Day 7: A song to drive to

This has to be Hotel California – The Eagles. This song has followed me everywhere I’ve been in my life and it is so epic to sing along to in the car with the windows wound down.

It bring memories of air guitar solos in friends’ bedrooms, memories of walking along a road in the south of France daily for three weeks where I passed a hotel called, you guessed it, Hotel California. My next door neighbours regularly blast this loudly and I join them in singing along. It is epic in every way. Love the words, love the music and more lately, well, if you know, you know. This song will NEVER be the same. It hasn’t ruined it, it’s only made it better.

“On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air…”

Now close your eyes and imagine.
