The Eagles--King Of Hollywood (1980)
From the Fall of '79 throughout the Summer of '80, virtually every track from the Eagles
LP The Long Run
received significant AOR airplay. This Lost Rock Track Of The Week
--a very graphical look at the exploitation of young women in the Movie industry--was no exception.
Unfortunately, it took a back seat to the many smash pop/rock hits on the LP, largely because it had no pop/top 40 crossover appeal at all.
IMHO, this is the finest Eagles track ever, which is saying something.

Off Broadway--Stay In Time (1980)
Speaking of pop/top 40 appeal, this catchy track had it, but failed to reach the pop top 40. AOR radio listeners ate it up, however.
This instantly recognizable track--I know, I say that every week--was/is often mistaken for a Cheap Trick
song. IMHO, this band/track deserved a similar fate as Robin Zander and the boys. Nevertheless, this Oak Park, Illinois band is actually working on an updated version of the song for a 2112 release.
