"Hotel Mario Theme" - Little Women (1933)
So ever listened to Hotel Mario’s theme and thought “hey this sounds kinda catchy and good”?
Well did you know the song actually dates back as far as 1933 in a film adaptation of Little Women? It’s performed at a party, and as far as I know, is never listed in the film’s soundtrack or in any credits. The audio’s taken straight from the film so pardon the dialogue included with the song, haha.
I wish I knew the tune’s origins though. I’ve made some extensive searches, but no luck. It sounds German, but that’s as far as I have guessed. I think the most accurate answer is the Phillips CDI was actually built in the 30s and Hotel Mario was just in development hell for all that time, but y’know, who knows.
If anyone’s got any clue what the song is though, please tell me! It’s been on my mind for years now!
