Funky New Year by The Eagles

Although The Eagles sound like they've been having a great time here, Funky New Year was actually recorded during the troubled sessions for The Long Road in 1979 and the band broke up in a legendarily acrimonious way a few months after its release. This anthem to the morning after ("My hair hurts...What year is it anyway?") is actually better - and funkier - than many of the tracks that made the album. Thanks to Westcoast Dream Cruiser for tipping us off about this festive rarity. And Happy New Year.
