Trivia Tuesday + WIN a Vibe chillout suite CD: Where is the Hotel California?

chillout-suite-cd-where-is-the-hotel-californiaYou thought it was the title of an old Eagles’ song, didn’t you?

Nah-uh.

The Hotel California is a 3.5 star property in Albufeira, Portugal.

Gimmicky hotel names aside, there has been a lot of conjecture about Hotel California’s lyrics. Is it about a satanic playground (see: ‘stabbing with their steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast’)? Is it about cocaine addiction? Or is it about the Camarillo State Mental Hospital?

The band says no; it’s about the dark side of the American dream. Hmph. That’s not very controversial.

What is cool about that song is that it’s a classic chillout track. I remember my parents playing it on vinyl during long summer afternoons in our old weatherboard house. That and Lionel Ritchie and John Denver (I love them all).

I was surprised and delighted  when I listened to the new Vibe chillout suite CD. I thought it would be kinda mainstream (not that there’s anything wrong with that but I am die-hard folk music lover) but it was actually weird in the best possible way. My favourite song on the album is Hope by Jack Carty, followed She Makes Me Feel by Mansions on the Moon.

Would you like your very own copy of this 40-track double CD?

Well, your dreams are about to come true, Possum Magic.
