"Who Can I Turn To?" is a popular song. It may be titled "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)".
It was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley and published in 1964. The song was introduced in the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd, which struggled in the United Kingdom in 1964 and then made a tour of the United States later that year. In 1964 Shirley Bassey recorded the song and released it as a single, however it failed to chart. Recorded by Tony Bennett, "Who Can I Turn To?" became a hit, reaching number 33 on the US pop singles chart and the top 5 of the Adult Contemporary chart. So fuelled, the musical arrived on Broadway for a successful run, and the song became one of Bennett's staples. He later, re-recorded the song as a duet with Cuban-American pop superstar, Gloria Estefan as part of his 2012 album, Viva Duets.
American tenor Jan Peerce recorded "Who Can I Turn To?" for his 1965 album Pop Goes Peerce. Dionne Warwick covered the song for her 1965 album, The Sensitive Sound of Dionne Warwick. Her version reached No. 62 pop and No. 34 R&B. Wynton Marsalis covered it on his first, eponymous album (1981).
