Quote# 71375

"When the quake struck at 4:53 P.M. on January 12th, Signal FM was playing 'Hotel California.' The earth groaned and the building shuddered. But just before the DJ ran out, he had the presence of mind to hit the 'repeat' button. So for the first 30 minutes of Port-au-Prince's descent into hell, the only thing you could hear on the radio was the Eagles standard - over and over and over." (21) Every Satanist and most witches know full well that "Hotel California" is another name for the church of Satan. The song describes very clearly the captivating of the soul by Satanism. It even contains a verse describing human sacrifice, stating that the participants "stabbed him with their steely knives but could not kill the beast." It also describes the onlooker running for the door, where he was met by the "night man" who told him, "….we are programmed to receive, you can check out any time you want but you can never leave." It is quite amazing that this song so compatible with voodoo was the only thing playing as judgment was falling upon that pagan land. This is too appropriate to be coincidental.

I friggin hate The Eagles but even I know "Hotel California" is about *see below*

I much prefer the Mojo Nixon classic "Don Henley must die"

Mortician

You jackass.

Don Henley, as quoted in the London Daily Mail (November 9, 2007):"Some of the wilder interpretations of that song have been amazing. It was really about the excesses of American culture and certain girls we knew. But it was also about the uneasy balance between art and commerce."

I also wanted to add this little nugget per songfacts.com: The line "They stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast" is a reference to Steely Dan. The bands shared the same manager and had a friendly rivalry. The year before, Steely Dan included the line "Turn up the Eagles, the neighbors are listening" on their song "Everything You Did."

And as David J. Meyer was typing, the radio suddenly began playing and replaying "Send in the Clowns."

shifty eyes

I always thought the song was about someone who dies in a car crash. "Dark desert highway...saw a shimmering light/head grew heavy and my sight grew dim" "This could be heaven or... hell" "...you can never leave"

Then there was Chile, followed by Turkey. Given God's notoriously poor aim, this is a clear indication that God is pissed off at Upper Graustark, the Grand Duchy of Durr, and certain parts of New Jersey.

When I returned to my what used to be a house after a hurricane, there was a Beatles album laying in the middle of the yard. It was "Help". I guess that too was "too appropriate to be coincidental". But then again....why wasnt a babble sitting in the front yard? And yet, then again.....was gawd punishing me with a hurricane for my sins? The fantasy illusions can go on forever.

I like "Hotel California". Am I a satanist now?

That reminds me of this one time I farted while listening to Stairway to Heaven backwards.

In a way I kind of feel sorry for David J. Meyer. He's an old guy with failing health and clearly any semblance of brains he once had are rotting out.

WHAT.

I bet they're glad it wasn't "Don't Worry, Be Happy".

Someone oughta tell the Eagles that their song is not about what they think it's about. (cocaine addiction)

This guy could easily be the subject of a Ph.D. thesis in abnormal psychology.

YOU INFIDEL!!! YOU LEAVE THE EAGLES OUT OF THIS!

Seriously, man. That song isnt about evil, occultism, or the devil! Its about ghosts in a haunted old hotel in which the guy happened to be suckered into staying the night at. And this is why he says you can check in but can never leave. The ghosts wanted to turn him into one of them. Once again. NOTHING TO DO WITH SATAN. Get off your high horse. I know music better than you do obviously. And thats just sad. I bet jesus loves music. And the eagles. And your a blasphemer. HAHAHAHA

What is even more amazing is the bazillion other times Hotel California has been played and nothing has happened.

Also, I am sure that somewhere in the very Christian country of Haiti someone was singing a hymnal when the quake struck. That too is an eerie coincidence.

Oh, also, you are a complete douchebag.

Every Satanist and most witches know full well that "Hotel California" is another name for the church of Satan.

Well, there's actually no such thing as witches but can any satanist confirm what I already suspect: that this guy is full of shit?

The song describes very clearly the captivating of the soul by Satanism.

No, like most art, the meaning is carefully hidden behind metaphor and isn't clear at all. In fact, before Mortician provided the explanation from the artist himself I had no idea that the song was about American culture and commerce. What IS clear is that fundies think they know everyone else's motives even though they're just making shit up.

It even contains a verse describing human sacrifice, stating that the participants "stabbed him with their steely knives but could not kill the beast."

Okay, even if we buy your ridiculous assertion that this is about Satanism, wouldn't this more likely be about how powerful Satan is? You know "just can't kill the beast". However, I doubt your entire interpretation so this is a moot point.

It also describes the onlooker running for the door, where he was met by the "night man" who told him, "….we are programmed to receive, you can check out any time you want but you can never leave."

And this has exactly what to do with Satanism? I'd say it's a far better description of fundamentalist Christianity.

It is quite amazing that this song so compatible with voodoo

Voodoo? I thought you said it was about Satanism? Oh wait, I forgot. If it's not your denomination of Christianity it must be Satanism, right?

was the only thing playing as judgment was falling upon that pagan land

Yes, Haiti is a Pagan land just like Russia is a Jewish land. Meanwhile, here in Realityland, we know that Haiti is mostly Catholic and thus cannot be called a Pagan land by any stretch of the imagination. Just because they're not burning Pagans at the stake doesn't mean their land is run by them. Just like how straight people can support gay rights and not secretly be gay.

This is too appropriate to be coincidental

Well, as we've all demonstrated here, it's not appropriate so there is no coincidence; well, maybe that both the DJ and I like Hotel California.

Actually, the song is a condemnation of hedonism and self-destruction in Southern California, in other words, something that you guys should actually love.

"Somebody's gonna hurt someone - before the night is through"

Those lyrics describe what'll happen to this asshole if I ever see him on the street - namely kick him right in his nuts.

Whoops - double post. My bad.

3/12/2010 1:45:01 PM



Right. So what are colitas, again?

Every "classic rock" station in the U.S. has played Hotel California several times a day for about 30 years. If Davy the retard were right? North America would be smoking rubble.

"It even contains a verse describing human sacrifice, stating that the participants 'stabbed him with their steely knives but could not kill the beast.'"



You mean like this?

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain
Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior?s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

(Refrain)

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

(Refrain)

...what? And for the last time, Haiti is a Catholic country. Voodoo practitioners there are a small minority.
