10 underrated Eagles songs

I recently watched the 3hr "History of the Eagles".

 Of course they have a lot of hits and are arguably the biggest American Rock Band of all-time. Their "Greatest Hits" collection sold over 26 million albums alone!

I like some of their lesser known songs just as much. 

Here are 10 of them

Vinyl Exam- Lou Reed "New York"

I really didn’t become a fan of Lou Reed until I bought his 1984 release “New Sensations” on cassette. I used to listen to it when I worked at a record store.

His music reminds me of a combination of Iggy Pop and Bob Dylan. It also has some of the electric rawness of Neil Young and Crazy Horse.
The chord progressions are not usually very complicated but the performances are passionate and a lot of importance placed on the lyrics. I don’t listen to him that often. I have to be in the mood. This past Sunday, I was in the mood and listened to some tracks in the car on a cold grey day.

“New York” released in 1989, was to me, his last great album. The whole album paints a grim portrait of the city and really America in general.
