Julie London: Nice Girls Don’t Stay For Breakfast

The songs of l’Hôtel Bourg Tibourg, an Iggy Pop #PrivateJam, the legend of The Sugarhill Gang's Big Bank Hank and more in our weekly look at music

Hôtel Bourg Tibourg in Paris’ Marais district is letting guests take the hotel’s lobby “soundtrack” home with a mix compiled by Guillaume Sorge. The artistic director at Red Bull Studios Paris has selected 12 songs to take listeners through different decades, countries and styles, evoking the way the hotel’s ambience seems to suspend visitors in time and space. Featuring Julie London’s sultry jazz ballad “Nice Girls Don’t Stay For Breakfast” (1967) and underground Berlin-based electronic producer Siriusmo’s instrumental “Liu” (2013), find the vinyl box set limited to 1000 pressings in December at Paris boutique Colette and Hôtel Bourg Tibourg.
