上個禮拜在一間有Live Band的餐廳吃飯,

克里斯點了<老鷹合唱團>的Hotel California這首歌給我,

讓很久都沒有再聽到他們的歌的我,

當場沉醉在這英文老歌中,並且在之後找出他們的歌,

一首一首地聽著。



記得高中時代的我,是最迷英文老歌的時候,

從The Beatles,The eagles,Queen,Rolling Stones,U2...我幾乎都聽,

高中沒有交過男友也不知道情為何物的我,

有點像是「為賦新詞強說愁」,我聽這些老歌歌詞邊唱著,

有時候還邊寫詩和一些感性的文章,現在想起來以前真有「文藝氣息」呀。



我高中最喜歡的歌當然就是Hotel California,

那時候我覺得如果不喜歡這首歌的人,不夠格說他喜歡The Eagles,

現在老了七歲,我覺得我最喜歡的歌是Love will keep us alive,

其他像是Desperado,Tequila Sunrise,Heartache Tonight...

都值得讓人在一個寧靜的午後一聽再聽...。




以下是Hotel California和Love will keep us alive的歌詞:





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 face

Plenty of room at the hotel california

Any time of year, you can find it here



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 havent 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...



Welcome to the hotel california

Such a lovely place

Such a lovely face

They livin it up at the hotel california

What a nice surprise, bring your alibis



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 masters chambers,

They gathered for the feast

The stab it with their steely knives,

But they just cant 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 checkout any time you like,

But you can never leave!

I was standing

All alone against the world outside

You were searching

For a place to hide



Lost and lonely

Now youve given me the will to survive

When were hungry...love will keep us alive



Dont you worry

Sometimes youve just gotta let it ride

The world is changing

Right before your eyes

Now I've found you

Theres no more emptiness inside

When were hungry...love will keep us alive



I would die for you

Climb the highest mountain

Baby, theres nothing I wouldnt do



I was standing

All alone against the world outside

You were searching

For a place to hide

Lost and lonely

Now youve given me the will to survive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive
