Best Eagles Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Hotel California Hotel California Cover Art

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

Every person has a different story associated with this song...This is not an ordinary song guys. There must be some alien connection related to this song. This song really impacted everyone like a wave over the last 30 years.

2 Take It Easy Take It Easy Cover Art

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

This a great tune to listen to

Why can't modern country be this good? What happened to this genre?

3 Desperado Desperado Cover Art

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 was my grandmas favorite song, and any time it plays it brings my mom to tears. It by far the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard and it breaks me every time.

4 Take It to the Limit Take It to the Limit Cover Art

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.

Just a beautiful song. It's a shame this led to Meisner leaving because he had quite the voice. My favourite Eagles song, although Hotel California definitely deserves number 1

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

5 One of These Nights One of These Nights Cover Art

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.

Best eagles song, can listen to it all day. This, Witchy Woman, and Already Gone are definitely underrated here. But then again, the Eagles had so many great songs its hard to choose.

6 New Kid in Town New Kid in Town Cover Art

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.

This is just a slow building classic...and unconventional in its structure. I'm always amazed how in hell they thought of putting this particular music together to fit the narrative of the lyrics. I'm not a big fan of the eagles but this and Peaceful are up there.

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...

7 Lyin' Eyes Lyin' Eyes Cover Art

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..

Hotel California is a great classic song. But I've heard it too many times. This song is just a nice peaceful song. It's a great one to listen to. It has been my favourite since I first heard it.

8 Life in the Fast Lane Life in the Fast Lane Cover Art

Awesome guitar riff and slide guitar by Joe Walsh and Don Felder as well as great vocals by Don Henley in this AMAZING song.

Followed my hotel California, followed by heartache tonight!

Great riff, a raunchy yet sensitive vocal, and a wonderful story that is broad and rings true

Love this song so much. Should be top 5

9 Peaceful Easy Feeling Peaceful Easy Feeling Cover Art

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.

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

10 Witchy Woman Witchy Woman Cover Art

How this song is not in the top 5 is beyond me.

One of the best groovy songs you jam to on repeat.

This song is so Groovy its Crazy Just talking about it makes me want to sing Woo Hoo Witchy Woman

Loved it when Don Felder dedicated this to Tiger Woods at Orange Beach.

The Contenders

11 Tequila Sunrise Tequila Sunrise Cover Art

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!

First Eagles song that grabbed my thinking as to the layers of their lyrics and meanings. They are my favorite band of back in the day.

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

12 Already Gone Already Gone Cover Art

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.

A great log of songs, arguably the best American band ever,I just dig the guitar work

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

13 The Best of My Love The Best of My Love Cover Art

Best ever! Awesome lyrics... Beautiful guitar sounds... And his voice is just awesome! I love it. Can't stop playing it again and again!

Its one of the best songs in the Soft Rock genre! The acoustic guitar is too good! Amazing chord-work! :-)

I've seen this song in top tens in other Eagles' lists, surprised it's not higher here

Not my favorite, but it deserves higher than this so I'm voting for it.

14 I Can't Tell You Why I Can't Tell You Why Cover Art

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

15 Love Will Keep Us Alive Love Will Keep Us Alive Cover Art

this song soothes my anxious mind

My favorite, all time song!

I adore this songs its my real favorite

My favorite song, one of the best songs...

16 The Last Resort The Last Resort Cover Art

Without a doubt THE BEST EAGLES SONG EVER! One of the top 5 bests songs of all time!

Never fails to send a shiver down my spine - great slow-burning anthem with thoughtful lyrics

Easily the best Eagles song. Powerful lyrics and soothing tune, One of my all time favorites. I'm sure anyone familiar with the eagles will agree with me.

Hotel California is one of the best songs ever made and is the best eagles song ever. However, I do believe the last resort is a way underrated song. Its great when you're in the mood

17 Heartache Tonight Heartache Tonight Cover Art

This should be in a higher spot.

A very Soul Touching song.

I like this song a lot. Should be in a higher spot.

Hotel California is best, but this should be in the top ten.

18 Wasted Time Wasted Time Cover Art

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.

One of the best songs then and now don is the best way underrated

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

Best meaningful song. Still more relevant everyday

19 Try and Love Again

I agree this song is one of their best. I guess because Randy was on his way out of the band it wasn't promoted like it should have been.

There's no way this should be rated so low. It's an excellent track but it's from the incredible Hotel California album, so I guess that's why it gets overlooked, unlike lesser tunes from lesser albums.

What? Number 35? This is not the best song by The Eagles but it surely deserves to be in Top 10!

Easily in their top 5. A classic

20 After the Thrill Is Gone After the Thrill Is Gone Cover Art

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

Beautiful song

21 Victim of Love Victim of Love Cover Art

Joe Walsh's finest performance with the Eagles. I don't even particularly like the band but this is great stuff, no way not in the top ten. For some reason it isn't as popular as syrupy Best-of-My-Love stuff, their loss.

I love this song and all the songs above and under this one. Eagles is great

Should be higher up, of course hotel california is a better song, but this song earns some recognition.

Should be higher

22 In the City In the City Cover Art

Hands down Awesome Song to blast in the car

As a Joe Walsh fan, it's almost impossible to not like this song.

How can you not love this song

Wariros come out to playyy

23 My Man My Man Cover Art

This is a beautifully written and sung tribute to Gram Parsons, backed by those gorgeous harmonies this band us known for. Unfortunately it gets little attention.

24 Waiting in the Weeds Waiting in the Weeds Cover Art

Extremely powerful song with lyrics you can put in a dozen different situations of life if you think about it. Slightly long but it's end is awesome "answering the tune of the tide's eternal tune, phases of the moon, chambers of the heart, the egg the dart, a small grey spider spinning in the dark despite all the time the web is torn apart."

Terrific!
That's the thing I can say
It's a very big shame that people prefer to listen to these new singers. They just regard to their clips and try to attract youth by making their clips like a porn

Most powerful eagles lyrics I think... Always touches my heart..
Last part is my sleeping pill...

This is their BEST SONG for me! The 2 minute musical plus vocal ending that this song has just takes me to some other heavenly place! <3 Absolutely love it!

25 How Long How Long Cover Art

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

Best version is the live one from 1974, with the four original Eagles.

This song should be lower
