    Thumbs up Classic!

    On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
    Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
    Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to stop for the night
    There she stood in the doorway;
    I heard the mission bell
    And I was thinking to myself,
    'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
    Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
    There were voices down the corridor,
    I thought I heard them say...

    Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Hotel California
    Any time of year, you can find it here

    Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
    She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
    How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
    Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
    So I called up the Captain,
    'Please bring me my wine'
    He said,'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'
    And still those voices are calling from far away,
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to hear them say...

    Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    They livin' it up at the Hotel California
    What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

    Mirrors on the ceiling,
    The pink champagne on ice
    And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
    And in the master's chambers,
    They gathered for the feast
    The stab it with their steely knives,
    But they just can't kill the beast
    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the place I was before
    'Relax,'said the night man,
    We are programmed to receive.
    You can checkout any time you like,
    but you can never leave!

    Man I remember seriously feeling guilty as ah child hearing and loving dis song...and thinking that it was ah devil song. I used tuh say..."but Jesus would unnerstand, right "

    Couple lines still perplex/trouble me...

    "And in the master's chambers,
    They gathered for the feast
    The stab it with their steely knives,
    But they just can't kill the beast

    ...You can checkout any time you like,

    Very ambiguous and open to interpretation, but if it is ah devil song, yuh have tuh hand it tuh Satan...dat man could write rellllllll lyrics den

    Looooooooovee that song! And the guitar riff in the end by Joe Walsh and Don Felder.............Man, one day I've got to learn to play that riff -- it's a classic.


    But weren't they singing about drug abuse and addictions?
