About Why

"Why" is a song performed by Carly Simon, recorded for the film Soup for One in 1982. The movie flopped but the soundtrack was a success. The song is one of many film-inspired singles by Simon. The song, like the rest of the soundtrack, was produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic. This was a move away from the usual guitar-based hits of Simon's past. The bittersweet reggae-tinged ballad became a hit in Europe, hitting #10 in the UK, and staying on the British charts for 18 weeks. The song peaked at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100, and remained on the chart for 6 weeks. In 1989, the song re-surfaced on the Ibiza "Hacienda" scene, and cemented its status as a Balearic classic. Known for its bass-line and funky drums, it was then that the growing hip-hop scene in the USA began to pick it up, seven years after its original release. The song re-entered the UK charts the same year, reaching #56.

Why does your love hurt so much?
Why?
Why does you love hurt so much?
Don't know why

You know I loved you baby
But all the while you just betrayed me
In the world of a day
All the things that you said were

You said our love was secret
But you left me alone to make it
You want to come back again someday
But darling here's what I say
