Without You

Carrying on the theme of Valentines songs, I have to visit ont that can literally stop me dead in my tracks. It wasnt until the late 80’s that I even knew who the singer was, but it’s one that pulls tears from a deep place inside. I remember walking around campus in the summer of ’89, and hearing it from one of the dorm windows. I didnt know who the singer was, but it was that song again, and I loitered randomly outside a window in Surrey Court until the song was finished!

According to Wikipedia it’s been recorded by more than 180 artists!

The definitive version that gets me every time was a hit in 1971 for Harry Nillson

For reference though, here’s a few other recordings, none of which quite live up to Nillson.

Nolwen Leroy

Kelly Clarkson

Mariah Carey

Air Supply
