From Justin Timberlake's album Justified, this song makes an obvious reference to the 1950s ballad of the same title. Whilst it contains a similar emotional theme, the narrative that unfolds is quite different, as are the musical gestures of popular music 50 years on from the older song. The arrangement borrows a lot of the motifs from Timberlake's recording and weaves them into a texture that develops in complexity until the very end where it dissolves back into nothing.
