I have to admit that Harry Nilsson's version is what comes to mind first for me. It's the one I would vote most likely to make me sob. LOL And Paul McCartney voted it "the killer song of all time." Not sure if he was referring to a particular version when he said that but in general it really is a fantastic song.



This is the way I first heard Without You...

This often-covered song was originally done by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs in 1960. This is by far my favorite version.

Right, mate.   Al Jardine and Ron Altbach took credit for writing that one.  Toni Wine and Carole Bayer Sager took credit for A Groovy Kind Of Love...
