One of Barry Manilow's friends was inside of a gift and card shop one evening shopping for a "I miss you" card for Barry, as they were now far away from each other. He purchased a card that read "I can't smile without you" and sent it to Manilow. Barry read the card, got an idea, and showed it to record executive Clive Davis who thought it was a wonderful song. It proved to be a worldwide hit.
