After a grand orchestral introduction, this little waltz gets going in the usual 3/4 time signatures but doesn't seem to be able to stay there, straying into 4/4, 2/4, 5/4 and eventually 5/8. This gives it an unsettled feel - a bit like the effect caused by a scratch on an old vinyl record.
I'd love to see contestants on "Strictly Come Dancing" trying to keep in step with it.
