When you heard "Boys of Summer" for the first time on the radio what were your impressions? Personally I consider that 3 note synth string groove the most brilliant thing I've ever heard in pop music. Doo doo doo doo doo doo... So melodic, so perfectly 80's but at the same time so organic with that twangy guitar and vocals. Henley knew what would sell at the time with the synth groove but kept it organic and made one of the most iconic songs of all time.
