Subject: need help with this 80s song

Written By: Lewiston39 on 09/27/05 at 1:17 am

Hey guys,

I have had this stuck in my head for 13 years, eversince I bought  styx albumn and thier version of "the Grand Illusion" was not what I remembered from my childhood.

This song may have been popular on adult contemporary or jazz stations in the 1980s...

I could possibly have some lyrics wrong. Plus I can only remember two real lines:

Nothing but a Grand Illusion
Why oh why oh why oh why

Thanks in advance :D

It might be Eric Clapton he had a single called Grand Illusion. I don't know what year it was released but the lyrics seem to match.

BTW Janis Ian and Joan Osbourne also had Grand Illusion songs but I suppose if you went with the Styx album the artist you are looking for is male.
