37. The Eagles - Hotel California

The Eagles

This is the first Eagles album featuring Joe Walsh. Together with Don Felder, they are a gifted tandem and push the Eagles to a harder sound. It's also Randy Messiness' swan song with the band. The band examines the high and lows of the land of hopes and dreams, California. Don Henley's voice is great in rock songs and ballads as well. A real corner stone, definitely the most listened the country/rock album.

01.- 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 dimmer
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 h eard them say...

Refrain:
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
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's 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 1969'
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Refrain:
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely Place (such a lovely face)
They're 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
They 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 nightman, ‘We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave'


02.- New Kid In Town

There's talk on the street, it sounds so familiar.
Great expectations, everybody's watching you.
People you meet they all seem to know you,
Even your old friends treat you like you're something new.
Johnny-come-lately, the new kid in town,
Everybody loves you, so don't let them down.

You look in her eyes, the music begins to play.
Hopeless romantics, here we go again.
But after a while you're looking the other way.
It's those restless hearts that never mend.
Johnny-come-lately, the new kid in town,
Will she still love you when you're not around?

There's so many things you should have told her
But night after night you're willing to hold her,
Just hold her tears on your shoulder.

There's talk on the street, it's there to remind you
That it doesn't really matter which side you're on.
You're walking away and they're talking behind you.
They will never forget you till somebody new comes along.

Where you been lately? There's a new kid in town.
Everybody loves him, don't they? Now he's holding her
And you're still around, oh my my.
There's a new kid in town,
Just another new kid in town.

Oo-hoo, everybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town.
Oo-hoo, everybody's walking like the new kid in town.
There's a new kid in town, I don't want to hear it
There's a new kid in town, I don't want to hear it
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town, everybody's talking
There's a new kid in town, people started walking
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town
(Repeat & Fade)


03.- Life In The Fast Lane

He was a hard-headed man he was brutally handsome
And she was terminally pretty
She held him up and he held for ransom
In the heart of the cold, cold city
He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
They said he was ruthless said he was crude
They had one thing in common: they were good in bed
She'd say, "Faster, faster. "The lights are turning red."

Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane

Eager for action and hot for the game
The coming attraction, the drop of a name
They knew all the right people; They took all the right pills
They threw outrageous parties; They paid heavenly bills
There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face
She pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race
Out every evenin' until it was light
He was too tired to make it; she was too tired to fight about it.

Life in the fast lane surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane everything all the time
Life in the fast lane

Blowin' and burnin' blinded by thirst
They didn't see the stop sign; Took a turn for the worst
She said, "Listen, baby. You can hear the engine ring.
"We've been up and down this highway; haven't seen a god-damn thing."
He said, "Call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash."
"The doctor say he's coming but you gotta pay in cash."
They were rushing down that freeway; messed around and got lost
They didn't care they were just dyin' to get off.

And it was life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane everything all the time
Life in the fast lane


04.- Wasted Time

Well, baby, there you stand
With your little head down in your hand.
Oh my God, you can't believe it's happening again.
Your baby's gone and you're all alone and it looks like the end.

And you're back out on the street
And you're tryin' to remember.
How do you start it over? You don't know if you can.
You don't care much for a stranger's touch but you can't hold your man.

You never thought you'd be alone
This far down the line
And I know what's been on your mind,
You're afraid it's all been wasted time.

The autumn leaves have got you thinking
About the first time that you fell.
You didn't love the boy too much,
No no, you just loved the boy too well.
Farewell.

So you live from day to day
And you dream about tomorrow, oh.
And the hours go by like minutes and the shadows come to stay.
So ya take a little something to make them go away.

And I could have done so many things, baby,
If I could only stop my mind
From wond'rin' what I left behind
And from worryin' 'bout this wasted time.

Ooh, another love had come and gone.
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on.
I remember what you told me before you went out on your own:
Sometimes to keep it together we got to leave it alone.

So you can get on with your search, baby,
And I can get on with mine.
And maybe someday we will find
That it wasn't really wasted time.

