This is gonna be harder than the other - the reason I picked Glenn as my favorite is because as I listened to Eagles songs, I realized I liked pretty much everything he sang lead on. There are only two that I cannot stand, both of which are shared with Don and are on the Long Run. Otherwise, I enjoy every one of his vocals. Below, however, are the VERY faves - although I was waffling on a few! So hard to pick!

Here we go, in order of release:

1. Take it Easy

2. Peaceful Easy Feeling

3. Out of Control

4. Tequila Sunrise

5. Outlaw Man

6. Ol' 55

7. Already Gone

8. New Kid in Town

9. Heartache Tonight

10. Seven Bridges Road

Tearing myself away from the avatar for a moment...

I see I didn't put No More Cloudy Days on mine. It definitely deserves a place in the top ten. It's so heartfelt and sincere-sounding. I love it.

4. Heartache Tonight
5. Ol' 55

OK...can I post my top ten more than once? I just can't pick only ten. :help: I couldn't do that in the other thread with him not singing lead so there's no way I could do this one. I've been having a hard enough time with the survivor game and that limits the number of songs I have to pick from. :laugh:

Glennsallnighter
03-20-2007, 08:16 PM
Well for the record, here's my top ten also

1. Peaceful Easy Feeling
2. Lying Eyes
3. Already Gone
4. No more Cloudy Days
5. New Kid in Town
6. The Girl from Yesterday
7. Take it to the Limit (aka the credit card song)
8. Take it Easy
9. Tequila Sunrise
10. After the Thrill is Gone.

Also coming in for honourable mention is Desperado from his Live in Dublin gig but I wasn't sure if I could count it, as it wasn't an actual Eagle's gig.

Freypower

His version of Desperado deserves an honourable mention any time without actually putting it in the list.

Yup. He really does justice to it. :wink:

Oh gosh - it's a great idea to revive this thread Koala, especially since this discussion was done prior to the release of Long Road Out of Eden. I have to go out and run some errands, but I'm definitely going to have to revise my list to include a few songs from LROOE when I have more time. I think it would also be a good idea to start a similar thread for Don in his forum.

Oh my - so much Eagles, so little time. :thumbsup:

This thread has been revived more than once, so don't worry about it, Koala! And sometimes it's nice to "take a walk down memory lane," so to speak. As Dreamer says, now that LROOE has been released, I think I will revise my list a bit when I have a chance (about to head out).

Freypower

I will keep it to ten this time.

1. New Kid In Town

2. Heartache Tonight

3. Lyin' Eyes

4. No More Cloudy Days

5. Tequila Sunrise

6. Peaceful Easy Feeling

7. Take It Easy

8. Good Day In Hell

9. Ol '55

10. Out Of Control

Outlaw Man (tie)

And an honourable mention for Doolin-Dalton.

Wow! I didn't have a signature back in those days!

I love all Glenn's lead vocals on LROOE so much that it would be hard leaving any of them out. Anyway:

1. New Kid In Town
2. Heartache Tonight
3. Lyin' Eyes
4. No More Cloudy Days
5. Tequila Sunrise
6. I Love To Watch A Woman Dance
7. Take It Easy
8. Somebody
9. What Do I Do With My Heart
10. Outlaw Man

I didn't want to leave out It's Your World Now or You Are Not Alone. They are beautifully sung. It is so great to have this stuff. What a shame he is only doing How Long and (occasionally) Somebody live.

08-27-2009, 07:22 PM
Okay, I also had to include several of the LROOE songs. I had to leave off some real gems, of course, and even then it was impossible to keep my list to ten songs. I really did try hard to keep it to ten, but here's the best that I could do:

1. Heartache Tonight

2. Peaceful Easy Feeling

3. New Kid In Town

4. What Do I Do With My Heart

5. Somebody

6. Lyin' Eyes

7. How Long

8. Already Gone

9. Take It Easy

10. Tequila Sunrise

11. After the Thrill Is Gone

12. I Love To Watch a Woman Dance

13. You Are Not Alone

Thanks. How many funny Eagles songs are there? Even thought it's Don's part that really gets me, I had to put it on here

"Get You In the Mood" - now there's one that doesn't make too many lists! I wonder if they'd ever include it in a re-release like Fleetwood Mac did with Silver Springs on the Rumours re-release.

Freypower
10-16-2009, 05:16 PM
I notice four of SS's list are duets with Don!

I love Get You In The Mood. It isn't the most lyrically advanced song ('I need you baby/you drive me crazy' and 'last girl I hit on wasn't very pretty') but he sings it with such an ache in his voice. :inlove:

Scarlet Sun

I would not personally bet on this

Now that you mention it, I count five . . .

Speaking of Doolin-Dalton, ever since the first time I heard that song, I always thought they should have arranged the bridge the same way they would with On The Border, what with each member singing a line. I'll bet they considered it before deciding that Glenn would sing the whole thing. In my mind's ear it would sound something like this:

Don: well the towns laid out across the dusty plains

Bernie: like graveyards filled with tombstones waiting for the names

Randy: and a man could use his back or use his brains

Glenn: but some just went stir-crazy lord, 'cause nothing ever changed

Freypower

I see what you're saying but this verse is telling a story, which the individual lines in On The Border are not - the four singers are just 'making comments'. I see it as a verse, not a bridge (in my opinion this song has no bridge), and I think it would have detracted from the story to have four different people singing it. I am biased of course, as this is my favourite part of the song.
