Best Eagles Songs
« on: April 16, 2019, 09:39:03 AM »
The wife and I were listening to "The Very Best of Eagles" (where I pulled this track list from) recently and discussing our favorites. What say you?

My picks: One of These Nights, Wasted Time, I Can't Tell You Why



As a sidenote, it struck us how many of these songs indicate a fear/mistrust of women.

Agree about "I Can't Tell You Why", which balances my more shallow, catchy picks of "Life in the Fast Lane" and "Heartache Tonight". Perhaps not their creative best, but the ones I'm most likely to pull up on my music mix.

I think I agree with The Dude



Especially when it comes to Desperado. There are a lot of great female Singers in Asia that record some high audio quality albums, so many times I go into hifi shops and have to listen to somebody else demoing something like this

Hotel California
Desperado
These Shoes


I was raised on the Eagles.  When I was growing up they were everywhere and they are the soundtrack of my childhood. 

I can remember the summer of 79 and me and some friends were so excited about the new release from the Eagles.  It was Heartache Tonight, before the full album was released, but we turned it as high as it could go and drank it in.  Now it is the one song that will always, without exception, cheer up my daughter. 

I have never understood why the Eagles are so popular.  Joe Cocker is great, but otherwise their music is mediocre.  But they were the right group at the right time and I love them so much.  My wife and I just spent today singing a bunch of their songs, and it made us so happy.  I don't know why, I don't care, but I am glad they have been a part of my life.

Apart from New Kid In Town, which I have a tremendously soft spot for, I pretty much agree with The Dude on this one.
