Song of the Day for May 3rd is "Lyin Eyes" by the Eagles. Really old choice for DOL song of the day, maybe the oldest yet. I really like the Eagles they have countless great songs and the best harmonies, maybe the best vocal band in rock history.
I've been on a huge Eagles kick lately. I do this all the time, I'll get really into an old band for like 3 weeks. So far recently I've had phases with the Beach Boys, Huey Lewis and the News, and the Beatles this year and now my latest older music binge has been the Eagles. It was inspired by this show Documentary Now. I've been watching Documentary Now on Netflix, it's a series staring Bill Hader and Fred Armisen that parodies famous documentaries (hilarious show, highly recommend it). They have two-episode parody of the Eagles with their own soft rock band called the blue jean committee that makes fun of the history of the Eagles, it's absolutely hilarious, especially after learning more about the real band.
After I finished the series I started to try to watch the original documentaries they parodied, found "The History of the Eagles" on Netflix, watched it and have been hooked on the Eagles for like a week now. I had always know their really big hits like Hotel California or Take it Easy but didn't know their catalog that well, in fact because they have multiple singers there were many songs I've heard on classic rock stations that I enjoyed that I didn't even realize was them. The actual documentary is very good as well, learned a ton about the music industry, their history and a lot about the inspiration for many of their songs, as a big music and history guy it was a perfect documentary for ole dozo.
With all that being said, here is today's song of the day. "Lyin Eyes" by The Eagles from their 1975 album "Take it Easy".
RIP Glenn Frey
