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
- 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?
