Maggie’s Pick 6.30.14: ‘Hotel California’ by The Eagles

Because I love you, you get not one, not two, but three different versions of this song! Regular, live, and live acoustic, each more enchanting than the last.

This song usually comes on the radio whenever I’m taking a road trip somewhere. There is so much in this song. A few lyrics that resonate with me:

“Her 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 forget”

“You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave”

I love listening to this one because for the first minute, the audience has no idea what’s going on, and when they realize which song this is, they freak out. It’s magical.
