Accuracy/Arrangement not quite right
If this song is being sold as the Connie Francis version of this song, I feel that it should be arranged so it matches her original key and "feel". Im using this song for an audition piece as a 50s/60s song, and I was very disappointed to see that this arrangement doesnt capture the swung 12/8 feel [with the high octave, repeated 8th notes in the right hand that you can hear on the recordings (and many other songs from this era)]. This version is in a slow 4/4, but they dont attempt to capture the right "feel" by doing a quarter note triplet/eighth note/eighth rest/quarter note triplet/eighth note/eighth rest pattern. Also, this piece says the original published key is Bb, but Connies recording of this is actually in G (luckily, this is offered as a transposition option [-3 half steps].) BUT for unsuspecting singers who maybe dont do a lot of music theory or play piano, they wont know that they arent buying the same key as theyve heard Connie sing AND the arrangement wont sound like what theyre hoping for. This arrangement is way too simplified (mostly half and quarter notes) and has no "swung" feel.
