The song is a ballad, with McKellar comparing a man without love and a man with love. He explains that a man without love is "only half a man, this nothing", and a man "with love is everything in life".
It was performed eighteenth and last on the night, following Ireland's Dickie Rock with "Come Back to Stay". At the close of voting, it had received eight points (five from Ireland and three from Luxembourg), placed ninth in a field of 18 (the worst placing for the United Kingdom until 1978.
Note: This is not the Italian composition, "Quando M'innamoro", by Livraghi/Pace/Panzeri that was associated with the 1968 Sanremo Music Festival and sung by The Sandpipers. This 1968 song is a later version recorded by Engelbert Humperdinck and Sergio Franchi, among others, also titled "A Man Without Love".
