Best songs by the Eagles - one of the finest rock bands ever.

The Top TenXW

1Hotel California

One of the greatest songs of all time with a fantastic and trademark guitar solo

This was the song I selected for my 1st live performance! And I will always remember it that way. It's rythm is historic and I sure hope it will be remembered as a classic! Show's the amazing power of the acoustic guitars!

This song made me love English numbers
I love this song very much,
I love eagles... What a guitar.. I get overwhelmed after

Very nice song!

2Take It Easy

I put this song on whenever I need to sing my bean off. Just when you think it can't get any better the banjo kicks in and you dribble down your leg... Ahh!

This song is awesome I always sing to this song because I know every word to it to me this the eagles best songs but you know they have many many more hits that I like but this one is just my favorite - michaelwalton

Now a song that is symbol of country songs. Also, I always listen to this song when I feel depressed. Take it easy.

Country music beautiful done.

One of the greatest songs and guitar solos ever! This song is a masterpiece and should be up there with Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody as the best rock song ever.

The best classic rock song. It is unique; one the singing starts, it doesn't stop, the drums don't begin until halfway through, there is no guitar solo. Everything is perfect about this song, from the amazing musicianship to the singing to the gradual build, not to mention some of the greatest lyrics ever. In this case, less is most certainly more, so despite the lack of crazy wailing guitar solos and showy drumming, this song is profoundly beautiful and melodic. This should be first on the list, not because the others are bad but because this song is truly a masterpiece.

Best song ever. There is nothing else that I could possibly say about this song. I heard it in my dad's car on the way home from my basketball practice and immediately fell in love with it. GO EAGLES.

This song has "eagles" signature with Doolin-Dalton

4Take It to the Limit

The Eagles had probably the most talented ensemble of musicians of any band... ever. It's a cryin' shame they couldn't have stopped fighting among themselves to have realized their full potential. Henley and Frey were known as the vocalists of the group, but Randy Meisner was actually the most talented. His shyness of the spotlight, lack of self-confidence and anxiety issues prevented him from "soaring like an eagle." Talent wise, he could've been one of the greats of all time. Regardless, he gave us this song, truly one of the all time greats.

Great song. Should be well inside the top 10

This by far is the best song of the Eagles - live this was a crowd pleaser and used to close many a concert - can bring chills as Randy hits the high notes - any singer would love to have Randy's vocal range and strength...

Love this song!

5New Kid In Town

New Kid In Town is my favorite Eagles song and Glenn Frey was my favorite Eagle. There has never been a band in history or ever will be with such perfect harmonies and such great songs. I am so glad I lived in the 70's and got to see them in concert. RIP Glenn. The world has lost a tremendous musician.

I'd have lyin' eyes if I said this isn't the best song ever...I can't tell you why but whenever I listen to this song I can take it easy because' I get a peaceful easy feeling...Great Song!

Does anyone else find her/himself in these lyrics? I don't mean literally but just that feeling when you love someone and you're losing her/him... And there's not much you can do...

Best lyrics of a eagles song, tells an awesome story and probably ranks top 25 for all songs on a basis of the story it tells.

6Lyin' Eyes

This song totally deserves to be in the top 5 at lest! It is a classic! The melody is wonderful, beautiful vocals, and the lyrics are.. Well just breathtaking!

Fabulous melody with beautiful vocal harmonies, the usual well crafted lyrics makes this a timeless classic sounding as good now as it did when it was written.

Awesome song! My personal favourite..

Frey s voice vibrates in all cells. He has an angel voice.

7One of These Nights

one of there best songs right after hotel california

Its a simply amazing song, my favorite lyric is I've been searching for the daughter
Of the devil himself
I've been searching for an angel in white
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little
Of both
And I can feel her but she's nowhere
In sight
Love it!

Really atmospheric piece of music with multi layered harmonies and powerful guitar creating a sombre mood.

There #2 song, hotel California being there best

Love this song so much. Should be top 5

12Peaceful Easy Feeling

Not very famous, but it's a hidden beauty. Music is slow and calming, and the lyrics are really meaningful. Found it to be even better than Hotel California. A must-hear for all rock lovers.

Everybody loves this song. I play guitar at a restaurant where I live and if it looks like I'm starting to lose the crowd, I play this and they come right back.

This is one of the most beautiful songs I know. The harmonies are wonderful. Possibly the most underrated song of all time.

My favorite Eagles song. It's like your in the same locations he sings about. You feel like your in the song...

15I Can't Tell You Why

This song is so soothing and melodious. Wonder why its way down here, since I find it much better than Take it Easy, really.

This song makes me nostalgic, a very unique melody and great lyrics!

Such a soothing song. Perfect for relaxing and chilling out.
I wonder why this isn't in the top ten. Guitar riff is good too. Amazing vocals.

I love this song and Tim s voice

16After the Thrill Is Gone

This song still sounds really poignant and has a beautiful tune with heartfelt lyrics. I loved it when I first heard it and continue to appreciate it as a beautiful song.

So weird such a great song is so low. But again they had so many great songs.

Great tune and lyrics...
"empty pages and a frozen pen"
Great words

17How Long

How Long did it me take to notice this is a true eagle classic

18My Man
19Wasted Time

In my opinion this is one of the best songs of all times. The exquisite interpretation of Don with continuous changes in the modulation of his voice to express his inner feelings became this song in a master piece. Lyrics and music are a dramatic cocktail of deep feelings that will impact to any music lover.

Don does a fabulous job singing this song. Definitely deserves to be higher on the list.

Best meaningful song. Still more relevant everyday

Vocals are amazing...
