Description:Transcribed from Billy May's chart written for Anita O'Day, this chart takes a song that is more usually played as a very slow ballad into slow swing territory, where it sits very nicely. It is an out-and-out vocal feature, with no solo space for the intrumentalists, and only a four measure instrumental passage (in the style of the intro) to separate both halves of the vocal performance. The vocal part is scored "as sung" by Anita and there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is C throughout.
