In the City (Joe Walsh)

If you’re a fan of the 1979 movie, “The Warriors“, then you’ll likely know this song. Joe Walsh was a key member for the Eagles back in the late 1970s, and was a major influence on their hugely successful “Hotel California” release in late 1976 (another album with a magical obscure song I’ll discuss in the future). But it was “In the City”, which he wrote and performed specifically for the movie, which I consider a classic, yet relatively obscure song.

The Eagles then re-released the song under their name, in a more polished version, for the “The Long Run” album. But I’ll always consider this the real version. It fit the closing credits of this comic-book style, cult classic movie perfectly.
