There’s A Small Hotel

Today’s song dates from 1936. There’s A Small Hotel was written by Rodgers and Hart and was included in the musical On Your Toes. It also featured in the 1957 film version of Pal Joey. There’s A Small Hotel has been performed by many artists both as a slow, jazzy number and in a more up tempo version, but it’s Ella Fitzgerald’s version which I know best and which I’ve tried to recreate with my performance.

There are more songs from the 1930s here. If it’s your first time on the site, find out more about the 365 Songs project or see all of my September songs here.
