The Eagles and Their Remastered Hit, “One of These Nights”


While The Eagles are considered as a hardcore country-rock band singing some really nice ballads during 1975, these artists did not shy away from testing the waters and going a little bit of R&B and disco. To make the hodgepodge of the genre even more complicated, it was actually inspired by a soul music that was listened to by Don Henley. It is no secret that at some point artists try to stay away from the boxes of genre and breakaway proving that their artistry is not limited to a single type of music. This song ‘One of These Nights’ is proven one of those best songs that divert a band from being caged into a specific genre.

One of These Nights, The Eagles

One of These Nights is a song that echoes one’s desire to put some things off and just do what you are ought to do in life. In an interview with Phonograph Record, The Eagles member, Glenn Frey revealed the song’s meaning:

“It’s like, puttin’ things off… Everybody I’m sure has said, ‘One of these nights I’m gonna…’ Gonna drive back to that restaurant an’ take that waitress in my arms, whatever. Find that girl, make that money, buy that house. Move to that country. Any of that stuff. Everyone’s got his ultimate dream, savin’ it for ‘someday.’ And ‘someday’ is up to you.”

In the liner notes of ‘The Very Best Of,’ Frey also revealed that it is probably his favorite song among all songs recorded by The Eagles:

“We had Don Henley’s voice, which allowed us to go in a more soulful direction, which made me exceedingly happy … A lot of things came together on One Of These Nights – our love of the studio, the dramatic improvement in Don’s and my songwriting. We made a quantum leap with “One Of These Nights.” It was a breakthrough song. It is my favorite Eagles record. If I ever had to pick one, it wouldn’t be “Hotel California”; it wouldn’t be “Take It Easy.” For me, it would be “One Of These Nights.”
