Name the song Wikipedia is describing.

Let’s all have a small modicum of fun. Robert Fripp-style. I’ll post a description of a song from Wikipedia with all names removed, and you, brave musician, tell me (without cheating by using Google) what the song is. Here we go.

XXX is a song in the key of G major. Each cadential six-measure  phrase is constructed using a change of meter on the fourth measure and uses a I–IV–V–VI chord progression. G major and C major chords are played for one and two 4/4 measures respectively. xxxxx then uses a deceptive cadence after a 2/4 measure of the dominant D major chord, leading into two 4/4 measures of an E major  chord. The song moves at 160 beats per minute, and xxxxx’s vocal range spans more than an octave and a half, from B3 to G5.
