In 1958 the song was released on a single as a flipside to "Hard Headed Woman",[3][4] another song from the same movie.[5] In the United States "Don't Ask Me Why" peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Hard Headed Woman" was number 1 for two weeks.[6]

The single "Heard Headed Woman / Don't Ask Me Why" was among the most popular singles of the whole year 1958 in the United States: Billboard ranked it number 49 on the year-end Popular chart (a recapitulation of the Billboard's Pop Singles chart for the year) and number 17 on the year-end Country and Western chart (a recapitulation of the Billboard's C&W chart).[7] The single was certified Planinum by the RIAA.[8][9]
