A very single-minded test on the Rolling Stones worldwide singles' discography.
'I Don't Know Why' was released as a 7" single in the UK on May 23, 1975.
Its US counterpart, released at the same time, reached #42.
'I Don't Know Why' - sometimes listed as 'I Don't Know Why I Love You' - is a 1968 song by Stevie Wonder, from the album 'For Once in My Life' and was the B-Side of the 1969 hit 'My Cherie Amour'. The song was recorded when Stevie was only 18 years old.
The Rolling Stones' version was recorded on June 30, 1969. The band was mixing the song when they learned that Brian Jones had died [July 3, 1969].
The single was released worldwide in 1975 with 'Try A Little Harder' on B-side, a 1964 number from the vaults where Mick Jagger would actually be the only band member to perform. Both tracks were extracted from the 'Metamorphosis' compilation album out that same year .
The single only entered the charts in the US.
