Why is Hotel California such a beautiful song?

When I listen, I get a sense of depression, hopelessness, but at the same time feel like that's how life is and the song is a lesson that life is inescapable and bad things happen. Hotel california represents your mind going through depression and how you can escape it temporarily but you'll always be drawn back in.

    I think it was more the blending of the vocals than the actual lyrics. But that is just my take on the song. It was one of the better albums of that era. I recall a party we had and I was asked to play the album again and again.

    the music itself. It is not like a straight line but more like a rocky road, back and forth.

    It's not. It's about a Satanic cult.

      I think it's addiction: "..could be heaven. or..Hell. Can check in anytime..can never leave." Some Biker clubs are this way, too. Cant leave.

    Never did like that piece of caterwauling, either when it came out or today.
