Por Una Cabeza
by Carlos Gardel
#Original

Wiki:
"Por una Cabeza" is one of the most popular of all Carlos Gardel tangos.  The title is a horse racing term "to lose by a head."  The lyrics lament a man's life by comparing losing at the race track to losing with women. "Por una Cabeza" was written in 1935 by Carlos Gardel and Alfredo Le Pera, shortly before both died in a plane crash in Columbia on June 24, 1935.

"Por una Cabeza" is a slow tango with a clear rhythm, making it easy to dance to.  As a result, almost all of the major orchestras of the 40's and 50's recorded it. 

Hollywood has often used this tango. Tango scenes with "Por una Cabeza" appear in the following movies :
Scent of a Woman (1992) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2zTd_YwTvo (starting at 01.40)
