Somewhere out on that horizon
Out beyond the neon lights
I know there must be somethin’ better
But there’s nowhere else in sight
Welcome to my April A-Z! I’m exploring songs by the fabulous Eagles and today’s feature is “In the City,” a 1979 hit written by Joe Walsh and Barry De Vorzon for the film The Warriors. Walsh recorded it first as a solo, and then later again that same year with the Eagles for their album The Long Run. Walsh provides lead vocals on this song. Though “In the City” was never released as a single, it’s still a fan fave and played often on AOR radio. The track was also included in the Eagles 1994 comeback album Hell Freezes Over.
I was born here in the city
With my back against the wall
Nothing grows and life ain’t very pretty
No one’s there catch you when you fall
E-trivia: The Long Run was the Eagles last studio album with Asylum Records ~ and also their last one together as a group until 1994. The album was certified 7× Platinum by the RIAA and has sold more than eight million copies in the US. (Source: Wikipedia)
