"I Don't Know Why" (sometimes listed as "I Don't Know Why I Love You") is a 1968 song by Stevie Wonder, from the album For Once in My Life. It also serves as the B-side for the 1969 hit "My Cherie Amour".

The song was recorded when Wonder was 18 years old, and became a moderate hit single, together with "You Met Your Match", another song from the album.

The Rolling Stones recorded a version on June 30, 1969, released on the Metamorphosis album in 1975. They were mixing the song when they learned that Brian Jones had died (July 3, 1969).

The Jackson 5 cover the song (listed as "Don't Know Why I Love You") on their 1970 album ABC.

The Brand New Heavies cover the song on their 2006 album Get Used To It.
