There is a song I sang when I was 9 years old “Without You” the version I was introduced to was performed by Mariah Carey but initially it was written and performed by Harry Nilsson.

He definitely loved song writing, type of suffered from social anxiousness and focused a lot of his profession on the art and finish solution not definitely becoming renowned. It is a song my whole loved ones can not listen to without having crying. I was bullied fairly badly just after singing that song at my schools talent show so the song represents far more than just my 9 year old singing voice. It is incredibly specific to me.
