Desperado – This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “Desperado” by the Eagles. This song was written by was written by Glenn Frey and Don Henley. It was released in April 1973 as the title track on their second studio album. It is probably one of the band’s best known songs despite the fact that it was never released as a single.

I was a freshman in college at C.W.Post College on Long Island when this song was released. My strongest memory of this song is from several years later just after I moved to Houston in 1980. One of the local country dance clubs had “Desperado” in their playlists. Since the Eagles were not considered a “country” band, the song stood out.

Hope you enjoy “Desperado” by the Eagles.
