This tale of heartbreak was sung by Engelbert Humperdinck for the United Kingdom entry to the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest held in Baku, Azerbaijan. The BBC unveiled the tune on March 19, 2012 on their Eurovision homepage.
The song ultimately placed 25th out of the 26 songs sung during the Eurovision final. It received just 12 points - from Estonia, Latvia, Belgium and Ireland.
When his participation was announced, the then 75-year-old Humperdinck was set to become the oldest singer to ever participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. However, shortly afterwards it was announced that Natalya Pugachyova, who is several months older, would represent Russia as part of the band Buranovskiye Babushki, and would take the record as oldest singer in the contest. Humperdinck still remains both the oldest male and oldest solo singer to take part.
Swedish born Martin Terefe, who has also worked with Jason Mraz, Jamie Cullum, KT Tunstall and Train, produced the song. It was co-written by Sacha Skarbek, who also co-penned James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" and Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die."
