    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Because of You” is a popular song. It was written by Arthur Hammerstein and Dudley Wilkinson in 1940. It was used in the 1951 film I Was an American Spy.

    A 1951 recording by Tony Bennett (Columbia Records catalog number 39362, recorded April 4, 1951) was the first major hit for him, reaching number one on the Billboard charts and staying there for ten weeks. A cover version by Johnny Desmond reached number seventeen at the same time. The song was also covered that year by Gloria DeHaven (Decca catalog number 27666) and by Louis Armstrong (Decca catalog number 27816). The same year, this song was also covered by Les Baxter (Capitol catalog number 1681). Also in 1951, Tab Smith released an R&B instrumental version which hit number one on the R&B chart and number twenty on the pop chart. Jimmy Velvet (1958), recorded at Gold Star Studios in Hollywood. This was the flip side of “Blue Velvet”.

    Because of You is the debut album by American singer Tony Bennett. It was originally released in 1952 on Columbia as CL 6221, then reissued in 1956 (CL 2550) as part of “House Party Series”.
