The Top Ten
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.118 Comments
This song will live forever
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!
Why can't modern country be this good? What happened to this genre? - AlexZoraj
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 - michaelwalton12 Comments
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.
Beautiful song. - Userguy44
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.21 Comments
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
Song with time machine effect. It takes you back to the time when you started listening this song and you can feel that time somewhat. Amazing song.
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!24 Comments
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
And I can feel her but she's nowhere
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.16 Comments
My personal favourite Eagles tune
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.
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!12 Comments
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.
Storytelling in song as good as you can get.
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.17 Comments
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!
Can't stop speeding
Great riff, a raunchy yet sensitive vocal, and a wonderful story that is broad and rings true4 Comments
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.
By far the best!6 Comments
Great guitar work
Great Song with sensational guitar riff...
How this song is not in the top 5 is beyond me.
One of the best groovy songs you jam to on repeat.8 Comments
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...6 Comments
A great log of songs, arguably the best American band ever,I just dig the guitar work
Overall excellent song. Why can't they make music like this in the 21st century.
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 5.6 Comments
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.4 Comments
What a beautiful song!
This is just such a calming tune, great sound and lyrics.
This song is so soothing and melodious. Wonder why its way down here, since I find it much better than Take it Easy, really.
Why is this at 14? Timothy Schmit is the best singer in the Eagles and this is his best song14 Comments
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 Comments
Without a doubt THE BEST EAGLES SONG EVER! One of the top 5 bests songs of all time!
Greatest song of all time!
Their best song off their best album! The storytelling is amazing with a finale that absolutely floors! This is Don Henley at his most brilliant!
Never fails to send a shiver down my spine - great slow-burning anthem with thoughtful lyrics19 Comments
One of the best songs then and now don is the best way underrated
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 everyday4 Comments
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 classic1 Comment
Listen to this! Rank it!
This should be in a higher spot.
A very Soul Touching song. - ravishu0930u0935u0940u0936chaw
I like this song a lot. Should be in a higher spot. - TisonRockit6 Comments
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"
Beautiful song1 Comment
Should be higher up, of course hotel california is a better song, but this song earns some recognition.
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
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
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.
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."
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! - prateekj301 Comment
Best version is the live one from 1974, with the four original Eagles.
How Long did it me take to notice this is a true eagle classic
This song should be lower
Epic song! Starts with a banjo and then transforms into a real good jive. Makes me want to shoot whiskey bottles and rob stagecoaches
Its such a vibrant song! Beautiful lyrics! One of the best acapella's and acoustic songs I have ever heard! :D And the guitar is so melodic. Beautiful song overall.
In this recap, in my humble opinion it's 20 places too low...
Our 2yr old can loves the song and can sing the majority of the song. Not totally clear, but she has it down!
Is this #22? This is by far my favorite song of all time! The rock and roll mixed with pop, funk and vocals make it a true song of the ages! - MatthewtheMagma
They start their concerts off with this one. I like the Eagles Live version with the great sax solo by Phil Kenzie.
I didn't realize I liked so many of there songs, this one is easy to listen to 😎
One of the best songs written by anyone ever. Very moving song and wonderful everything.
This is a lovely wistful song full of longing for days gone by. It has a beautiful guitar break and vocals.
One of the best slow songs I've heard.
Beautiful instrument work, great vocals, awesome lyrics!
Good job done by Henley2 Comments
Vastly underappreciated. Like all the best Eagles songs, it wrings so much emotion, meaning and atmosphere out of relatively straightforward, accessible music. Possibly Henley's most eloquent expression of what we've lost in modern society, and Walsh's greatest solo. A beautiful 10-minute journey, through the soft atmospheric "desert" opening, steadily growing heavier and angrier, dying away again before massing for the incredible third verse, and a hypnotic, lingering end section. The triumphant centrepiece of possibly the greatest comeback album of the 21st century.
One the the Eagles greatest songs! Truly epic, spanning over ten minutes with brilliant lyrics and a powerful guitar solo.
I rate this song to the top of the list. Guitar Solo is best ever.
The most ignored song of eagles
But the best one
Amazing song. One of the coolest tunes out there. Along with peaceful Easy Feeling and Get Over it, their most underrated. Everyone needs to check it out! Great slide guitar."Oh well, It's been a good day in Hell, Tomorrow I'll be glory bound"
Deserves much better ranking than 26, guess people haven't heard this song
Very confused as to why this is not in the top 15...
Must be with Desperado
I love this song! - angelkierb1 Comment
Walsh sings this so beautifully how is it this low?
Great sad song this has to be at least 15th.
This is my favorite Eagles song. And it's not even closer
Hey Yo - RubyTheSwearingParrotFan2019
This song has a classic wicked sound and harmony that really showcases the depth they had. Incredible guitar from two of the best ever.
This deserves to be much higher in this list. This song rocks!
This one is definitely in my top ten. I can't believe it's at number 40 here.2 Comments
That groovy style complemented by the solos. Strange it wasn't already on the list.
The creativity just flows out...
Deserves to be in the top 5 at least.
People really have bad choices on this site!
Number 2 after Bitter Creek
BETTER THAN 27! EAGLES NUMBER ONE FOR EVERY 70es JUNKIE!1 Comment
Love this one!
More country perhaps than most Eagles fans like, but one of my favorites.
Was this Eagles or was this Glenn Frey solo?
Nice song. Glenn Frey s voice is amaising
I'd HIGHLY recommend this song.
Here are my top five
1. On the Boarder
2. Already Gone
3. Take It Easy
4. One of These Nights
5. Hotel California
It's just good.
As much as I love the entire Desperado album I think On the Border is my favorite album and the title song is my favorite. Disapointed that it never gets played.
Oh my gosh... #22. This song changes so many times, great guitar riff, lyrics and vocals. This song is way too low for this list, since it has so much instrumentiation that the others do not have (not dissing the eagles), yet this song is so special. Great album as well.
What an excellent mellow tune.. Should be a top 10 in my opinion. Song really makes you think and ponder about the feelings that faded relationships cause.
Love this song. Though I can't rate it number one my list it most certainly would be in my top 10 Eagles songs. I'm sure a lot of people aren't familiar with it... The only reason why I can imagine it is so far down the list.
The Eagles captured a sense or nostalgic longing for times past. It is a lovely arrangement on their hands.
Would probably rate it higher if the Eagles had written it, but this is actually a Tom Waits song.
A song which can be in top
Can't believe someone didn't added this master piece
I like the message of song
It is the song of earth
Song about the greatest actor of all time
You guys are deaf. Listen to this song...why hasnt anyone voted for this? It has so much meanings...and the song itself is eargasmic. One of the top tens at least. LISTEN AND VOTE.
Really pretty melody and instrumentation. In the same vein as Saturday night.
This song cure depression and gives courage
This sing relaxes me
