  • Lyrics
  • Don Henley and Glenn Frey wrote this song for their daughters. Henley said in the Perth Sunday Times: "It took me back to my own childhood and a reminder of how crushing and all-encompassing peer pressure is. These kids are so vulnerable and susceptible to what people think about them. Do other people like them? Are they cool? Do they have the right clothes, the right phone or the right iPod?"
