The Eagles

The Eagles
Een Amerikaanse band, opgericht in 1971 in Los Angeles. De groepsleden: Don Henley (drums & zang), The Eagles -1.jpgGlenn Frey (gitaar, piano & zang), Bernie Leadon (gitaar, banjo & zang) en Randy Meisner (bas, gitaar & zang). Enkele titels van hun vele grote hits: "Take it Easy" - "Hotel California" - "One of these Nights". De muziek van The Eagles was een mix van country en rock. De 4 muziekanten van de groep hadden elk degelijke tot uitstekende zangkwaliteiten, waar ze ook op een prachtige manier gebruik van maakten.  De harmonieuze zangpartijen, én de combinatie van elektrische- en akoestische instrumenten, zorgden voor een kenmerkende sound, die destijds vernieuwend en unieke was.
Eerste split van de groep in 1980. In 1994 kwamen hun eerste reünieconcerten, er volgde er nog een aantal in 1996 en 2001.
In 2007 verscheen er verrassend een nieuw album: "Long road out of Eden".

The Eagles - Busy Being Fabulous

I came home to an empty house
And I found your little note
"Don't wait up for me tonight"
And that was all she wrote

Do you think I don't know that you're out on the town
With all of your high-rollin' friends?
But what do you do when you come up empty?
Where do you go when the party ends?

And you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
Well, I don't know what you were dreaming of
Somehow you forgot about love
And you were just too busy being fabulous, uh-huh

A little time in the country
A day or two to slow down
A bottle of wine and a walk in the moonlight
Maybe some foolin' around

But you think time is just a magazine
And money's just a thrill
I've waited so long for you to change your way of livin'
But now I realize that you never will

'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
Lookin' for something you'll never find
You'll never know what you left behind
'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous, uh-huh

You tell a joke and everybody's laughin'
That's something you know how to do
You've always been the life of the party
But now my baby, the joke is on you

'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
Running after something that never comes
What in the world are you runnin' from?

And you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
To drink the wine from the winner's cup
To notice your children were growin' up
And you were just too busy being fabulous; Too busy, too busy, …

The Eagles - How long The Eagles -Live.jpg

Like a blue bird with his heart removed, lonely as a train
I've run just as far as I can run
If I never see the good old days shinin' in the sun
I'll be doin' fine and then some

Chorus:

How long, how long

Woman will you weep
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

Well I been doin' time in lonesome prison,
where the sun don't shine
Just outside, the freedom river runs
Out there in that shiny night,
with blood hounds on your mind
Don't you know it's the same sad situation?

Repeat Chorus

Everybody feels alright you know,
I heard some poor fool say (Somebody Ooooo)
Everyone is out there on the loose
Well I wish I lived in the land of fools, ¨'
no one knew my name
But what you get is not quite what you choose

Chorus:

Tell me, how long, how long …


How long, how long (long and drawn out)
Muddy River runs so deep
How long, how long (long and drawn out)
Good night baby, rock yourself to sleep,
Sleep tight baby, rock yourself to sleep,
B-B-B Bye bye baby, Rock yourself to sleep
