s t a h T f Analysis o Duple meter with triple subdivision The musical form is AABA form with a I-vi-IV-V Progression. The musical texture is melody and accompaniment homophony o The main melody is with Sinatras singing while the backup singers, trumpets, and organ play a simpler melody in the background. There is a backbeat with the snare drum The backup singers harmonize chords with each other There is a key change near the end of the song The song ends with a nice cadence from the organ Tempo is relatively slow and the rhythm is kept through the drums, trumpet, and organ 1 . t p
