Without You

Without You by Mariah Carey was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 19, 1994 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This gut-wrenching ballad was originally released by Badfinger in 1970 and appeared on their second album, No Dice. Badfinger members Peter Ham and Tom Evans wrote it. Ham had written a song called "Is This Love?" but wasn't happy with the chorus. Evans came up with the "I can't live if living is without you" chorus but had no verses for it, so they put the two songs together as one. Mariah Carey's version debuted at #1 in the UK in 1994 and hit #3 in the US. Nilsson died of heart failure on January 15, 1994 - the same day Carey's version was released in the US. Later in 1994, Nilsson's version was reissued to take advantage of the renewed interest.
