The Last Resort

This is a tribute to the Eagles; a band of very talented individuals that has contributed music to multiple genres. They have given me enjoyment for more than 30 years, and My family and I have loved doing covers of their awesome list of hits.

Here is the lyrics of a hit from one of their more recent albums titled "Hell Freezes Over"

I had to create a relevant background to superimpose the lyrics on, and here is what I did:
I composed a scene in Bryce 7.1 Pro of a 747 flying into the Sunset. Then I went searching for an image of the Eagle Skull that is on the cover of some of the Eagles' albums. It had to be just the skull and in color. As I could not find exactly what I needed, I asked for help in the Coffee Shoppe and Gardens thread here at the Fantasies Attic. I got some great suggestions from a few members, for which I am totally grateful; however, it was Dreamer that did something for me with what I posted for her when she asked to see an image of what I was wanting. She did an excellent cut out job of just the skull and uploaded that in .png format. It was a bit small, but I was able to incorporate that by enlarging it so that it looked a bit blurred in MSO PowerPoint which I used to create this composition. I used the image as my first layer in the composition. I then brought the Flying into the Sunset image in over the top of that, and used the transparency controls to fade it until the Eagle Skull showed through at just the right amount. My final layer was the text of the song lyrics and its title at the top, with the credits at the bottom, all center justified. To the right at the bottom is another text part that confirm this as a Tribute to the Eagles, and followed by brief credit to me as the person that composed this piece, and to Dreamer for her contribution.

I have to say this song when it is performed by Don Henley as the lead singer backed up by the other members of the band gets me choked up; especially when done onstage. It is one of my favorite Eagles songs, and I have more that a few.

Great emotional song by the Eagles, definitely one of my faves of theirs. And about twenty others.
