Dica de pronúncia: Hotel California, The Eagles

hotel californiaNas minhas aulas de vocal coaching em inglês e espanhol, sempre gravo a letra da música com um ritmo semelhante ao do original cantado, para que o cantor/aluno possa ouvir e ver as nuances da pronúncia, que muitas vezes não são percebidas na parte cantada.

Uma das músicas mais requisitada é Hotel California, de The Eagles, que conta (resumidamente) a história de um hotel-fantasma.

Deixo abaixo o vídeo da canção falada e a letra abaixo. Listen and practice!

Hotel California
The Eagles

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be Heaven or this could be Hell

Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (2x)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (2x)
You can find us here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes-Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain
Please bring me my wine
He said, we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (2x)
Such a lovely face
We’re livin’ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (2x)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said, we are all just prisoners here, of our own device
And in the master’s chambers
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
Relax, said the night man

We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave
