Behold! Here's my first ever pony song! It is a rewrite of The Eagles' "Hotel California."

Here's a pic of Pinkamena I found in an old EqD drawfriend (to set the mood). When I saw this pic it gave me the inspirational push to finish this song (I had a "Eureka! That's it!" moment when I saw it, because of the mood it sets). Also interestingly reminds me of the song "Withy Woman."



Here's what the lyrics mean:



It's a soft homage to Cupcakes. It is about a roving stallion who decides to stop in Ponyville for the night and stops at the Sugarcube Corner, which for the sake of the song is a "hotel." (Just roll with it :P), owned by the mysterious seductress named Pinkamena Diane Pie. As time goes on his soul is stolen by her (in the form of his cutie mark), and he becomes another one of her many soulless, blank-flank servants for the rest of time.



So without further ado:

Trotting down on the high plains, cool wind in my mane

Warm smell of fresh baked goods, rising up from the lane

Up ahead in the distance, a village came into sight

My saddlebag grew heavy while my eyes grew tired

I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway;

A most exotic being she was,

And I was thinking to myself,

"Am I crazy, or did I find Oz?"

Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way

There were voices down the corridor,

I thought I heard them neigh...

Welcome to the Hotel Pinkamena

What a lovely place (What a lovely place)

What a lovely face

Plenty of room at the Hotel Pinkamena

Any time of year (Any time of year)

You can find it here

Her mind is Everfree-twisted, the message her azure eyes send,

She got a lot of pretty, pretty colts, that she calls friends

How they prance in the gardens, to their lives’ silhouette.

Some prance to remember, some prance to forget

So I called up the servant,

"Bring me a muffin soon"

He said, "We haven't had that pastry here since the fall of Nightmare Moon"

And still those voices are calling from far away,

Shake you out from the deepest of your sleeps,

Just to hear them neigh...

Welcome to the Hotel Pinkamena

What a lovely place (What a lovely place)

What a lovely face

They livin' it up at the Hotel Pinkamena

What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)

There’s zap-apple pies

Cutie Marks on the ceiling,

The pink fruit punch on ice

And she said "Please come here my dear guest, everyone has a vice."

And in her great chambers,

They gathered for some sweets,

They try to fight all her temptations,

But their wills she soon defeats

Last thing I remember, I was

Galloping for the door

I had to find an escape back

To the plains I was before

"Relax, " said the night mare,

"This is the paradise we’ve achieved.

So you can check-out any time you like,

But you can never leave! "


Here's the original Hotel California, BTW.



Edited a bit to help the flow. I'll probably be editing a lot in the coming days. :P
