I know I’ve written about the legendary Eagles band not too long ago on my old site. However, while listening to some internet radio, I heard more amazing classics by them, which inspired me to share more of their legendary music. The first time, I’ve written about their hit song (#4 in position) “Take It To The Limit.” Now, I’d like to introduce to you some of their number ones.
The Eagles Is One Of The Most Beloved Bands In America
I think it’s safe to go ahead and say that The Eagles is one of the most beloved bands in America (at least when it comes to classic rock/country). They too, are one of the very few groups where their music has transcended generations and genres. Good music is just good music; these are the kinds of artists that become immortalized.
If you’re a young person who digs classic rock bands, I highly recommend that you check out The Eagle’s music. Out of 21 songs that were popular enough to make it on the charts; 5 of them were #1, a #2 song, and 9 other top 10 hits during their career. They formed in the early 1970s, and the original members were Glenn Fry, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. The group amassed 6 Grammy Awards, 5 American Music Awards, and 6 number one albums. The Eagles meant serious business!!
Hotel California Was My Jam!
It’s difficult to say which is my most favorite song. However, If I were forced to pick one; I’d have to say “Hotel California (1977).” I think this was their second number one song. Man, it seemed like every single artist that new how to sing, or play an instrument did a cover of this song! It was like….. You know how you make the decision to learn how to play an instrument, and there’s always that one “easy” go to melody? That’s what it was like listening to soooooo many different renditions of this song. 😂 I have to say, the only rendition that was worth my ears, was from a group called the Gypsy Kings. They perform mostly flamenco and salsa music.
Also, in my opinion, The Eagles has produced some of the most romantic soft rock songs I’ve ever heard. A good example is “Best Of My Love (1975),” which by the way also hit #1 on the Top 100 Charts. How about their song called “Heartache Tonight (1979)?” Did mention that was a number one too? Goodness!! Too many great songs. However, I want to end with one of my very favorites. The following song peaked at #8, and it’s called “I Can’t Tell You Why (1980).” I think this is such a beautiful song. Even if there were no lyrics, I think the background composition still would have became a hit! There’s only one other song I felt like that, and that’s Carole King’s “So Far Away (1971).”
