What music arrangers can do

Remember The Beatles’ “Ticket to Ride?” Very upbeat tempo, right? Have you ever heard Richard Carpenter’s arrangement? There’s a poignancy and sense of foreboding about this version that I really like.

The video’s cheesy (hey, it was 1969!), but the recording is excellent.
