One of the more complex arrangements. Each pitch of the melody was identified as belonging to one or the other of the two whole tone scales, and harmonized accordingly, resulting in a harmonic accompaniment constantly shifting between the two whole tone scales. Chord voicings are intentionally basic to highlight the shift between scales. The percussion and bass parts are a combination of the thumpity-thump-thump riff and the shifting tonality. The introduction is extrapolated from the first four measures of the tune.
