"You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You" is a popular song written by Russ Morgan, Larry Stock, and James Cavanaugh and published in 1944.

The song was first recorded by Morgan and was a hit for him in 1946, reaching the No. 14 spot in the charts.[1] It has been covered by numerous artists[2] and is best known in versions by Dean Martin, who recorded it for Capitol Records in 1960 and Reprise Records in 1964, and by the Mills Brothers (1954).[3]

Dean Martin's 1964 version spent 9 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 25,[4] while reaching No. 1 on Billboard's Middle-Road Singles chart,[5][6][7] and No. 28 on Canada's CHUM Hit Parade.[8]

It was the B-side to Frankie Vaughan's hit single "There Must Be a Way", which broke into the UK top ten in 1967[9].

A cover by Ray Price peaked at number 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1986.[10]
