Partial lyrics from the song "get over it." The rest of the lyrics are just as bad.

I heard the song this morning and nearly threw the radio.

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
Complain about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

Again: Fk U Don Henley !!!!

In our MS Peer Support group yesterday we were discussing this very issue, how irritating and frustrating it is when people respond with the "just get over it" reaction. I think its very telling about the kind of person using that response, a very callous and self absorbed type. Either that or he is just plain ignorant. I wonder if he wrote the song himself or just recorded it. Either way, things like this just promote shame in people who want to reach out for help.
Thanks for this contribution to humanity, Don!

Actually I like the Eagles. Even like this song tho the lyrics get a bit angering. It's got a great beat so I ignore the lyrics! laugh I'm gonna keep my inner child as far from him as possible though, thanks.

Actually I bought the Don Henley album with "The Boys Of Summer" on it because BBC TV kept using that song for Formula 1 Motor Racing coverage.

Still, no reason to ever buy his records again...

Like John I like the eagles and have since the 70's.
The best American Band ever!! Their music speaks for itself.
Would love to see them in concert if it didn't cost so much.
So they are rich arrogant a--holes at times we all have our faults. We are all entitled to our own opinions even if it shows how ignorant we can be.
Remember that they are only a couple of guys who have alot of musical talent and no more.

Think I'll go check into my favorite hotel. Hotel Califnoria!!
Because I tired of living in the Fast Lane.

His song "How Bad Do You Want It" doesn't offer much better. It seems to taunt the abused, but I could be reading it wrong.

Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...

Sounds like words that might be said by an abuser

If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck . . .

Sorry if this offends anybody.

are those the lyrics of a survivor in denial ???

My family "tradition" is to "put it in the past"...

or said differently; pretend it didn't happen and smile smile smile...

resent manipulate and shame were constant companions of the stuffing of emotions.

hugs, Wes

Happy to be a recovering survivor. :-)
