I Don't Know Why (But I Do) can be heard on TV throughout the day on a commercial for some product or service, I don't care what. When I heard it I could recognize the Creole influence and knew it originated from New Orleans. It was released in late 1960 and reached No. 4 on the charts in 1961. it was recorded by Clarence "Frogman" Henry. Born in New Orleans, 1937, he was influenced by Fats Domino. He got his nickname from a gimmick he used in the 1956 song Ain't Got No Home. He is still with us and performs in New Orleans clubs at aged 82.
