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

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
