The song "Without You" was written by Pete Ham and Tom Evans of the group Badfinger. It first appeared on their debut album "No Dice" in 1970.
"Without You" did not become a hit until it was covered by Harry Nilsson in 1971 on his album "Nilsson Schmilsson." The single spent four weeks at number one on the pop charts in the United States and five weeks on the United Kingdom charts. In 1994, the song became a hit again, this time for Maria Carey. "Without You" has been covered by more than 180 artists, and Paul McCartney once called it "the killer song of all time."
