A grand ballad, musically and lyrically,
that only a singer of Perry's stature could essay.
 

Originally a popular Italian song, this intriguing tune was titled 'Un Uomo Tra la Folla', which translates roughly to 'A Man Against the Crowd', or, perhaps, 'One Man in Many'. But Robert I. Allen took what writers Renis, Mogol and Testa had composed and made it right for Perry. It's the old eternal triangle again, with Perry singing the role of the guy in the odd corner, trying to keep his love, despite what the other man has told her.
