Jerrico_Usher, lol, The Eagles are a great collection. The Eagles had 6 number one albums, I'm not certain as to how many albums they released, will have to research that one. I love many of the old bands, but The Eagles are a favorite as my writers heart loves the lyrics. They wrote some amazing songs. The Eagles are Timeless. I really like the song busy being fabulous, one of their recent songs. I'm off to see if I can get my hands on the video to include on this tribute.

Jerrico_Usher on 07/28/2012

Jerrico_Usher, The Eagles are a great band to listen to and be inspired by, glad to remind you about the Eagles, I think I'll listen to them now myself.

Jerrico_Usher on 07/28/2012

You do realize that you've forced me to download the eagles entire discography and for the next 7 days or so I'll be listening to eagles non stop as I work :)

I love the eagles music, it's kick back and relaxing with an energy component. A dopamine fix with every one of their chart toppers :) thanks for bringing the eagles to the surface again, I was looking for a new band to listen to... I've probably heard 30 of their 93 songs...

Kim, I agree when I put this list together I was amazed as to how many songs they have performed and recorded. An amazing career.

Kim on 07/19/2012

I had no idea the eagles had such an extensive play list. I will be checking them out on iTunes.

BrendaReeves on 07/18/2012

I do the same thing. I take my laptop on vacation with me. I'd probably have withdrawals if I didn't.
