[SR - FB] Hotel in Tortuga

Recommended Posts

cyah.jpg On a dark deserted shore, cool wind in my hair.

qot0.jpg : Warm smell of colitas, rising up to the air.

 

 

 jsbj.jpg : up ahead in a distance, I saw a shimmering light

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

I had to stop for the night

jhqy.jpg : There she stood in the doorway, I heard a mission bell

And I was thinking to myself

This could be Heaven or this could be Hell

okuc.jpg : Then she lit up a candle

sv15.jpg : And she showed me the way

there were voices down the corridors,

I thought I heard them say

ozbk.jpg : Welcome to the Hotel in Tortuga

evk0.jpg : such a lovely place (such a lovely place) such a lovely face

Plenty of room at the Hotel in Tortuga

Anytime of year (anytime of year), you can find it here.

 

6m0u.jpg : Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got a nice ship class eight

2je0.jpg: She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boyz, she calls friends

giy6.jpg : How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat

hkjj.jpg : Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.

bp4w.jpg : So I called up the captain : "please bring me my wine"

b193.jpg : he said : "We haven't had that spirit here since 599"

And still those voices coming from far away...

nmy8.jpg : wake you up in the middle of the night

Just to hear them say

384t.jpg : Welcome to the Hotel in Tortuga

such a lovely place (such a lovely place) Such a lovely face.

quh3.jpg : They're living it up at the Hotel in Tortuga

What a nice surprise
Bring your alibies

Mirrors on the ceiling
Pink champagne on ice
And she said
We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device

qkgd.jpg : And in the master's chamber, they gathered for the feast

drw5.jpg : They stab it with there steely knives

r30o.jpg: But they just can't kill the beast

 

pcc4.jpg : Last thing I remember,

jmb7.jpg : I was running for the door

I have to find a passage back to the place I was before.

o3ku.jpg : Relax said the nightman

p8ei.jpg : we are programmed to receive

elwa.jpg : You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave !

Ouf, finished.

Tribute to the Eagles and the wonderful "Hotel California"

This is a subject on which I was struggling for a long time, I'm pretty happy on how it turned.

C&C welcome as usual.

Even if I didn't count the footprint, I'm pretty sure it will fit for a large property, but a large property of what ??

I will think about this, but that was not the goal.

This succession of builds was to try some technic for the walls, the floors, etc, etc. And when I decided to mimic the Hotel California song, I must confess that the most difficult stuff to build was... this f**cking double shafted guitar played by Don Felder

 

To my surprise, the member of the band were pretty easy to mimic :

yc6f.jpg : Henley

j2px.jpg : Frey

6gnk.jpg : Leadon

ma2m.jpg : Walsh

and

0noe.jpg : Felder

Great tribute, the changes to the lyrics to fit the BoBS world and accompanying scenes were great!

Indeed a masterpiece! The song fits perfectly. A Lot of trouble to make it all fit, no doubt. 

I like the beds, the big closet, the monster, the band, the bar and ofcourse the adaption of the text to BotBS world haha

Brilliant! Read it once but then read it again with the song playing in the back and enjoyed it even more :thumbup:

Thanks all for the kind words.

I'm now, thinking about a song contest :pir-classic:.

And I will probably have some more stuff to pick from music.

Do you know Alestorm ? :pir-huzzah1:

I wanted to take my time before replying here.

You did an awesome job! Everyone knows the song so from the first words, I was "singing" it :)

Also awesome job depicting the song. You have improved a lot since you started here :)

@Mister Phes And the whole idea started from the original picture, as I said to myself  "California rhyme with Tortuga : let' s build a hotel"

Well let's drink to that (at the hotel)! :pir-huzzah2:
