Why do I - Golden Earring

Released as the second single from their 1986 album 'The hole', 'Why do I' was a slightly formulaic rock ballad by the Golden Earring. The band were not known for their ballads, but through the years they'd recorded quite a few.

Releasing one as a single was not a good idea, though: 'Why do I' failed to chart when it was released in August 1986. The third single from the album, 'They dance', also failed to chart, and the band disappeared from view for two years after that.

My collection: 7" single no. 433
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, 1986
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Why do I' / 'Gimme a break (Rock version)'
