Carly Simon – Why (12″ Mirage K 79300T)

Pouty mouth slightly agape, top two shirt buttons undone, the sexy Steven Tyler manque and former Mrs. James Taylor wonders precisely why it is that my love hurts her so much.

Frankly, if you have to ask, Carly, you’ll never understand.

Nice enough chorus, but if this supposedly Chic produced reggae inflected early 80s bollocks includes any of Tony Thompson’s actual drums among all that over-egged electronic percussion clatter, I’ll eat my leopard printed hat.

  1. errr..i quite like that tune actually (hangs head in shame)

  2. The tune, i.e. the melody, isn’t bad, it’s the production I find so disappointing.
