God yes!! I always thought that that was phenomenal and added so much to the song.

Then, of course, I love how Burt uses those sustained chords for the bridge. It's always been one of my favorites. Very high on my list of Burt/Hal songs. But if it doesn't have that magic of Burt's arrangement, then it loses a lot.

Thanks! I will be doing a Zoom charitable benefit concert exclusively performing songs by Burt and Hal in late November. I will post about it here.
