SLS: Elevator Music?

rainbow piano keys music notes

Okay, so I have no idea what “elevator music” is, but the goog tells me it is an instrumental of a popular song that plays in the background while people focus on other things. Obviously then, for Jim’s assignment this week, I ran over to YouTube to grab an instrumental version of “Hotel California” by the Eagles, since it’s one of my favorite songs. Maybe it’s too rambunctious for an elevator. In any case, I enjoy it a lot, so that’s what you’re getting. The song was written in 1976 by the Dons Felder and Henley along with Glenn Frey (RIP). It hit No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 after its release in 1977, received a Grammy for record of the year in 1978, and is considered the Eagles most famous hit. Julia Phillips (also RIP) wanted to make it into a movie, but the group declined. Dang, that would have been cool! My friends and I dressed up as pieces of HC one year for Halloween (I was pink champagne on ice). Though I adore the lyrics to the song, I really enjoyed listening to this instrumental version.

  3. This song even sounds great without the lyrics and I would be very happy if this was playing while I was in an elevator. I am happy that you chose something that you liked.
