Hotel California (1994年版本):老鷹合唱團最經典之作


而Eagles最富盛名的代表作品就是Hotel California。

Hotel California收錄在1976年發行的「Hotel California」專輯中。當年這張專輯光在美國就賣出了超過1600萬張,此專輯還被滾石雜誌列為史上最偉大的500張專輯中排名第37。

Hotel California一曲也拿下1977年Billboard告示牌單曲榜冠軍,此曲也被評為世界100首最佳吉他獨奏的第8名。

Eagles於1980年解散,後來於1994年再度合體,隨即發行了一張4首新歌外加多首精選的專輯「Hell Freezes Over」,裡面收錄了重新編曲演唱的Hotel California,經典再現!

1994年的Hotel California演唱會版本


Hotel California的歌詞與中文翻譯:

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
往黑暗沙漠的公路 冷風吹過我的頭髮
Warm smell of colitas,rising up through the air
溫熱的柯利塔氣味 從空氣中升起
Up ahead in the distance I saw a shimmering light
就在前面的遠方 我見到微光閃爍
My head grew heavy, and my sight grew dim
我的頭越發沉重 視線也越來越模糊
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway I heard the mission bell
她站在門旁 我聽到教堂鐘聲
And I was thinking to myself This could be Heaven or this could be Hell
我在心理想 這兒可是天堂還是地獄
Then she lit up a candle And she showed me the way
然後她點亮了蠟燭 幫我帶路
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
多麼可愛的地方 多麼可愛的臉孔
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year You can find it here
一年四季 你都可以來到這裡

Her mind is Tiffany twisted She’s got the Mercedes Benz
她的心思只有名牌 有輛墨西迪賓士
She’s got a lot of pretty, pretty boys That she calls friends
她有很多俊美迷人的男友 她稱之為朋友
How they dance in the courtyard Sweet summer sweat
他們在庭園裡是怎麼的跳舞 甜美的夏日汗水
Some dance to remember Some dance to forget
有些跳舞為了喚起記憶 而有些人為了遺忘

So I called up the Captain Please bring me my wine
所以我叫了領班 請拿些酒來給我
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
讓你在深夜裡也會驚醒 只聽到他們說

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place Such a lovely face
They’re livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise Bring your alibis
帶著你的藉口 來享受如此美好的驚奇

Mirrors on the ceiling Pink champagne on ice
天花板上的鏡子 冰鎮的紅粉香檳
And she said We are all just prisoners here Of our own device
And in the master’s chambers They gathered for the feast
在主人的接待房裡 所有人聚集赴宴
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
我記得的最後一件事 我跑向門口
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
我得找回我的來時路 回到我從前的地方
Relax said the nightman We are programed to receive
放鬆吧 守夜的人說 我們是被創造來接收一切的
You can check out any time you like But you can never leave
只要你想任何時刻都可以結單 不過你將永遠離不開這兒
