"Without You" by Harry Nilsson


"Without You" [...] is just the killer song of all time.

-- Paul McCartney[1]


"Without You" is beautiful music, profound lyrics, beautiful song; the kind of 45 rpm that you buy and play over and over until it's ruined the first day.

-- Jann Snell[2]


Nilsson's recording of "Without You" was nominated for the "Hit Single" award in 1972 by the National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM).[3] Don McLean's "American Pie" won the award. [4]
