The selection this week departs somewhat from all others that have appeared before in this series. This classic song has been more frequently covered by far than any other song this writer has encountered to date. This song, which seems to lend itself to multiple arrangements, has been a personal favorite of this writer, who has attempted various keyboard arrangements of it since his teenage years.  Each time, new possibilities seem to present themselves.
