This morning an undisputed classic for you delictation.
It’s a song often covered, to the point where I would struggle to say whose version I prefer. If pushed, I would probably plump for Dean Martin’s, but this version could easily push his into second on a good day. I think it’s the slightly wonky xylophone which does it for me:

Sometimes you have to take a step back and reappraise a song.
For a good while, tonight’s choice became so associated with desperate wannabes auditioning for The X Factor that I couldn’t stand to listen to it.
But it came up on my shuffle earlier and I had forgotten what a stunningly great record it is.
