Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Hotel California"
Misheard Lyrics:
And pink shampoo on ice
Original Lyrics:
And pink champagne on ice

Story about this misheard lyric by: Isac

It doesn't sound anything like Don Henley is saying "And pink shampoo on ice," but when I listened to the song at the time it was popular, and he said "And pink champagne on ice," it made me think of a glass of pink shampoo with ice, because "champagne" sounds somewhat like "shampoo" because of the "shamp" sound at the beginning of both words.

Songs That Open With Their Titles:

"I Wish You Peace"
Opening Lines:
I wish you peace when the cold wind blows, Warmed by the fire's glow.
Comments:
"I Wish You Peace" is yet another song from the Eagles' "One Of These Nights" lp. After the success of "One Of These Nights" some creative differences would shake up the band's membership (although main principles and vocalist, Don Henley and Glen Frey would stay with the band), most noticably Joe Walsh going solo (and succesfully at that). The revamped group would come back in the fall 1976 with the multi-million dollar seller lp, "Hotel California" which would produced the #1 singles, "Hotel California" and "New Kid In Town" as well as the #3 hit, "Life In The Fast Lane" and the top twenty hit, "Victim Of Love". This same group would also release another multi-million dollar hit lp, "The Long Run" which would not only produce the top five title tune, but also the #1 hit, "Heartache Tonight", and the top ten hits, "I Can't Tell You Why", "In The City" and "Those Shoes". The Eagles also firmly established themselves as a Classic Rock and Classic Hits artist for all time. But shortly after the success of "The Long Run", in 1980, the Eagles announced to the world their breakup and both Don Henley and Glen Frey would have successful solo careers well into the 1990's (Henley would also gain notarity for his liberal and environmental views and working for and giving financially to liberal and environmental political causes and candidates). The Eagles' would reform (the late 1970's version, minus Joe Walsh) in the mid-1990's for another lp, and several brief tours.
