Eagles: Hotel California

Eagles乐队最早于1976年演唱“Hotel California”,由Don Henley领唱。此曲目让Eagles获得了空前成功,并被多家机构评为历史上最受欢迎的100首歌曲之一。
歌曲简单描述了疲倦的“我”在驾驶后,投宿Hotel California的经历和当时心情的描写。这首歌被看成是1970年代后期,南利福尼亚音乐界关于享乐主义和自我毁灭描述的代表作。歌词中提到奔驰(Mercedes-Benz)和Tiffiny代表了物质的享乐。而Benz更是用谐音(bends)与"Twisted"一起隐喻了扭曲的物质享乐。
Don Henley领唱尤为特别。他的声音高亢,嘹亮而悠扬。歌声旋律优美,非常容易记住。有意思的是,这首6分多钟的歌曲,其前奏(过门儿)是我见过的最长的一个。长达将近一分钟。非常动听。
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.
There's plenty of room at the Hotel California.
Any time of year
(any time of year),
You can find it here."

Her mind is Tiffany -twisted,
She got the Mercedes-Benz, ungh.
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 place.)
Such a lovely face.
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California.
What a nice surprise
(what a nice surprise),
Bring your alibis."

Mirrors on the ceiling,
Pink champagne on ice.
And she said,
"We are all just Prisoners here,
of our own device."
And in their 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 night man,
"We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!"
