Carly Simon-Why

Every pop artist has a few gems in their closet that were missed attempts to hit the chart and didnt quite make it, be it that they were bad, or just plain weird. This track is one of the latter; produced by Chic, this mellow electro reggae track just doesn't have the Carly Simon sound, and thus you wont find this on any or her greatest hits albums. Released as a single for a terrible movie called Soup For One back in 1982, the track didnt strike a chord with Simon's fans but somehow it made strides over time in the burgeoning hip hop scene of the mid eighties.
