Then there was the jazz sax player who was down on his luck in London and decided to jump out a window, sax in hand. When he stepped onto the ledge he saw a perfect rainbow, and he started playing this song. The problem was, he couldn't remember the bridge, so he kept repeating the A section. People down on the street started yelling, "play the bridge, play the bridge!" In frustration he leapt.
Lying on the ground, barely conscious, he heard the ambulance approaching ... DOO-dee DOO-dee DOO-dee
I like the horn work, but a bit flashy for how I hear this song. I believe the definitive version is from the movie, but I offer up this interpretation by Keith Jarrett for your listening, my favorite (along with the IZ rainbow/wonderful world mashup) --
This should probably be here for completeness- many of you have doubtless heard it. To me, attempts to change the phrasing or actual tune around have generally been counterproductive, she nailed it the first time
OK, she could have done a bit more with that "lemon drops" section.
