Best Eagles Songs

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

I don't trust people who don't love this 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 a great tune to listen to

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

Great song to sing and dance to.

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.

Desperado, it is my first Eagles' song that I heard, and Don Henley take this with soul and emotions

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...

This is one of my all time favorite songs. I love The Eagles!

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...

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!

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

It is the best song ever to grace the earth

They'll never forget you till somebody new comes along

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!

A great song from 1975. I love listening to

There #2 song, hotel California being there best

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.

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

One of my favorite

13Tequila Sunrise

I love Tequila Sunrise it is just a legendary song and should really be in the top ten.

Fantastic a perfect combination of music and lyric! Best song from the eagles playlist a must have!

This, Desperado and Love will Keep us Alive make up the top 3 best songs by them man...

This song make me feel so be a man

15I Can't Tell You Why

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.

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!

This song is way under rated.

16How Long

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

17Get Over It

This song is amazing. If I hear it during the day all I can do the rest of the day is listen to this song. I could have it on an all day loop and never get bored. It is an insanely fun song and if you know the words you will find yourself singing along to it.

Are you kidding me not having this song in the top ten? It is an awesome message with an amazing musical rhythm with it. This is one of the Eagles best songs.

This isn't actually my favorite, but it is one of them and it deserves a higher spot.

18Wasted 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
