Here's another one of my favorite songs by the legendary country-rock band Poco. Yes, their "big hit" will show up, but for now I'm going with one of their signature songs. #8: Rose of Cimarron This song is probably the best explanation as to (a) why the Eagles picked Timothy Schmit to replace Randy Meisner in the Eagles, and (b) why Poco is so, so, so much better than the Eagles. What a happy feeling to this song! And this song would be on the list if the only thing in the song was Schmit's closing lines: "hearts like yours belong following the dawn, wrapped up in a song, Rose of Cimarron." This song, the title song from their 1976 album, remains one of their "go-to" songs. In fact, when Poco (the "classic" Poco lineup) was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2015, this is one of the songs they performed at the induction ceremony.

Definitely a country rock feel here. I didn't realize Jim Messina was a founding member.
