BONUS - Fly Like an Eagle - Steve Miller Band
|"Fly Like an Eagle" is a song written by
Steve Miller and by Steve Miller Band guitarist Steve McCarty for
album of the same name.
The song went to number 2 on the
Billboard Hot 100 chart during the week of March 12, 1977, kept from
the top spot by “Evergreen
(Love Theme from A Star Is Born)” by
Barbra Streisand. The single edit can be found on
Greatest Hits (1974–1978). The song has an unusually mellow and
"dreamy" feel. It is usually played in tandem with "Space Intro".
An earlier 1973 version of the song features a more bluesy and less funk-inspired rhythm, and guitar taking the synthesizer parts (albeit with similar delay effects). The lyrics are slightly different, indicating that the place the eagle wants to fly away from is a Native American reservation.
The main guitar hook in the song was first used in a slightly different form on Miller's 1969 track "My Dark Hour" (which featured Paul McCartney)...

his wife, "I invited a friend home for supper."
"What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal!"
"I know all that."

"Because the poor guy is thinking about getting married."
