Music To Watch Hotels By

Theme

The theme tune for Weird & Wonderful Hotels is finally finished and sounds fantastic! But don’t take my word for it, use the media player below to listen for yourself!

Produced by Chris Lewis and Sleepydog’s Mark Hilton, the brief was to create a toe tapping melody that would stay with the viewer long after they’ve watched the show. And if the number of people whistling it in our office is anything to go by, I think they’ve succeeded!

Be sure to tell us what you think of the theme tune in the comments box below.
