76年のアルバム、あの宝石を散りばめたような名盤中の名盤、『ホテル・カリフォルニア』を心の中に宝物して大切に抱いている方は世界中にたくさんいらっしゃるでしょうね!その中からこのサイトで過去に、2曲、◎素晴らしい愛をもう一度 – Try and Love Again、◎ラスト・リゾート – The Last Resort をご紹介させて頂きましたが、本命中の本命、ホテルカリフォルニアは大事に温めてました。今回は1977年のライブ映像で『ホテルカリフォルニア』をご紹介させて頂きます^^

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.
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’s got the Mercedes Benz.
She’s 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 1969.”
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 alibies.

Mirrors on the ceiling, and 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 nightman, “We are programed to receive.”
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
