Beautiful faces and loud empty places
Look at the way that we live
Wastin' our time on cheap talk and wine
Left us so little to give
Not our favorite Eagles song by a long stretch, "Best of My Love" was released as a single on this date in 1974 and took its sweet time climbing the charts, finally hitting No. 1 in March the following year. It was the first of five chart-toppers for the band.
"Best of My Love" has been a popular song at weddings, but did anybody take time to check the lyrics? You might as well play "Heartache Tonight," which also ascended to No. 1. Can you name the other three? Shouldn't be too hard...
