Music by Neil Sedaka
Lyrics by Phlip Cody
This is one of Karen’s finest performances, even though, to my amazement, she was not that taken with the song.  This is the single version, available on CD for the first time in this collection.  It is most easily differentiated from the album version by the entrance of the electric guitar 8 bars earlier, leading into the first chorus, and the addition of a pipe organ in the second half of the second chorus, the third chorus, and the last two bars.  The mix is virtually identical to that on the album.  Why I felt that those two additions were worth all the trouble and expense incurred is beyond me now.
