sparks fly from her finger tips

Echoed voices in the night

She’s a restless spirit on an endless flight

Wooo hooo witchy woman

See how high she flies

Woo hoo witchy woman

She got the moon in her eye

She held me spellbound in the night

Dancing shadows and firelight

Crazy laughter in another room

And she drove herself to madness with a silver spoon

Woo hoo witchy woman, see how high she flies

Woo hoo witchy woman, she got the moon in her eye

Well I know you want a lover

Let me tell you brother, she’s been sleeping in the Devil’s bed

There’s some rumors going round, someone’s underground

She can rock you in the nighttime ’til your skin turns red

Woo hoo witchy woman

See how high she flies

Woo hoo witchy woman

She got the moon in her eye.
