Joe Cocker – You Are So Beautiful

“You Are So Beautiful” is a song written by Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher. Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys contributed to the song’s genesis, but his official credit was omitted.

In 1975, the Joe Cocker version was released as a single and peaked number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 12 on the Easy Listening chart. The Cocker version helped the album become successful and was his biggest hit until his duet with Jennifer Warnes, “Up Where We Belong”, which reached #1 in 1982.
