This song, from Joe's But Seriously, Folks is one of my favorites, as is the entire LP, which is actually pleasant to listen to in its entirety. Recorded between Hotel California and The Long Run, it featured all of the other Eagles at that time, as well as Jay Ferguson (Thunder Island), and was co-produced (with Joe) by Eagles collaborator Bill Szymczyk.

A dark night of the collective soul

It occurred to me some time back that In the Garden of Allah, Henley's take on Lucifer visiting a major west coast city (Los Angeles, but could be almost any of them), and finding his work had all been done, was similar thematically to Mr. Aurandt's famous broadcast. Unfortunately, the video of it is blocked on YouTube.

It's alive!

In which Peter Boyle gives Madeline Kahn a lift.
