i mean, look at the stupid shows that they take on tv that dedicated itself to STARS and their personal lives.it SUCKS, and their money can't make up for the happiness.anyways..i remember right, this song was written because, i think glenn frey said something about "you'll forget about the eagles, and then you'll get to know some other cool band." how interesting and fickle.
I always thought this song was about a guy who moved away from his small town but came back and is surprised to be treated like some sort of hero for being new.
He becomes popular and wins the heart of the local beauty but he starts to feel trapped so he breaks up with her or cheats on her.
According to the documentary "History of the Eagles" the title of the song came from a late night stop at a Los Angeles diner that Henley, Frey and some other Eagles visited after seeing Bruce Springsteen play a club show.
Frey, at some point, says to the other Eagles "Well, there's a new kid in town".
Can relate to many situations, especially romance and fame."They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along "- great line. athletics, career, but most compelling in romantic relationships. I personally can't really see another meaning from the song-writer point of view...especially since they've all said it themselves.
The absolute hurt and pain when you see the girl you thought was absolutely infatuated with you now showing the same affection to another guy, The New Kid in Town. I do find it interesting that many have adapted different interpretations, that's what art is all about.
One possibility is the Roman belief in the Vena amoris, which was believed to be a blood vessel that ran from the fourth finger (ring finger) directly to the heart.
Thus, when a couple wore rings on this finger, their hearts were connected.
Eventually he gets thought of as just another person who no longer is put in the limelight, and gets easily replaced I love this song because I WAS "the new kid in town" when I moved to Lancaster Co., PA from Baltimore when this song was released.
