This bit of the Music Tree is pretty Eyrie

This week we are listening to Soft Rock, represented by the Eagles’ 1976 album Hotel California. The Eagles were highly successful in the 70s, easily distinguished by their unusually large and powerful build. They share features common to birds of prey, such as sharply hooked beaks and talons, making them the highest-selling American band of the decade. The Eagles’ first album of all-new material since the 70s was released in 2007, coinciding with the first Golden Eagle chick hatching in Northern Ireland in over a century. Hotel California is about the effect of habitat destruction on North American society, mirroring the percieved decline of eagle populations into immorality and materialism.

Wait, I may have got muddled up there…
