Monday Night Random Live Thread:Top 100 Songs Of The 70's Song #100

Well as many of you know besides my love of the Dolphins and the Hurricanes and of course "the Little Red Shoed Rangers" my other passion is music. Not that I play anything unless you count the stereo. With that in mind and this being the slow time of the year I decided to start a new series on the top one hundred songs of the greatest decade of music, the 70's. Thursday and Friday night's posts will remain the same over that duration but most nights will be our countdown unless we have some breaking Phins related news.

Now these are not songs from my list but an independent list who's rankings are based on initial and lasting popularity and acclaim from critics and fellow artist. Some of them I do not and you will not agree with and maybe that's the point of such lists. They create conversation's. I will post one of these until we get to number one. Just like the list of all time great Dolphin players the number one selection is not going to surprise anyone but there will be, like with that other list, some surprises for some along the way and some others might just lead you to a new artist that you have long overlooked.

So with that we have our number 100 song of the 70's. Number 100 is "One Of These Nights" by the "Eagles". One Of These Nights is from their fourth studio album of the same name released in 1975. The song was released as a single on May 19, 1975. It is their second single to reach number one. The single version differs from the album version having had the intro removed and most of the songs fade out as well. The song was co-written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. According to songwriter Glenn Frey, the song is about putting things off. "We've all said, 'one of these nights I'm gonna do something -- get that girl, make that money, find that house. We all have our dreams - a vision we hope will come true someday. When that 'someday' will come is up to each of us."
