CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
THE LAST RESORT
“…I don’t know why
you call someplace paradise,
kiss it goodbye...”
With man encroaching on more idyllic locations in the name of progress, the Eagles track "The Last Resort" questions why we have a penchant to destroy such places.
The song appeared on the band's 1976 album 'Hotel California'. It was its closing track, running at 7.25 minutes.
The verses refer to places of natural beauty such as Malibu in California and Lahaina in Hawaii where white settlers arrived and, in the name of civilization, wrecked the very things that made these locations unique.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
