10. The Best of My Love
“I guess that wasn’t enough
Oh, but here in my heart
I give you the best of my love”
“The Best of My Love” was released on November 5, 1974. And the song was co-written by Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and J. D. Souther. Don Henley and Glenn Frey are both founding members of Eagles. After its releasing, the song peaked at No.1 on US Billboard Hot 100, and also topped on the Canada Top Singles chart.
Even though that the song was 43 years old, it’s still attractive. It is one of the sweetest songs in my mind. Beautiful vocals, combined with (bass) guitar, so enjoyable. I have found the live version for you. Come and listen to it. And wish you get the best love.
9．Take It to the Limit
“So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time”
“Take It to the Limit” was released on November 15, 1975. It was also co-written by Eagles’ founding members, including Randy Meisner, Don Henley and Glenn Frey.
And Meisner was the lead vocals of the song. Take It to the Limit ranked at No.4 on both US Billboard Hot 100 and US Adult Contemporary (Billboard).
Some of My friends said that Take It to the Limit mirrored the lives to some extent. Maybe people who are pursuing their dreams always feel the same. I hope that the song can relax you and encourage you to Take It to the Limit one more time when you get tired. Now, enjoy the song.
“Cause I’m already gone
Yes, I’m already gone
And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this vict’ry song”
“Already Gone” was released on April 19, 1974, recorded in the album On the Border. It ranked No.32 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and also peaked at No.12 on Canada Top Singles.
Although it is not that successful in charts performance when compared with Eagles’ other songs, it is undoubtedly classic and popular.
Glenn Frey, a founding member of Eagles, was the lead vocals of the song. He was gone in 2016. Let’s listen to the song together, paying tribe to Glenn Grey. I bet that you will love it.
7. Tequila Sunrise
“It’s another tequila sunrise, this old world
Still looks the same
Another frame, mmm”

Every time I listen to this song, I will imagine that I was living in a place I love, drinking a cup of Tequila Sunrise, maybe waiting for the sunrise or the sunset. It must be wonderful. Why not listen to the song by the eagles and share your feeling with us?
Why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate”

Actually, among all songs of Eagles, Desperado is my favorite one. I heard it by chance in my school time, and it is Desperado that makes me fan of Eagles. Their vocals are always affectionate. And I love the lyrics, saying “it may be raining, but there’s a rainbow above”. Now, enjoy it.

It is a song that can always make people stay in a good mood. I once set it as my getting-up song in the morning. Share the song with you. And I hope this song can make you take it easy, when life makes you stressed out. If you like it, you can also download it for free.

And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lying eyes”

And also, it ranked No.8 on the chart of U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles. Lyin’ Eyes even won Eagles the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Group.
It is soft country rock music, rhythmic but gentle, which makes the whole song and the story impressive. I just can’t help putting it on a loop. Hey, how about enjoying this song together? I have got the live performance video below for you. You will definitely love it.
1. Hotel California
“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face”
Whether you are familiar about Eagles or not, you must have heard the song or heard of its name. If not, it doesn’t matter. I will help you to know about it.

It also ranked No.8 on UK Singles chart. It won Platinum and Gold certifications for its great sales and also won Eagles the Grammy Awards for Record of the Year.
There are many versions of interpretation for the song. You can have your own reading, of course. For me, it is like wine, and as the time go by, its flavor becomes more pleasant. Now, let’s taste a cup of wine called Hotel California together.
As a famous American band, almost all Eagles songs are classic and deserve listening.
