“Por Una Cabeza” from Scent of a Woman


Tenor Andrea Bocelli performs the tango song “Por Una Cabeza” from Scent of a Woman (1992). The song, comparing an addiction to horse racing with an attraction to women, was written in 1935 by two men central to tango in Argentina: singer and composer Carlos Gardel and lyricist Alfredo Le Pera. The same year the song was recorded, the two died in a plane crash along with other tango musicians.

Dancers Paul Karmiryan and Tiffany Maher perform the passionate dance of tango alongside Bocelli in Andrea Bocelli: Cinema.
