Are You Lonesome Tonight


Whilst "Are You Lonesome Tonight" is remembered as a big hit for Elvis, this version is nothing like it. It has been given an extreme makeover, and arranged with a really catchy disco feel which the band states clearly from the first beat of the chart. The opening vocal chorus is followed by an instrumental chorus, with the brass taking the lead, then handing the baton over to the saxes for their turn. The vocalist re-enters with the middle 8, then takes things up a step for the final half chorus. The vocal key is C modulating to D, and there are no sax doubles.
