Her mind is Tiffany-twisted She got the Mercedes bends 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.
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 night man We are programmed to receive You can check out any time you like But you can never leave!

The song's guitar solo was voted the best solo of all time by readers of Guitarist magazine in ,  and was ranked 8th on Guitar Magazine ' s Top Guitar Solos. It was ranked the number 1 in the list of the best string guitar songs of all times by Guitar World magazine in Glenn Frey said that originally "We decided to create something strange, just to see if we could do it," and that the song was meant to mimic the imagery of the novel The Magus by John Fowles , about a man in an unfamiliar rural setting who is unsure about what he is experiencing.
Don Henley has given a number of explanations about the song, ranging from "a journey from innocence to experience"  to "a sociopolitical statement". I guess you could say it's a song about loss of innocence. The song has been described as being "all about American decadence and burnout, too much money, corruption, drugs and arrogance; too little humility and heart. On just about every album we made, there was some kind of commentary on the music business, and on American culture in general.
The hotel itself could be taken as a metaphor not only for the myth-making of Southern California, but for the myth-making that is the American Dream , because it is a fine line between the American Dream, and the American nightmare. Henley responded:. Thanks for the tutorial and, no, you're not the first to bring this to my attention — and you're not the first to completely misinterpret the lyric and miss the metaphor. Believe me, I've consumed enough alcoholic beverages in my time to know how they are made and what the proper nomenclature is.
But that line in the song has little or nothing to do with alcoholic beverages. It's a sociopolitical statement. My only regret would be having to explain it in detail to you, which would defeat the purpose of using literary devices in songwriting and lower the discussion to some silly and irrelevant argument about chemical processes. In his Encyclopedia of Great Popular Song Recordings, Volume 1 , Steve Sullivan theorizes that the "spirit" that the Hotel California hasn't had since refers to the spirit of social activism of the s, and how disco and the related pop music of the mids had turned away from it.
The metaphorical character of the story related in the lyrics has inspired a number of conjectural interpretations by listeners. In the s the Rev. The term "colitas" in the first stanza "warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air" has been interpreted as a sexual slang or a reference to marijuana.

Don Henley came up with a lot of the lyrics for that song, and he came up with colitas. Other interpretations of the songs include heroin addiction and cannibalism. It was really about the excesses of American culture and certain girls we knew. But it was also about the uneasy balance between art and commerce.
The intro and verses' chord pattern counts eight measures, each one assigned to a single chord.

Seven different chords are used in the eight measures. As the song opens, it is not until the eighth measure that a chord is repeated. The song is initially in the key of B-minor. The eight-measure sequence is repeated in the intro, for each verse and in the outro , providing the harmonic framework for the entire extended dual guitar solo at the end of the song. This chord sequence is not commonly used, and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull has pointed out its similarity to his song "We Used to Know" from their album Stand Up , suggesting the Eagles heard it when they toured together.
The chorus, or refrain , uses five of the song's seven chords, structured with the melody in a way that shifts the key from B-minor to its relative major of D: . Frank Ocean released a song that samples the entire instrumental track of "Hotel California" on his mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra , entitled "American Wedding".
Although the Eagles were noted for their reluctance to license their songs for use in shows,  the song has been used in a number of films and television shows, such as The Big Lebowski performed by the Gipsy Kings ,  Absolutely Fabulous , and The Sopranos. According to Rolling Stone , Julia Phillips , the producer of films like Taxi Driver and Close Encounters of the Third Kind , was interested in shooting a movie based on the song's story. The band members and Phillips met to discuss the project.
Henley said that Phillips offered the band members cocaine and was "nonplussed" when they turned it down. Tension between the two parties ended the pre-development deal for the film. Rolling Stone reported that the band was not upset at this development, as they were not particularly enamored with the idea of "Hotel California" being adapted into a film.
This was because Henley feared that he would lack control over the project. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the song.
