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.
On Friday we headed down to the studio to record the theme tune for Weird & Wonderful Hotels.
Written by Sleepydog’s very own Mark Hilton, the surf-rock inspired track is one you’re sure to be humming long after you’ve watched the show!
A massive thank you to everyone involved for all their fantastic work.
