This song should have been a radio hit... "The Reason Why" has had several versions of lyrics since it's first version at the counter of Canter's in Hollywood, where he met a Jewish princess and her sister. Then each new girlfriend he got inspired him to change the lyrics. There are probably six versions of this song.
