This song was first recorded by Olivia Newton John, and then covered by Elvis Presley the following year, which tells you a good deal about the range of voices and performing personas it can suit. The arrangement was commissioned to form part of the polecat collection (common repertoire that all members can sing together) for the Ladies Association of Barbershop Singers, and is thus designed to be accessible to singers and audiences alike.

Here is a video of it in that role, sung by the massed voices of participants at a LABBS education day in 2015.
