    One of the better cover versions.
    I think Arlen is a great player and musician, but this is one song IMO that is impossible to improve upon. It was perfection the first time.

    Agree with Slowpoke. Admirable chops, but this simpler version's my favourite. With none other than Dave Edmunds on rhythm guitar.

    Then don’t listen to this, especially around 3:05!

    And going the other way is this version by Junior Brown, which fits beautifully with the scenes of insomnia.
