Heartache Tonight 45 by The Eagles.

The Eagles had me from the a cappella type introduction.

“Heartache Tonight” was written by committee but what a committee it was. Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bob Seger, and J.D. Souther got together to pen one of The Eagles biggest hits.

The Eagles were huge stars when they released the song during early October of 1979. It would become their fifth number one single topping the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart for one week.

As usual the harmonies were impeccable. The song won a GRAMMY AWARD for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group. This is one the Grammy’s actually got right.
