Rolling Stone: Eagles Greatest Songs (2016)

Postby Daniel » Mon Jun 13, 2016 11:32 pm

Not sure if anyone has a copy, but I noticed that Rolling Stone magazine has a special collector's edition of the Eagles, which includes a ranked list of their greatest songs. Not surprisingly, "Hotel California" was #1. Sorry I didn't pick up a copy.

Pretty much the only Eagles song that matters. :whistle:

While I wouldn't quite go that far, it is a little ridiculous to have a top 50 (I think) list of Eagles songs. When it gets to the point where you're trying to decide where to rank "The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks," maybe it's time to realize that not every artist merits a list like this.

This is a strictly Eagles list, or does it also include solo tracks from Don Henley, Glenn Frey, etc.? The Eagles had seven studio albums (plus then-new tracks via other albums). But, if just the Eagles, you can have a top 50 list and have at least 20 tracks left over. :P

If I remember correctly, the list ranked the top 50 songs by the Eagles as a group, and had a separate, unranked section of the 10 best solo songs, which included "Boys of Summer," "Life's Been Good," "Rocky Mountain Way," and I think just one Glenn Frey song.

I haven't seen the edition, but it looks like it's a 40 Greatest Songs list:

Thanks vert much, Sam!
With the exception of "Already Gone", it is what I expected the Eagles' top 15 songs would be.
