On a Regal Princess cruise from Auckland to Sydney in 2002 they played an Eagles Greatest Hits tape EVERY afternoon on Lido Deck by the pools. But somebody edited out part of the 5th verse of "Hotel California", that says:
And in the master's chamber,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast.

Now I understand the reason for the edit, but they didn't splice the tape and take it out; they just erased it; so there was this dead spot every time they played it. To this day, every time I here "Hotel California", I am caught by surprise at hearing the whole lyric.

Wasn't that a sly reference to Steely Dan? I recall Don Henley saying so. Some sort of inside joke.

I love the Eagles but even I'd get tired of hearing them every afternoon - even if it were Hell Freezes Over. I love the acoustic version of Hotel California.

There have been volumes written about "Hotel California" . . .the album and the song; hard to know what's true and what's hype. But Henley would certainly be the authority.

I'm with you on acoustic "California"; and I really love their "Farewell 1 Tour--Live from Melbourne" DVD; sonically one of the best live recordings I've ever heard. And you aren't distracted by crew and cameras and booms in every shot.

I have one that shocked me. You know how when they put the music on auto after the live band leaves on Lido? They played the European version of "If you didn't come to dance"...or something like that for several days on the Carnival Legend's Lido deck. The song said "If you didn't come to dance, then sit the "f" down". I was with a group that had several kids. When I mentioned it to the CD, they said "Opps!" about it.

I don't really remember hearing any music playing on my cruise, other than the band by the pool.

Hi Maurine.

If you want to improve your italian, here's the song chorus:
"Dimmi quando tu verrai - dimmi quando quando quando
L'anno, l'ora, il giorno in cui - non ci lasceremo mai"

And this is the bridge:
"Se vuoi dirmi di si - devi dirlo perchè
Non ha senso per me - la mia vita senza te"

The whole thing can be literally translated as follows:
Chorus
Tell me when you will come - tell me when, when, when
The year, the hour, the day when - we'll never leave each other
Bridge
If you want to say yes to me - you must say it because
Makes no sense to me - my life without you


Oh, about Titanic - they actually lived happily ever after.
In the bottom of the sea...

Considering I don't know any Italian! If I need to know anything, I just ask my Chihuahua. His doggie mother is originally from Italy so he's part Italian.

Thanks for the Italian lesson. I think you would cringe if you actually heard me.

Who knows ... but considering your conversation mate, I fear you'd first need to lose some "accent" ... the barking one
