"The Disco Strangler" as written by and Don Felder Don Henley....
Lookin' for the good life
Dressed to kill
She don't have to worry 'cause
There's always someone else who will
Loose and loaded every night
Dancin' underneath the flashin' light
Sayin, 'look at me, baby, look at me.
I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, I'm somebody.'
Just slip into the arms of the disco strangler

He's been around here all along, baby,
Been waiting for his time to come.
You lookin' for attention, darlin'
He will surely give you some

He's the crimson in your face du jour,
The fiddler in your darkest night.
He's the melody without a cure
And Rome is burning, but that's all right.
Just slip into the arms of the disco strangler
Just slip into the arms of the disco strangler

    General CommentReally one of the Eagle's B-sides even though its a pretty good song. The song is self-explanatory if read deep into the lyrics. Its about a murderer who seducts women at night clubs... hence the disco strangler.

    General CommentIt's also their commentary on the late 70's disco scene. They would frequent the clubs and see empty souls who were caught up in the night club/disco scene. Good song about the big city, late 70's life.

    General CommentI feel the Long Run sort of runs a thematic "disco" atmosphere wth this song, Those Shoes and maybe King of Hollywood
