Let's Listen To The Eagles

I know what you're thinking. You're like, "Let's not listen to The Eagles, Katie. Because they are dad rock." But you're wrong. So wrong. Their soothing tunes have been available on Spotify for a couple weeks now, and I really hope that y'all are taking advantage of this happy musical occasion. You can listen to The Eagles any time you choose! In 2013!

If you think I'm kidding about The Eagles' greatness, then you should sit down and watch that Eagles documentary that came out a few months ago because then you'd be like, "Oh my god, every song they wrote was a hit! I'm so into them!" And a bonus is that they also had great drama. Like drugs and shit. So don't be afraid to let this groovy soft-rock sweep you off your feet this summer, preferably on a beach somewhere while drinking a Corona Light or a Seagram's Escape. To get you in the mood, here are some of the best Eagles songs you forgot you loved. —Katie


"Take It To The Limit"
They most certainly did take it to the limit with this song. The limit of feelings. Sometimes you just need to take it to the limit one more time, know what I mean?


"Life in the Fast Lane"
This song is so dad-rock that it's kind of turned the corner into being amazing again. Like, "throw-on-some-bellbottoms-and-try-to-play-that-guitar-riff-in-your-dorm-room" amazing.


"Wasted Time"
Maybe you'll see this title and think, "I don't think I know that song." Well you're wrong. Everyone in the world knows every single Eagles song, whether you realize it or not. And this song is a slow-jam classic. Get to brooding, y'all.


"Love Will Keep Us Alive"
Hello! Are you getting married in 1995? Do you need a wedding song? Because I've found it for you. Those harmonies! Hold my hand.


"The Long Run"
What can I say that this painted eagle hand isn't already saying?


"Already Gone"
Have you succumbed to the glory that is The Eagles yet? If so, grab your aviators, fluff out your '70s perm, and pop One Of These Nights into the 8-track player in your Mustang because we are going to take it to the limit one more time, everybody. And no, I don't care that I already used that joke three times. Eagles forever!
