Redfella’s Pick of the Day

Don’t Ask Me Why” is a Billy Joel song released in 1980. The song talks about the oddities of life that have become obvious over time. It is more characteristic of a track that would have appeared on Joel’s earlier albums in that it has a lighter folk sound as compared to the harder, more rock oriented tracks found throughout the album. The background track contains all acoustic and Latin percussion instruments performing in an Afro-Cuban rhythmic style. An eclectic, instrumental “Latin Ballroom” piano solo, played over the bridge section after the second verse, is also featured part of the song.

It was included on the album Glass Houses and later on Greatest Hits Volume 2 and was the last single released from the Glass Houses LP.

The song reached # 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and # 1 on the US Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks.
