Get up and go in 2014 with Travelodge – that’s the message from this TV ad for the budget hotel chain. The song used in the ad is It’s Oh So Quiet by Betty Hutton, a US singer and actress who was popular in the 1940s and 50s. It was released as a single in 1951. Modern listeners might be more familiar with a version of the song by Icelandic avant-garde pop star Bjork, which was a top 5 UK hit in 1995. But the song actually has German origins. It was first released as Und Jetzt ist es Still by Horst Winter in 1948. Betty Hutton’s version, as featured in the Travelodge ad, is available to download from iTunes.
