The Eagles song list curated by Matthew Campbell

10. Love Will Keep Us Alive – Eagles
Released in 1994
On 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.

When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive

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

We rank this song not only for the 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.
