Best song on the album? I think too many people would just pick "Hotel California." So what's the 2nd-best song?
I voted wrong. I voted for The Last Resort. But the question asked for the second best song and I voted for my favorite!
Hotel California is, in fact, the worst song on that album, and is one of the 15 worst Eagles songs.
Considering "The Last Resort" is my favorite song by any band of all time, I am saddened that I accidentally voted it my second favorite song on its own album.
My second favorite would be Wasted Time, followed by Pretty Maids All in a Row.
Yeah, I liked "Hotel California" the first 15 or so times I heard it, but somewhere in the next 47,139 times it started to get old. Still, I feel like it's a pretty popular song, so I'm sure you can understand why I wanted to exclude it, even though the wording of the poll was a bit misleading.
I haven't listened to this album in a long time, but I'll be sure to relisten to "Last Resort" sometime soon.
