Downtown

As released by Petula Clark in 1964, this song by songwriter Tony Hatch reached number one on the Billboard charts. Something of a “Crossover” hit, Petula Clark’s main audience was primarily adult at the time, yet this track went on to become popular with listeners of all ages all over the world. The song was originally conceived as a likely number for the Drifters — not too hard to imagine.

My arrangement is for guitar, bass and drums. It strikes me as a combination of 60’s style guitar instrumentals and Johnny A. I played the guitar and bass parts, and programmed the drums using loops.
