The Eagles Lyrics

The Eagles are one of the most well known All-American classic rock bands. There will always be people singing along to an Eagles song when it comes on the radio, no matter how old the song is. That is one of the greatest things about this band. Their music will live on forever.

In 1972, The Eagles came out with their debut self-titled album. This album featured one of their greatest hits, "Take It Easy". The song is a nice easy-going song about just that - taking it easy. The song starts off with playful lyrics about how the singer, Glenn Frey, who co-wrote the song with Jackson Browne, knows seven different women and they all want something different from him. "Four that wanna own me, Two that wanna stone me, One says she's a friend of mine," he sings.

Frey then goes on to sing about the whole purpose of the song. "Take it easy, take it easy. Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy." Perhaps this is why this song is one of those great "car tunes" that are great for popping into your car's stereo while taking a trip somewhere. Take It Easy is a fun song to listen to when you feel that you really do need to just relax and take it easy.

The next year, in 1973, The Eagles released another album that once again, contained a hit that would be known forever. The album was called Desperado and the song that was part of making them so famous was also called "Desperado". This song is not nearly as playful as "Take It Easy" and instead speaks to someone who is extremely lonely and having a really hard time with it.

The song speaks as a kind of warning that "Desperado" must "come to (their) senses." The song also indicated that Desperado only wants things he can't have and this is evident in the lines, "Now it seems to me, some fine things have been laid upon your table, But you only want the ones that you can't get." While the listener starts off feeling sorry for Desperado, by the end of the song, they feel as if Desperado has brought about the situation on himself. And this is not to say that the listener is completely insensitive to the situation. The song ends by declaring that the situation is not as hopeless as it seems but that action must be taken.

In 1976, The Eagles released Hotel California, which of course, held another hit that would be known for all-time. The hit was also called "Hotel California" and there have been many different theories on the meaning behind the Hotel California lyrics to this abstract song. Many believe that the song is about heavy drug use with lines such as, "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device." This seems to indicate that the drug is the device and the individual is a prisoner to it.

Others believe that the song is about Satanic worship. This theory states that the song is about an abandoned Christian church that was soon after used for devil worship. It's rumoured that this happened in 1969 and that the line, "We haven't had that spirit here since 1969," only further confirms this. In an interview with the band, they stated the song is actually about a gang in California. This is cleared up in the last line, "You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave." Whatever one chooses to believe about the lyrics of this song, it will always remain a favorite among fans.
