The Eagles were the 70s. It's impossible to think of the 70s and not think of songs like "Take it Easy" and "Hotel California". But by 1980 the band members (particularly Don Henley and Glenn Frey) were at each others throats and split up, vowing never to play together again. With not much else to do Don Henley embarked on a solo career and proved pretty convincingly that he was the major creative force behind the Eagles success.

His second solo album "Building the Perfect Beast" was released in 1984. It was a huge seller and contained several top 40 hits including "The Boys of Summer" and the song I'm featuring here, "All She Wants to do is Dance"; a funky little tale about bad boys courting trouble in a Central American banana republic and one particular chiquita who's always party-ready.
