    Default Favourite Glenn Frey Songs

    Didn't see a posting for this topic, so I thought I would go and create one myself. All of us have our own favourite Glenn songs, and it would be interesting to see what some of the consensus on here is regarding his best songs. Here's my own personal opinions...

    Solo:

    1. You Belong to the City
    2. The Heat is On
    3. Smuggler's Blues
    4. Strange Weather
    5. Wild Mountain Thyme

    Within the Eagles:

    1. Tequila Sunrise
    2. New Kid in Town
    3. Already Gone
    4. Heartache Tonight
    5. Peaceful, Easy Feeling
    All carrot, no stick.

    "He's just another power junkie, just another silk scarf monkey. You'd know it if you saw his stuff. The man just isn't big enough."--Glenn Frey/Don Henley

    "You think you know me, but you haven't got a clue."--John Lennon/Paul McCartney

    I could have sworn we had an old topic on this. For me there are too many but I will try:

    Eagles:

    New Kid In Town
    Lyin' Eyes
    Tequila Sunrise
    Heartache Tonight
    Take It Easy

    This is a very conservative list which doesn't include the songs from LROOE which I love, because I wasn't sure which to choose, though the 'eerly prescient' (to quote Don Henley) It's Your World Now would be up there.

    Solo:

    Part Of Me, Part Of You
    Smuggler's Blues
    River Of Dreams
    You Belong To The City
    After Hours

    I adore WMT. However I wouldn't list it in the top 5, though it would be close.

    Surely I can't be the only one who adores "True Love"!

    I didn't know Glenn covered "Wild Mountain Thyme"; must check that out.

    Glenn has expressed a reluctance to pick out favourites from his solo career but on other occasions he's named The One You Love, Smugglers Blues and the aforementioned True Love. Wild Mountain Thyme is definitely one of my favourites.

    solo:

    Wild Mountain Thyme
    Lovers Moon
    After Hours
    River Of Dreams
    The Heat Is On

    Eagles:

    Outlaw Man
    New Kid In Town
    Heartache Tonight
    You Are Not Alone
    It's Your World Now

    I love King Of Hollywood too but I suppose that would only qualify for a 'dual or group lead vocal' catagory

    There's was another one about Glenn's best vocal, but it doesn't seem to be quite the same topic. For those who posted back then, it would be interesting to see if the list has changed.

    True Love is one of my favourites. So is WMT.
