Day 439: Lyin’ Eyes, The Eagles

Surprised I have not cited this Eagles classic before now. This song was the 5th track on their One of these nights album and is certainly one of their classics. Apparently the inspiration for this song came about as follows:

The title and idea for the song came when Glenn Frey and Don Henley were in their favourite Los Angeles restaurant/bar Dan Tana’s which was frequented by many beautiful women, and they started talking about beautiful women who were cheating on their husbands. They saw a beautiful young woman with a fat and much older wealthy man, and Frey said: “She can’t even hide those lyin’ eyes.” (Wikipedia)
