This week's contestant is Katherine Oxnard Ellis from Savannah, Georgia. As I was listening to the song and got it quickly, I knew that this is a song one will either know almost instantly, and with a smile, or you won't know it at all. And later, in discussing the song with Ms. Oxnard Ellis as she tries to guess it, composer/pianist Bruce Adolphe makes that very point. And she does eventually get it. The composer style is very gettable, but not obvious.
