25 songs in 25 days #2

One song per day along with an explanation of why you picked it. Day 2 – a song that reminds you of your most recent ex-girlfriend

The Eagles – Desperado (from the album ‘Desperado’ – 1973)

Yes, that was a long time ago. But then, so was my last ex-girlfriend – Diane Lomax. That would have been sometime in late 1976/early 1977 as, later in ’77 I went to art college and met a girl who’d become my wife – and still is! But more about that later in this challenge.

Diane was a massive Eagles fan and Desperado was one of her favourites. Although an Eagles signature song – the title track was never released as a single. It did manage to make it into Rolling Stone magazine’s 2004 “The 500 greatest songs of all time” list though – no mean feat for a song never released as a single.
