just the right song for right now
First heard this song in my 20s and at 60 now I still am feeling it
Freedom that's just some people talking..
when I was a young 20 something this was my personal life song - life lesson you better let somebody love you before its to late
...Desperado is a well characterize d song. It is as if I was introduced to a man called, "Desperado".
Anybody who doesn't like this song?
Desparado now describes who i have become. Good song!
Can't express how much I love this song
deamnott
Saved my life....
Before I new of this song or The Eagles
I love any song they ever had!!
Slow pace, cryptic yet soul bearing lyrics, Henley voice, attention grabbing song by the Eagles
Like Desperados Waiting for a Train....Whe n it rains it pours
Think this was the first song Henley and Frey wrote together. Desperado is classic music!
This is one of my top ten all favorite songs. Probably because I'm a desperado and outlier.
Me and my aunt love this song!

For those that can relate to this song, it's a clear warning.
very sad song
some fine things have been laid on your table, but you only want the ones you can't get. no one could say it better! This song is my soul anthem.
Perhaps my fave Eagles song...
PCD SAYS; in PCD's most humble opinion this is without a doubt the best song THE EAGLES ever recorded,jus t sayin.and JOE WALSH ruined this band,just sayin.so says PCD. =)
What a great song this is.
Just for you baby !
This song is haunting and stays with you for a very long time.
Avocado, what makes you so holy? You're just guacamole.
Whenever I need to go for a drive to clear my head and do some serious thinking, this is the song I pop on.
this i an excellelent song when you are depressed and need a pick-me-uppe r song with meaning
Stonecutter, LMAO...I only ever watched the Seinfeld shows once through, never had any desire for multiple viewings, but I still remember the episode with Desperado/Wi t c h y Woman. Classic episode, even more classic song.

Good tune, but they have better, imo.
One of the best classic songs ever
stevef1112

Screaming "Desperado" during the Eagles concert last May in Portland- priceless. Was the last song they played that night

I'll never be able to say enough about the Eagle's but I went to California for 5months because of them. I listened to their music the entire ride...among s t some other greats. I've seen the Eagles in concert and they were awesome, I cannot say that about many bands.
Take it to the limit! I love you!
