"Another Suitcase in Another Hall" was released as a European single, and was the third European hit from the soundtrack to Evita. The single includes three other tracks from the film, resulting in its being more of a mini-hits package than anything else. Included is the album version of the song, which finds Madonna giving an understated and inspired performance. The single edit of the dance version of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" is included, as well as the soundtrack's first hit, "You Must Love Me," both of which were hits in the U.S. To round out the package is the soundtrack's "Hello and Goodbye." "Another Suitcase in Another Hall," although a small hit in Europe, is virtually unknown to American audiences (unless one is a fan of the musical). One hopes that this overlooked gem might find its way onto future Madonna hits collections, because it is truly a wonderful song.