06.- Victim Of Love

What kind of love have you got?
You should be home but you're not.
A room full of noise and dangerous boys
Still make you thirsty and hot.
I heard about you and that man.
There's just one thing I don't understand.
You say he's a liar and he put out your fire,
How come you still got his gun in your hand?

Victim of love, I see a broken heart.
You got your stories to tell.
Victim of love, it's such an easy part
And you know how to play it so well.

Some people never come clean,
I think you know what I mean, oh.
You're walkin' the wire, pain and desire,
Lookin' for love in between.
Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you mine.
This ain't no time to be cool.
And tell all your girlfriends, your "been around the world" friends
That talk is for losers and fools.

Victim of love, I see a broken heart.
I could be wrong but I'm not, no, I'm not.
Victim of love, we're not so far apart.
Show me what kind of love have you got.

Victim of love, I see a broken heart.
I could be wrong but I'm not.
Victim of love, we're not so far apart.
What kind of love have you got?

Victim of love, you're just a victim of love.
I could be wrong but I'm not, no, I'm not.
Victim of love, now you're a victim of love.
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?


07.- Pretty Maids All In A Row

Hi there, how are ya? It's been a long time.
Seems like we've come a long way.
My, but we learn so slow
And heroes they come and they go
And leave us behind as if we re's pposed to know why.
Why do we give up our hearts to the past?
And why must we grow up so fast?

And all you wishing well fools with your fortunes,
Someone should send you a rose
With love from a friend. It's nice to hear from you again.
And the storybook comes to a close.
Gone are the ribbons and bows.
Things to remember, places to go,
Pretty maids all in a row.

All in a row, all in a row...


08.- Try And Love Again

When you're out there on your own
Where your memories can find you.
Like a circle goes around you were lost until you found out
What it all comes down to.
One by one the lonely feelings come.
Day by day they slowly fade away.

Ooh, the look was in her eyes,
You never know what might be found there.
She was dancing right in time and the moves she made so fine
Like the music that surrounds her.
Should I stay or go? I really wanna know.
Would I lose or win if I try and love again?

Oh o-o-o-oh, gonna try and love again.
O-oh o-o-o-oh, I'm gonna try and love again.
O-oh o-o-o-oh gonna try and love.

Right or wrong, what's done is done.
It's only moments that you borrow.
But the thoughts will linger on of the lady and her song
When the sun comes up tomorrow.
Well, it might take years to see through all these tears.
Don't let go, when you find it you will know.

Oh o-o-o-oh, gonna try and love again.
O-oh o-o-o-oh, gonna try and love again.
O-oh o-o-o-oh, gonna try and love again. O-OH O-O-O-OH
O-OH O-O-O-OH sometimes lose, sometimes win,
Sometimes you need a friend
O-OH O-O-O-OH, O-OH O-O-O-OH

Gonna try
Gonna try
Gonna try gonna try gonna try gonna try...


09.- The Last Resort

She came from Providence, the one in Rhode Island
Where the old world shadows hang heavy in the air.
She packed her hopes and dreams like a refugee,
Just as her father came across the sea.

She heard about a place people were smilin',
They spoke about the red man's way, how they loved the land.
And they came from everywhere to the Great Divide
Seeking a place to stand or a place to hide.

Down in the crowded bars out for a good time,
Can't wait to tell you all what it's like up there.
And they called it paradise, I don't know why.
Somebody laid the mountains low while the town got high.

Then the chilly winds blew down across the desert,
Through the canyons of the coast to the Malibu
Where the pretty people play hungry for power
To light their neon way and give 'em things to do.

Some rich man came and raped the land, nobody caught 'em,
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus, people bought 'em.
And they called it paradise, the place to be,
They watched the hazy sun sinking in the sea.

You can leave it all behind and sail to Lahaina
Just like the missionaries did so many years ago.
They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is Coming",
Brought the white man's burden down, brought the white man's reign.

Who will provide the grand design, what is yours and what is mine?
'Cause there is no more new frontier, we have got to make it here.
We satisfy our endless needs and justify our bloody deeds
In the name of destiny and in the name of God.

And you can see them there on Sunday morning
Stand up and sing about what it's like up there.
They called it paradise, I don't know why.
You call some place paradise - kiss it goodbye.
