Who cares? As far as I’m concerned, he slapped together lines of disjointed thoughts that perhaps rhymed, and then drove people nuts trying to figure out what he meant.
Put it to bed, please.
I believe you are correct.
Now that we’ve put that behind us, who was “... so vain ...”?
As my brother said, “It used to be relevant, but now it’s just a song DJs play when they want a bathroom break”.
Yep. It’s only “explained” if Don is doing the explaining.
All that is pretty much how I understood the song. I didn't think it disjointed at all - a beautiful tapestry of lyrics and music. And very strong religious undertones. I sure Satan is laughing with delight watching a country murder its children by the millions.
I'd have to say that without a doubt there is some kind of way to see that there is something to be said regarding the way that things occurred. If not in the first place then certainly upon looking at what anyone would consider a sensible viewpoint. Any serious person can conclude that the absolute bottom line is that there is something to the idea that we would know that there is substance to what we are talking about. Don't get sidetracked on the notion that if this was not exactly what everyone thought then it would not be the thing being discussed. Nobody that looks at either way we agree on can be worried about that.

What about HOTEL CALIFORNIA?
Like American Pie, I’ve been trying to discover what this song is all about.
Is it about drugs? Is it about the founding of the Church of Satan in 1969?
It’s driving me nuts and nobody even attempted to contact anyone from the Eagles to ask them this question...
Any message that cryptic falls on deaf ears. Thus, the song is just noise, signifying nothing.
And dragged it out so long they had to break in the middle to run commercials. :^)
