Don Henley had become one of the most recognisable faces of the music industry throughout the 1970’s as drummer and vocalist with the Eagles. After the acrimonious breakup of the band, Henley started performing solo and had a top 5 hit with this song. In much the same way as the Eagles, this song just sounds like California in the late 70s and early 80s.

Great song that needs to be included in this countdown.
