Often on a Sunday morning I listen to the Archers Omnibus followed by Desert Island Discs - my daughter often reminds me that I like controlled fun in small doses!!
I've enjoyed it in all it's reincarnations, with different presenters, but perhaps I'm not quite old enough for the Roy Plumley original version - or perhaps I was just too busy at the time.
Anyway, Hotel California by the Eagles would definitely be my first choice.
|The Eagles as they are today|
This particular video was recorded in 1994.
We've seen the Eagles three times in concert, once in the late 70's and a couple of times more recently. Band members have come and gone, but they have always put on a terrific show. The sound they recreate is studio quality. This is one of those songs that I could place on a loop and listen to time after time.
Why do I like it? Nostalgia - it reminds me of my relatively carefree university days in the 70's, before work, a mortgage and a family. When you played loud music and didn't worry too much about your neighbours - they were playing their music at full volume too!
