Eagles: One of These Nights
on 19 January 2016
No matter what comes to mind upon hearing the term "soft-rock," there's no denying the power of the Eagles. The wildly popular band lost founding member Glenn Frey today, who passed away at the age of 67. Guitarist Frey and drummer Don Henley founded the band along with Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner in LA circa 1971 and released some huge songs (like "Hotel California") that we—collectively, seemingly inherently—know all the words to. Our pick to pay tribute is 1975's "One of These Nights," written by Frey and Henley, which includes all those Eagles trademarks and was (according to the liner notes in the band's Very Best of record) Frey's personal favorite: "We made a quantum leap with 'One Of These Nights.' It was a breakthrough song. It is my favorite Eagles record."
