I agree Henley is a twit, but I'm siding with him on this one.
Oh well, they also have an add for " 3 Dog Long Johns", and they used the phrase " 3 Dog Night".
That reminds me. I need to order some new long johns, and I'm going to don a henley.
Well, let's see, I use the word "wanna" all the time. I also use "get" just about every day. And everybody says "away."
Why don't you and Stratenstein start up a business, put together a nice ad campaign behind the words "wanna get away" and see how far you get? All common words.
Don Henley has to protect his name, especially when used for commercial purposes.
Don sure likes to pontificate.
The lyrics to Hotel California are one of the most ridiculously overblown metaphors I've ever heard in rock. I like the music and love the dueling guitars at the end, but I think the lyrics are comically bad. The only funnier song lyric I can think of offhand is Helplessly Hoping with its endless alliteration. Oh yeah and Horse with no Name.
"...the heat was hot..."
I don't think most people even realize it's a metaphor. To them, it's just a "Twilight Zone"-style horror narrative. It's ability to work on both levels is a testament to its success as a lyric.
As someone said " You're in the desert! You have nothing to do! NAME THE HORSE!!"
Hotel California song meanings:
check out the one by avengedsurviveon January 18, 2008
It's like, you know, their song Last Resort, it is like, the last option, and uh, you know, also it's like the last remaining posh place to stay. whoah, different levels, man..
Testament to its success as a lyric, eh?
This reminds me of the very drunk guys and the ugly drunk chicks at the bar and it is 3:00 AM and one guy and one ugly chick get together and
Testament to the "success" of way too much alcohol and/or drugs = No Testament worth making. I think the guys who went home alone at 1:05 were the "Lucky" ones but everyone has their own priorities.
Or of you prefer, Testament to the success of the McDonald's Big Mac.
"The heat was hot" is a good line.
hey, when was the last time you, me and skully agreed on something! ha! it took Henley to do it! ha ha!
Alrighty then. Perhaps the bars have already opened in your town, eh?
Gimme my steely knives. I'm gonna kill that beast.
that line was clearly a reference to steely dan
who should sue don henley
I'm not a big fan of that song, because it's so didactic and bitter, as well as obvious and on-the-nose. But it doesn't take anything away from "Hotel California."
It was indeed a reference to Steely Dan. It was a quid pro quo. From Wikipedia:
And Steely Dan took their name from a dildo in the William Burroughs novel "Naked Lunch."
I'm eternally grateful!
You and me - sure! But Skully - I don't know ...
Yep, tough to stab with one of those. More like assault with a friendly weapon.
