Alabama 3 Covers "Hotel California"

Alabama 3 and Their Eagles Cover

If you have traveled anywhere AT ALL in the entire world, you are well aware of the fact that The Eagle’s “Hotel California” is one of the most played songs to this day and is covered often by foreign bands playing English and American covers.


I’ve never understood the reasons for the continuing popularity of the song because “Hotel California” is almost a million minutes long and has several stanzas of lyrics that can’t be easy for non-native English speakers to memorize. Of course, some countries may have different standards for what makes music popular; it could just be that the longer a song is, the more impressive it actually seems or appears to be.
