Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Lost/Found/Hide/Seek.

~~~~~~~~~~

As the title track from their 1975 album of the same name, One of These Nights became the Eagles’ second single to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart after Best of My Love and also helped propel the album to number one.

Lead singer Glenn Frey said 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.”

FUN FACT:

  • One of These Nights was influenced by R&B music and disco; according to Frey, he was listening to Spinners and Al Green records when he started writing the song. Frey started the writing process by composing the music, and Henley then started with the lyrics.
  • While they were recording the album in Miami, the band also shared a studio with the Bee Gees, and according to Henley, the “four-on-the-floor” bass-drum pattern is a nod to disco.
  • One of These Nights was a conscious attempt by the band to write something different from a country-rock and ballad-type song.

Enjoy!
