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

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

#1 I Can’t Tell You Why – Eagles
Released in 1980 on the album The Long Run

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

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.

#10 Love Will Keep Us Alive – Eagles
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.

There’s no more emptiness inside
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive
