Isn't it romantic? A very catchy strain! I think I'll take that down. A-B-A-G-F-E-D-C-C-A-A-B flat. . .

Is it really possible that the soundtrack is a whole tone below actual sound?
The actual notes are a Major Second *above* what is written -- in D -- B-C#-B-A-G-F#-E-D-D-B-B-C.
That last two notes are a downward Major Seventh, which is VERY difficult to sing. The actor/singer does it quite well...

Thank you for the analysis, Lew. I am surprised by the discrepancy in the transcription. It is certainly very difficult to sing and that may be one reason you are likelier to hear it as an instrumental rather than a vocal. DL
