"Without You"

OK, more 70's: This Ham/Evans composition was first recorded by Badfinger in '70. Described by Sir Paul as "the killer song of all-time". Harry Nilsson's version hit #1 in '72 and won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal. Mariah Carey's cover, her best-selling single outside the US, was released 1/15/94, the day Nilsson died and the 22nd anniversary of his recording reaching #1!

Yesterday's answer: "Suspicious Minds" My all-time favorite Elvis tune. Thank you, thank you very much! Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can cover Elvis without sounding like a buffoon. THE ONLY exception is Dwight - somehow he can do it and he makes it sound great!!!
