The Eagles are fucking amazing. I know people hate them because its not their style or they are overplayed on the radio, but its like hating the Beatles. They were amazing songwriters who recorded their music perfectly. Great songwriting, melody, harmonies, and very talented musicians. So much hate from mainly non-musicians who know dick-all about music for a band that wrote some of the all-time classic pop songs. You go write a song half as good as Hotel California, Take It Easy, Take It To the Limit, or Desperado or any of that old shit. Fucking Eagles shit all over you.

It's not the kind of bands i ever truly gave a good listen to. There's something about the sound of 70's rock in general that just doesn't resonate with me like at all. Its like that.

Actually i know what it mainly is, it being rooted in blues or folk or both. The further rock goes from blues the better i like it. Even if i do realise really even when it thinks its far form it its not really that much.

slunken
10-04-2014, 09:34 PM
i can feel that, actually. the california vibe, especially in the 70s, can be difficult to resonate with. it was like another planet.

what i mean is that, emotionally, so much more was happening in so many other places. 70s CA was the breeding grounds for everything horrible about the music industry.

That's a fair point, I definitely think musicians judge music differently than non-musical listeners. That's not to say a non-musical listener cannot listen and appreciate certain musical qualities tho.

Reading this book on The Fall however it's easy to see how so many people could not relate at all to the fantasy that was 70s radio and disco. Most rock bands were even projecting a superficial image.

If you are musician that cares anything at all about melody or knows his ass from a hole in the ground, and you're sitting there with your guitar trying to write a song, and you write Hotel California, don't tell me you don' ejaculate all over the place. I don't give a shit if you're "punk" or whatever. You jizz on the guitar.

In your world maybe. You do realise everything is subjective right? You can't tell me that objectively hotel california is a good song and it doesn't matter who you are. you can say it but you're wrong. You can point at it having been a no1 or the amount of units it sold, that still doesn't mean shit.

You're trying to make the value of a piece of art be objective. It isn't. Are you saying that any guitar player should love the guitar part of Hotel California and only dream to write a similar one? I've never tried to write a song that sounded even remotely like it and if i did i'd for sure dismiss it (it would be quite an accident though). It's ok to not like or even hate hotel california, it doesn't make anyone a moron and it doesnt' mean they just don't know shit about music. It doesn't make anyone a moron to like it either.

You're starting to sound like all those guys that hang on musicians and gear forums. "Oh i have an understanding of music that is so beyond the plebes, I hear shit they don't and it makes my opinion more valid." Music is really not rocket science, you're not hearing sounds the musically uneducated isn't, maybe you can more easily pinpoint to what you hear, maybe you can explain what it's doing, but they're still hearing it. "No but i understand the key and time signature changes that happened here and the counterpoint to blahblah" Great it makes you feel rewarded that you didn't waste your time getting musically educated, that still doesn't make a song any better. It's an emotional responses. I get none when i hear Hotel Califronia, (actually i do but it's very negative)

10-05-2014, 04:48 PM
look the eagles made great songs but are also undeniably lame and not remotely subversive or unpredictable

hotel california has great lyrics and melody and a great solo and it helped me learn guitar when i started, but something about the unplugged version, especially the first minute or so, makes me immediately angry. it's hard to explain although part of it has to do with my dad and several teachers i had (and every other white dad) buying it when it came out in 1994 and the drastic comparison between how slow and mellow it is to all the other crazy energetic music coming out then

Hotel California is ojectively a great pop song. As are most of the Eagles hits. That's what they unapologetically are--hit makers..



Ok now what constitutes an objectively not great pop song. Would you say that every pop song that ever became a major hit made by artists that were unapologetically hit makers are great pop songs?

the eagles are the kind of band i can listen to any time and enjoy but i'll never get anything really meaningful out of. some good songs. hell freezes over was one of my first albums. my dad used to play them on the piano a lot when i was a kid. the eagles and carly simon.

desperado is an amazing song, too.

I dont think one can truly be objective about any band their parents listened to when they were kids though. Well at least if they love their parents and had a good childhood (maybe you didnt, i dont know). It's like for some reason i can't hate any song Madonna made in the 80's. And by I can't hate i mean i like all her 80's songs. But i'm aware it's likely just nostalgia.

Do you think some people are objectively pretty? I think our brains know what is 'good' from hard wiring via genetics and survival of the fittest programming (for being attracted to people in particular), but then there are modifiers such as parental influence and personal tastes and triggers to other things etc.

The exploding boy

No one is objectively pretty no. There are certain physical features that determine a basic let's say agreed upon standard of beauty but no one can agree 100% on who is or isn't good looking. A majority can agree maybe, but not everyone.

Eagles frontman Don Henley sues Duluth Trading Co.
By Bridget Shanahan. CREATED 1:20 PM

Eagles frontman Don Henley is suing a Wisconsin company -- because of what he's calling a copyright violation in one of the store's ads.
The ad in question, put out by Duluth Trading Company, reads, "Don A Henley, And Take It Easy." It's promoting their Henley T-shirts, which are also pictured in the ads.

"Take It Easy," is a popular Eagles song.

Henley's lawyers said the ad was trademark infringement and wrongly implies Henley endorsed the product.

A statement from an Eagles' spokesman said band members take offense when someone "tries to piggyback and capitalize" on their work.

"We are aware of the claims made by Mr. Henley. Our policy is to not comment on the specifics regarding matters of litigation," said a Duluth Trading Company spokesperson in a statement.

Duluth Trading is headquartered in Belleville and sells primarily online and through catalogs. It has six stores in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
