7-inch series, part 638

Carly Simon/Chic – Why/Why Instrumental
label: WEA
year: 1982
side a: Carly Simon – Why
side b: Chic – Why Instrumental


“Why” is one of those songs that somehow have always been around in my head, without me ever really thinking about it, or buying it. Then one day I heard the “Why Edit” version of A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Bonita Applebum” again and I thought
Have I not
This single?
Don’t know why”
So I went out and bought it. Because it’s beautiful.

It’s produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards from Chic, who play the instrumental version on the B-side. “Why” is part of the original soundtrack to Soup for One, which is really good. The soundtrack, I mean. Haven’t seen the film.

You gotta love this video, too.
