Radio XLV, side B, track 1: “Don’t Ask Me Why” by Eurythmics

Eurythmics - Don't Ask Me WhyOh, Eurythmics, holy shit I love you.  I’d already been enamored with Annie thanks to the many times I recorded “Put A Little Love In Your Heart“, and one of my first recording experiences was when my best friend and I recorded ourselves singing “Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This” (sadly, or maybe not so sadly, that tape no longer exists), so I was already aware of who you were and how awesome you were.  But this was my first time recording your music off the radio.  And shamefully, I kinda forgot about this one, but I am pretty ecstatic that I’ve re-discovered this song again.  Well, as ecstatic as one can get about such a somber tune.  My God, it’s so goddamn good.  Annie, your voice. . .oh, your voice.  This is such a haunting, bitter, sad song, but I’ve gotta tell ya, Eurythmics, if someone was going to tell me they don’t love me anymore, this is the way I’d want to hear it.

Welcome to the blog, Eurythmics.  So happy to have you back in my life.

“Don’t Ask Me Why”

<awesome Eurythmics jam>

Miracle of miracles
Look what the night dragged in

It’s a pocket full of misery
Trouble on the wind

You spoiled the best years of your life
You took them all in vain

Now you think that you’re forgiven
But you can’t be born again, you say why

You say why

Ya say why

Don’t ask me whyyyy

I don’t love you anymore

Don’t think I ever did

And if you ever had any kind of love for me
Kept it all so well hiiid

Promises, sweet
Promises
You kept them from your mind

Like all the lost forgotten things
You never seemed to find

Like all the disappointments you displayed upon your shelf

Now you’ve got no one ta turn to
You’ve got no one but yourself
You say why

You say why

You say why

Don’t ask me whyyyy

I don’t love you anymore

I don’t think I ever did

And if you ever had any kind of love for me
You kept it all so well hiiid

<awesome Eurythmics jam>

You spoiled the best years of your life
You took them all in vain

Now you think that you’re forgiven
But you can’t be born again, you say

(Why why why why why why why why why why why why why why why)
You say
(Why why why why why why why why why why why why why why why)
I don’t love you anymore

Don’t love you anymore

I don’t love you anymore

I don’t love you anymore

Ya say why

You say why

You say why

Don’t ask me whyyyyyy

Ya say why

You say why

You say why

Don’t ask me whyyyy
