"How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" is a song originally recorded by Laura Branigan in 1983. The second single from Branigan's second solo album Branigan 2, it spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts. It was a Top 10 hit on the ARC Weekly Top 40 chart and peaked at #12 on the Hot 100. Branigan's single also hit the #1 spot on the Adult Contemporary charts in Canada. This success came without benefit of a music video. Michael Bolton co-wrote the song, and it was his first major hit as a songwriter. The song was originally offered to Air Supply, but after rejection was later offered to Branigan.
In 1989, Bolton recorded his own version of the song, and it hit #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts in 1990. This marked the second time the song had topped the U.S. adult contemporary chart.
British singer Newton has recorded a dance version of the track.
In 2004, J Costa did a remake of "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You", with Mr Mig and DJ Holland doing the remixes that received much air play. One of the top dance songs of that year.
