The Top Ten

1 Hotel California Hotel 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,

Best of the best legendary and historic song

3 Desperado Desperado

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 is so beautiful! This song describes my life in a perfect way.

4 Take It to the Limit Take 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.

Please take five minutes and with this song live 1977 at Capital Center with Randy singing the lead - it is pure vocal perfection and Joe Walsh and the rest of the gang singing back up. This song live at Capital Center is the best Eagles performance ever. Then... Watch it a few years later without Randy in the band. It is bad real bad. While the band was loaded top to bottom with talent, they were better - a lot better with Randy Meisner!

Great song. Should be well inside the top 10

My favoroute eagles song ever, Randy Meisner was very talented

5 One of These Nights One of These Nights

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!

one of there best songs right after hotel california

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

Brilliant song my personal favourite

6 New Kid in Town New 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...

,my favorite song when I was student in Architecture doing my Thesis untill now.

10 Already Gone Already Gone

Best guitar licks and awesome vocal harmonies.

All you need to do is listen to the first 15 seconds and you will know it deserves top 10. After you've heard the rest of the song its hard to say how it isn't in top 5.

But if he's already gone - why do we keep hearing him singing it? - Billyv

My Favorite Eagles Song. Its Amazing!

12 Peaceful Easy Feeling Peaceful 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.

My favorite Eagles' song. The melody and lyrics show you the way on how to be comfortable and content with who you are. If a woman rejects you, she isn't right for you, and it's best to find that out early. Be at peace with yourself and roll with the punches.

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

15 Wasted Time Wasted 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
