The Eagles

The Eagles are an American rock band, popular in the 1970s. They helped to create the Southern California country rock sound. Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. After 28 years of no Eagles, they reunited to release a new album in 2007, Long Road Out of Eden.

Their first single was, "Take It Easy," written by Glenn Frey and his fellow country-folk rocker, Jackson Browne. The song reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was followed by the bluesy "Witchy Woman" and the soft country rock ballad "Peaceful Easy Feeling." Don Henley and Glenn Frey began writing some of the Eagles' most popular songs: "Tequila Sunrise" "Desperado," "Twenty-One," "Doolin' Dalton" and the ballad "Saturday Night. The album, On the Border, moved away from their country music style towards hard rock. The song "Best of My Love," became a hit in March 1975.

Already Gone

Best of My Love


Lyrics of Already Gone 1974

Well, I heard some people talking just the other day
And they said you were Gonna put me on a shelf
But let me tell you I got some news for you
And you'll soon find out it's true
And then you'll have to Eat your lunch all by yourself

Cause I'm already gone And I'm feeling strong
I will sing this victory song
Woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo

The letter that you wrote me Made me stop and wonder why
But I guess you felt like You had to set things right
Just remember this, my girl When you look up in the sky
You can see the stars And still not see the light
That's right

And I'm already gone And I'm feeling strong I will sing this victory song
Woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo

Well, I know it wasn't you Who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn't you Who set me free
So often times it happens That we live our lives in chains
And we never even know We have the key

But me, I'm already gone And I'm feeling strong
I will sing this victory song Cause I'm already gone
Yes, I'm already gone And I'm feeling strong
I will sing this victory song Cause I'm already gone

Yes, I'm already gone Already gone, all right Nighty-night

Already gone Already gone
