Tony Hatch's 1964 classic is given an adventurous arrangement which goes beyond a basic, microwaveable 'gig-convenient' treatment. Although it requires technical skill and proper ensemble rehearsal the arrangement sets out to be grateful and rewarding to play. A slow introduction, suggesting the melancholy of solitude ('When you're alone and life is making you lonely...'), with wisps of the main melody drifting in and out, leads into the song itself in faster tempo, bringing the consolation of bright lights and urban bustle.
This would make an excellent concert item or encore - or indeed, once mastered, a very suitable piece of gig repertoire.
Duration: about 2½ minutes
