Updated November 22, 2023 | Author: Matthew Campbell

The Eagles are considered one of the greatest rock bands of all time. We are not the only ones who think so. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

best eagles songs all-time

The Eagles started in 1971 and played together until 1980. The band then decided to take a break. A long break. The hiatus was for fourteen years. The Eagles reformed in 1994 and still play together today.

Their 2014 tour is called The History of the Eagles and played songs from the beginning, through the Hell Freezes Over album and also some of Joe Walsh’s legendary hits.  Glenn Fry passed in January 2016 and the band will never be the same again.

Best Eagles Songs List

I Can’t Tell You Why

Released in 1980 on the album The Long Run

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Cause I love you
Nothing’s wrong as far as I can see
We make it harder than it has to be
And I can’t tell you why

I rank this song not only for its mass popularity but for what it means to the band. Timothy B. Schmit joined the band and the band wanted Timothy to be the lead singer on a song. This is that song that promoted Timothy as an Eagles band member and a music star.

Hotel California

Released in 1977 on the album Hotel California

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face

One of These Nights

Released in 1975 on the album One of These Nights

Lyrics To Inspire You:

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

Desperado

Released in 1973 on the album Eagles

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

The Best of My Love

Released in 1974 on the album On The Border

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Oh, sweet darlin’
You get the best of my love

 

Take It Easy

Released in 1972 on the album Eagles

Lyrics To Inspire You:

We may lose, and we may win
Though we will never be here again
So open up, I’m climbin’ in
To take it easy

Peaceful Easy Feeling

Released in 1972 on the album Eagles

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I get this feelin’ I may know you
As a lover and a friend

Take It To The Limit

Speed on up, take it to the limit
Only live once, live it fast for a minute

Seven Bridges Road

Now I have loved you like a baby
Like some lonesome child
And I have loved you in a tame way
And I have loved you wild

Love Will Keep Us Alive

Released in 1994 on the album Hell Freezes Over

The Eagles had many hits over the decades. This is the newest song but thought it deserved to be on this list as it brought the next generations into the love of Eagles music.

Now I’ve found you
There’s no more emptiness inside
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive
