POR UNA CABEZA
Description

Details

It is well known that Gardel was a horse racing amateur, and so it is not unusual that in his compositions he frequently refereed to jockeys and horses. The Argentine tango "Por Una Cabeza" (By Just One Head) was composed for Gardel's last film, Tango Bar (1935), and was used more recently in the American film Scent of a Woman (1992) starring Al Pacino. In this tango, love and women are compared to the dangerous chance of a horse race, where luck is often elusive. Hence, the sub-title "Turf and Love are Dangerous."
