OLDIES BUT GOODIES – EAGLES – HOTEL CALIFORNIA – WELCOME…

the-eagles-hotel-californiaUne chanson que l’on a tous en tête ! Depuis sa sortie en 1976, elle a été reprise des dizaines de fois mais c’est la version « historique » des Eagles qui reste en mémoire !

Eagles est un groupe californien formé en 1970, aux influences country et Bluegrass, pionnier du country rock.

On a tous rêvé de s’installer dans cet hôtel California !! (enfin pas vraiment… !)

« Hotel California »

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 place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it hereHer mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forgetSo 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 place)
Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibisMirrors 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
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beastLast 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 check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave! «
