While I was initially put off by the ridiculous "First new music in 15 years" hype surrounding its release, I found the song itself to be immediately attractive and also quite haunting once I'd listened to it a few times.

Yes, the beguiling intro really draws you into the song and there's a killer chord change in the chorus which occurs on the word "Rome".

That chord change takes you by surprise.....typical Bacharach !

A song that lingers long in the memory.

'blue'

My initial reaction was, "Nice, but nothing special" but after a few listens I loved it. I hope the rest are this good.

I think it's easily the best song I've heard from Bacharach since the still yet to be recorded 'With A Voice' was premiered in London two years ago.

In the bridge after the line, "And the bells ring out their reminder", there's a bell-like figure played on the keyboards that reminds me of a very similar effect in the song 'In The Darkest Place' after the line, "There's light enough to find my way", at the end of the second verse:

You're right, Pljms.
They really look alike, about a bell-like figure!
Good perception!
