A fter hearing this single, I would have said The Eagles were headed for a short flight. When an AMG reviewer wrote that “Witchy Woman” began a “career-long examination of supernaturally evil females,” I remember thinking that was pretty observant, instantly conjuring “Hotel California” in my head. But then I had trouble coming up with another Eagles song about a supernatural, evil female, and wondered if maybe I hadn’t been duped too quickly. Always things to watch out for in the forest. I never liked “Witchy Woman” any more than I liked “Take Me I’m Yours” from Squeeze’s first elpee (which I didn’t), but as with both albums it looks brilliant next to something like “Earlybird.” I wonder if that’s the first Eagles/Squeeze comparison anyone has ever made? Really, I should find something better to do with my time. If you haven’t anything better to do with yours, there’s more on the song “Witchy Woman” at Songfacts.
