The Belmonts Tell Me Why

The Belmonts Tell Me Why

Doo Wop

The Belmonts and Dion DiMucci had gone their separate ways in 1960 due to different views of where they wanted to go with their music. The Belmonts, now the trio of Angelo D’Aleo, Fred Milano, and Carlo Mastrangelo, had a hit with “Tell Me Why” in 1961. It went to #18 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Carlo Mastrangelo sang bass when he was with Dion and The Belmonts. He sang lead for The Belmonts until he left them in 1962 to pursue a solo career. He was involved with Dion as a songwriter, backup volcalist and drummer in the group “Dion and the Wanderers.” They collaborated many times over the years. Mastrangelo was also the lead vocalist for “The Endless Pulse” (aka “Pulse”). He continued to sing, perform, and record over the years.

R.I.P. Carlo Mastrangelo (October 5, 1938 – April 4, 2016)

Here are the lyrics:

Tell my why
Why the stars in the sky
Are the same kind of stars
That I see in your eyes
I love you, yes, I do
Oh, won’t you tell me why

Tell my why
Tell me why, tell me why
Why my heart skips a beat
Every time that you’re near
Every time that we meet

I love you, yes, I do
Oh, won’t you tell me why
Tell me why

Tell me why, I love you so
You know my heart
Will never let you go

You know my love for you
Is on the square
When I wake up in the morning
I find you right there

Tell me why, tell me why
Why my heart skips a beat
Every time that you’re near
Every time that we meet

I love you, yes, I do
Oh, won’t you tell me why
Tell me why

Tell me why, I love you so
You know my heart
Will never let you go

You know my love for you Is on the square
When I wake up in the morning
I want you right there

Tell me why, tell me why
Why my heart skips a beat
Every time that you’re near
Every time that we meet

I love you, yes, I do
Oh, won’t you tell me why
Tell me why…

For More Golden Oldies Music       

The Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has daily featured doo wop, rock and roll, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.
