A World Without Love was the very first single ever released by the British duo Peter And Gordon way back in 1964. Paul McCartney actually wrote this song.

The song was a #1 in the UK and the US.

McCartney was dating Peter's sister at the time and moved in with her when he was 16. Paul didn't think the song was good enough for his new band The Beatles so he gave the song to Peter Asher who had just landed a recording contract with his duo partner Gordon Waller.

The song is found on their album of the same name.
