This is a full 45-measure rendition of the slow (1975) version of Neil Sedaka's signature song spanning 6 octaves in the keys of G and Ab in Allcanplay format.

Allcanplay is a play-by-picture system created in the early 1980s that:
* Lets beginners play popular tunes and develop good finger coordination before or while learning to read music.
* Allows more experienced pianists to play songs that stretch their current sight-reading ability.
* Permits sight readers to convert difficult songs into picture form and improve their music-reading skills in the process.

Each note of a song is indicated by finger letters (e.g., T=Thumb) and timing (e.g., 1+2+) marked on stacked keyboard diagrams with rainbow-shaded octaves that make it easy to tell them apart. (See link below to "rainbowize" your keyboard to match.)

Unlike lighted-key or falling-note music, Allcanplay doesn't disappear after you play it. It's like a chord chart or guitar tablature but for every note in a song.

To gain a feel for the expressive tempo of this song, here’s the linkto an audio performance by the master himself, Neil Sedaka:
