Songfacts®:

  • "You Make It So Hard" was the B-side of "José," the second single release by Miles and his first on the Decca label. Like the A-side it was produced by Danny Beckett and arranged by Cy Payne.

    The song is heavy on strings and harpsichord, with Miles asking a girl why she makes it so hard to love her.

    Written by Miles, "You Make It So Hard" is heavy on production and is clearly recognizable as a precursor of his massive hit "Music." >>
