HOTEL CALIFORNIA - EAGLES LIVE at CAPITAL CENTER 1977
About the song:
One of the most mysterious and widely speculated songs in rock history, “Hotel California” is best described in the words of its creators. As Don Henley explained in the Daily Mail dated 9/11/2007: (Cont'd HERE)

Earlier today I was going to post those two, but got distracted by a phone call.
Here you "get two for the price of one") -- Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash duet!
Bob Dylan feat Johnny Cash - Girl from the North Country
(Sound quality in this video isn't that good. You can find those with better sound on YouTube)
Got them both here...
If you allow the Yerushalayim one to play through, it is followed by a great rendition of the song done by the Soviet Red Army Chorus..
HAUTS LES MAINS - CLUB MED
This song is not about any one specific place, but many! IIRC it was adopted as the official song of all the Club Meds in the Western Hemisphere.
P.S: My guess is that just about everyone is that video is stoned on something or other.... .
(Hauts les mains, la tradition du Club Med, depuis maintenant 70 ans Signes démentiels, danse du village, crazy sign : Inventeur de souvenirs depuis 70 ans).
Another "twofer" :
Die Wacht am Rhein and La Marseillaise
(Both in a scene from what is the best movie ever made!).
I couldn’t resist.
Travelin Man - Ricky Nelson
A NIGHTINGALE SANG IN BARKLEY SQUARE - The Brian Setzer Orchestra
AROUND THE WORLD - Trini Lopez
Hi there mocowgirl! Good to see you here again. Sweet Home Alabama is a favorite of mine as well. I lived with an Aunt in Mobile for a couple of years growing up.
I am surprised he wasn't posted earlier.
How about Franki Zappa's "It Can't Happen Here"? "Here" is a place, isn't it? Problem is, it DID happen, but Frank's no longer around to see that it did.
PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM - Elton John
