Did You Know: “Boys Of Summer” By Don Henley
Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Boys Of Summer” by Eagles member Don Henley. It came out in 1985.
The song is about looking back on past relationships and wanting your ex back – wanting to return to what you had.
Don Henley told NME that he really did see a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac. He said: “I was driving down the 405 and got passed by a $21,000 Cadillac Seville, the status symbol of the upper-middle-class American Bourgeoise – all the guys with blue blazers and grey pants – and there was this Grateful Dead ‘Deadhead’ bumper sticker on it!”
The title comes from a baseball book by Roger Kahn called “Boys Of Summer.” The book is about The Brooklyn Dodgers, who broke the hearts of their fans when they moved to Los Angeles.
