Sinatra was notoriously anti-rock -- but the album on which this song was released was evidently an attempt to cross over ever so slightly from the pop standard genre which was so totally his, to make at least a mild appeal to rock music fans. Hardly a rock album, it was at least filled with songs whose arrangements had far more in common with rock era ballads than with pop standards. Some worked better than others; this one wasn't bad.
