Flying Without Wings

Flying Without Wings by Westlife was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 30, 1999 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song was a huge hit for the Irish boy band Westlife. It was voted "Song Of The Year" 1999 in the ITV end of year phone music poll. A monster hit in Europe, this song was little-known in America, so when Ruben Studdard sang it on the finale of American Idol Season 2 in 2003, it was the first time most of the viewers heard the song. This was written by Steve Mac and Wayne Hector in about three hours. This song says that the happiness you get from children, friendship and being with your lover is like flying without wings. In 2004 Westlife recorded a special live version of this song which had the honor of being the first ever official download #1 in the UK.
