In honor of this week's Cocktail Hour, we present Tequila Sunrise from the album Desperado.
The song vaguely hints at an Eagles specialty, a guy with a girl well past his station in life trying to hold on to that tenuous relationship. The song was writting by Henley and Frey after a night of drinking tequila and came together when the sun came up. It's a smooth, kind of deserty feeling song that is perfect for that drive to the Grand Canyon...try it, you'll see!
The video is from the Hell Freezes Over PBS special with Glenn Frey doing the singing, enjoy!
