Backstory.

Yes, I know this song is not from the 80s. But if you’d read my backstory above, you wouldn’t be wondering. My brother used to play this song in our house. It was on a mix tape (an actual tape, son!) and he’d play it over and over. His friends, he told me, would play it over and over too. What is it with Asians and Hotel California? We all seem to know this song word for word. I’ve even seen people who can’t speak a sentence of English properly sing perfectly along to this, including the guitar solos. The only other English tune I can think of is friggin’ ‘Happy Birthday’!

I was looking around for the video clip that had the bit of ‘Seven Bridges Road.’ Voila!
