So what would you choose?

We're staying in a "boutique" hotel here in Yorkshire and I'm intrigued by the selection of CDs and DVDs in our room.  I wondered how accurately  they reflect the interests/taste of the guests here and whether they are aimed more at their desired target group.  Most of the guests here are around our age or even slightly older - couples in their 50s I'd say, with the odd exception, both older and younger.

The music CD box contains:

  • American Life,  Madonna
  • Spiritus, ?
  • Ladies and Gentlemen, the best of George Michael
  • Berlioz, Symphonie Fantastique
  • Bocelli, Sogno
  • Songs in the Key of Life, Stevie Wonder
  • Come Away with Me, Norah Jones
  • Live at Knebworth, Robbie Williams

The DVD movie box contains:

  • Y tu Mama Tambien
  • 9 1/2 weeks
  • Some Like it Hot
  • English Patient
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Jamon Jamon
  • Dirty Dancing
  • The Godfather
  • Casablanca
  • The Piano

I can't decide whether I think these choices are just too clever by half, revelaing great insight and some adventure, or that I could do better!  I think I would make some changes, most certainly - but I'd definitely keep such classics as Casablanca and Stevie Wonder.  What about you?  What do you think ought to be in there?

Incidentally, we've watched/listened to not a single one!  We've hardly been here, and when we have, we've been eating dinner - had the tasting menu with the wine choices tonight, for after all, when one's bedroom is only steps away, isn't it too good an opportunity to miss?


To "Brideshead" and beyond
