Song of the Day: 'I Can't Tell You Why' by the Eagles

My mind is always coming up with lists and ideas for blog posts. So while I work on a big one that's not quite ready yet, another thought came to mind: How many bands have had hits with someone who isn't their normal lead singer? 

"Everything Counts" and "Somebody" by Depeche Mode, "Tempted" by Squeeze and "Stay" (sort of) by Shakespears Sister all come to mind, as does this 1979/80 smash by the Eagles, which was their first single to feature Timothy B. Schmit, who joined the band during the "Hotel California" tour, replacing Randy Meisner on bass/vocals.
