Eagles: Peaceful Easy Feeling, Already Gone and You Belong To The City.
"Peaceful Easy Feeling" was on the band's 1972 debut album Eagles and this song sums up how the band was feeling when they were photographed for the cover. The single reached #22 on the charts and is one of the band's most popular songs. Glenn Frey sings the lead vocal, with Bernie Leadon singing harmony vocal and Randy Meisner completing this three-part harmony. This song was written by Jack Tempchin, who was a friend of Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey.
Tempchin went on to write "Already Gone" for the Eagles and helped Frey write his solo hit "You Belong To The City." Which was used in the TV series Miami Vice. In 1985, Frey acted in an episode of the show that was based on his song "Smuggler's Blues".
