I guess that's why they call it the blues - Elton John

'I guess that's why they call it the blues' was released in 1983 as a single from Elton John's album 'Too low for zero'. The track features Stevie Wonder on harmonica and received favourable reviews from the moment it was released. It has gone on to be one of Elton John's most-played songs on radio stations from the Eighties portion of his career.

The single reached number 5 in the UK singles chart and number 4 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, but failed to reach the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 1037
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 17, 1989
Cost: 30p
Tracks: 'I guess that's why they call it the blues' / 'Choc ice goes mental' (Lord Choc Ice)
