Hotel California is one of the few songs from which I can still recite (I would never, never, ever, ever say sing) most, if not all, of the lyrics. That, in itself, is an achievement worthy of note so this song just has to be on my soundtrack.
Putting that aside, however, for many of us of a certain age this is one of the anthems of our youth. I had my Eagles phase, of course, which lasted more than a few months, and Hotel California was central to that.
It’s just a great, great piece of music by a legendary group. And a great antidote to the disco infection that was taking over the airwaves in the late-70s.
