THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
1977-Number 8 single.
Best Bit-At 4.19.A Five Star Hotel.
The Eagles(see also best songs 505) were formed in 1971 in Los Angeles by Glen Frey,Don Henley,Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner,Frey died in 2016 at the age of 67.Two of their Albums,’Their Greatest Hits'(1971-1975′) and ‘Hotel California’ became two of the three biggest selling Albums in the United States by 2006.
Hotel California has become the Eagles signature song,the guitar solo was voted by the readers of the British music magazine ‘Guitarist’ to be the greatest of all time in 1998 and like many a good lyric the songs subject is open to interpretation.The most likely scenario is that the song is about materialism and excess.California is used as the setting but it could relate to anywhere in America.Don Henley has said,’It’s a song about the dark underbelly of the American Dream,it’s a song about a journey from innocence to experience.’
‘You can check out anytime you like,but you can never leave.’
