the song has been covered by numerous artists, most notably by the eagles for their 1974 album on the border. in a 1975 interview, waits was critical of the eagles’ cover version of his song, admitting that he was “not that particularly crazy about (their) rendition of it … i thought their version was a little antiseptic.” about one year later, while interviewed for nme, he went as far as stating that “i don’t like the eagles. they’re about as exciting as watching paint dry. their albums are good for keeping the dust off your turntable and that’s about all.”
