Songs

Without You

Recorded/Published: June 1971
Nilsson Schmilsson
Nilsson Schmilsson
Pete Ham and Tom Evans wrote "Without You" and recorded it with their group Badfinger. It appears on their album No Dice which was released in November of 1970.

The song was called "It's Love" when Ham oroginally wrote it. Evans later added the chorus and the song was recorded as a last-minute addition to the No Dice album.

"I was at a friend's house in Laurel Canyon and we were playing records. Late at night, we're sitting on the floor, and I heard this thing in the background and it said 'you ....' And I thought it was a Lennon song. The next day I called and said, 'What was that song that went 'you...'? I think it's Lennon and it could be from a Beatles album.' So everybody got fifteen people looking through Beatles albums. They came back to me and said, 'Well, they have a lot of songs with 'you' in them.' Then I thought, 'I know, it's by Grapefruit.' And so we went through all that again. And then someone else came up with Badfinger. So I got the album and it wasn't as good as I remembered it. It was real flat. But I still called up my producer, Richard Perry, and said, 'I think I got one here.' He heard it and agreed with me, so we recorded it." -- Harry

Harry Nilsson recorded "Without You" for his 1971 album Nilsson Schmilsson.

"I burst a gigantic hemorhoid on that big top note." -- Harry

"Without You" was Harry Nilsson's biggest hit and earned Harry a Grammy.

Melody Maker and Disc named the song "Record of the Year."

No, I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving.
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
