‘Smugglers Blues’ by Glenn Frey – Classic Hit or Miss

After the Eagles disbanded, Frey found solo success in the 1980s, especially with two No. 2 hits: the soundtrack songs “The Heat Is On” (from Beverly Hills Cop) and “You Belong to the City” (from the television series Miami Vice, the soundtrack of which stayed on top of the U.S. album charts for 11 weeks in 1985). His other contribution to the soundtrack, “Smuggler’s Blues”, hit No. 12 on the Hot 100. Frey also contributed the song “Flip City” to the Ghostbusters II soundtrack, and “Part of Me, Part of You” to the soundtrack for Thelma and Louise. He released his first solo album in 20 years, After Hours, featuring covers of pop standards from the 1940s-1960s, on May 8, 2012.

During his solo career he had 12 songs in the U.S. Top 100. Eleven of those were written with Jack Tempchin who also wrote “Peaceful Easy Feeling”.

This song peaked at #12 with it’s Miami Vice Tie In – how about today?
