Hotel Aruba,”You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave”



Aruba Hotel dejavu V

(Vanderbilt – ‘06)

More great work from Vanderbilt – ‘06. So many inferences to chose from; The Hotel California, The Bates Motel or the Roach Motel. Take your pick. The subtlties of art are that some things are best left unsaid and left to the imagination of the individual. Case and point, “Der Aruba Hotel”. So many lyrics, slogans and tag lines can be interpreted in so many ways. You decide.


(The Eagles)

Last thing I remember, I was runnin’ for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
“Good night” said the night man “We are programmed to receive
You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave”

The Roach Motel

 “Roaches check in — but they don’t check out!”
