Top 10 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

It's one of the best rock songs ever, to be honest one of the best songs of all time. The songwriting for this song is just genius, and the solo is just awesome. Truly held its own considering it was released in the same decade as masterpieces such as Stairway to Heaven by Zeppelin and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Just a great song!

If I someone told me to select the most representative song of rock, I would select this, and, in the second place, dust in the wind. The lyrics are deep, the guitar is something irreplaceable, when I sing this song I do it with my soul... THIS IS THE MORE powerful CLASSIC OF THE HISTORY OF ROCK

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

Legendary song like Stairway To Heaven can't beat this song (sorry guys), because none anyone can play drum while sing the song perfectly better than Don Henley. Amazing guitar solo and vocal.Anyone must love this song because it is legend

You can checkout anytime you like, but you can't never leave!

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!

I remember taking my girlfriend to Arizona. It was her first trip to The Grand Canyon State. Ironically, we were one our way to Winslow and the song just happened to come on the radio. We sang along "Woo, Oooh, Whoo! "

I like this song more than hotel California. Hotel California is great but is overplayed this song is the best eagles song!

What's so great about hotel California it's long and boring and take it easy just has so much more of an euphoric effect!

3 Desperado Desperado Cover Art

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

That song stirs up so many memories for me. I loved it then and I love it even more now. There is something about it that connects to my soul and the very core of my being. I love all the Eagles songs, but this one is my favorite.

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...

5 One of These Nights One of These Nights Cover Art

It's 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!

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.

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

I love the intro easily my favourite eagle song should be further up the list

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

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.

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.

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!

Loved everything about this song. This song carries a special feel, can't express that in words

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.

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

I love the guitar... The best in rock
And roll... The guitar players are the

Followed my hotel California, followed by heartache tonight!

9 Witchy Woman Witchy Woman Cover Art

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

Talk about a song set right in the pocket of coolness, this is one that you can't pigeon-hole

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

One of their greatest songs ever. Should be higher up

10 Peaceful Easy Feeling Peaceful Easy Feeling Cover Art

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.

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.

The Contenders
11 Already Gone Already Gone Cover Art

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.

Overall excellent song. Why can't they make music like this in the 21st century.

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

Best guitar licks and awesome vocal harmonies.

12 Tequila Sunrise Tequila Sunrise Cover Art

Lying eyes and this rank as my favorites Take another shot of courage, wonder why the right words never come, I get chills listening to it still. perhaps even more now!

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.

Amazing tune from an amazing group. My favorite along with Lyin Eyes New Kid Desperado you get my drift.Take another shot of courage, wonder why the right words never come!

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

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!

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.

This should be higher. Beautiful song.

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

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!

Why is this at 14? Timothy Schmit is the best singer in the Eagles and this is his best song

15 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

Amazing lyrics n trippy music

16 Love Will Keep Us Alive Love Will Keep Us Alive Cover Art

Timothy B. Schmitt is such an underrated singer. I could listen to him all day!

We had the band learn this song for our wedding!

One of most greatest song I have ever heard

This is the most romantic hit of all times...

17 Heartache Tonight Heartache Tonight Cover Art

This is my favorite Eagles song next to Hotel California and Life in the fast lane

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

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

Great song, deserve to be in a higher spot.

18 The Last Resort The Last Resort Cover Art

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

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.

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!

This is brilliant when I listen to it, it takes me back to where I found Love, but today it hurt me so much that couldn't bare to keep.

19 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.

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

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

Best meaningful song. Still more relevant everyday

20 Try and Love Again Try and Love Again Cover Art

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.

Personally my favorite! maybe because it's so personal to me since it reminds me of my family and childhood. but I love the lyrics so much and in general it's a really nice slow song that makes me happy and relaxed

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.

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

21 Good Day in Hell Good Day in Hell Cover Art

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"

22 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.

23 Seven Bridges Road Seven Bridges Road Cover Art

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!

24 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.

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

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

Should be higher

25 Long Road Out of Eden Long Road Out of Eden Cover Art

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
