It's as authentic argentine tango as Mantovani's jazz
or Liberace's classics.

it's Gardel's the scent of women, this is striking to me because it was used in "Schindler's List"

I found this:
"Por una Cabeza", meaning in Spanish "by a head [of a horse]" is a popular tango song composed in 1935 by Carlos Gardel and Alfredo Le Pera. Gardel was more of the composer and Le Pera more of the lyricist.
...
It has been performed by numerous tango orchestras and lately is commonly featured in films and television not only because its undisputed quality but also for its free copyright after Gardel and Le Pera's 50 years death. Tango scenes with "Por una Cabeza" appears in episode 37 of Nip/Tuck, as well as in Schindler's List, Scent of a Woman [1],True Lies, All the King's Men (2006 film), Deep Throat[citation needed] and episode 9 of Sweet Spy (2005 Korean drama). Additionally, this song is played in the movie Bad Santa when Billy Bob Thornton's character is rummaging through a wealthy homeowner's den looking for a safe to rob.

As written before, it's actually Por una cabeza, by Gardel and Le Pera.


thanks  :)

who wants to explain me what does "by head of a horse" mean  ? should i take it primary meaning ?

Complete lyrics and and a very good recording here.

I'm sure the expression involves races, horses, bets and someone who loses money as his horse didn't make it.

(I'm sure Carlos, porteño viejo as he is, can explain this better).

Why?.Do you hate him?.

On horse races language, "por una cabeza" means that the
winner crosses the end line just the long of a horse head
ahead the second.

no, not all all. what i meant is that he is not really a "classical" composer, and he is mainly known for only a few very popular works.
