Torn Between Two Lovers

"Torn Between Two Lovers" is the title of a pop song written by Peter Yarrow (of the folk music trio Peter, Paul & Mary). It was inspired by Boris Pasternak's 1957 novel, Dr. Zhivago, which featured a man in love with two women. Yarrow originally intended the song to be sung by a man. It was recorded by St. Paul, Minnesota-born singer Mary MacGregor in 1976, and was #1 on the U.S. pop and adult contemporary charts for two weeks in February of 1977. The song inspired the title of a feature film released in 1979, starring Lee Remick, George Peppard, and Joseph Bologna. The 1976 recording was used in a television commercial in 2006.
