P robably the creepiest song they’ve ever written, edging out “Witchy Woman” by a few bats’ wings at least. Speculation about the track has always run rampant, prompting me to check out what the Internet had to say about the matter. Lo and behold, I found the Urban Legends Reference Pages, with its own furnished room from Hotel California. Very interesting stuff, especially for aspiring acolytes of evil who might accidentally burn a taper to this topper. The song originally appeared alongside Pretty Maids and was later issued as a twofer with New Kid.
