She's Not There (2:23)

Cover of The Ultimate Sixties Collection

From The Ultimate Sixties Collection and 107 other releases

’ She’s Not There’ was the debut single by the British pop band, The Zombies. It was recorded in one take. It reached number twelve in the UK Singles Chart in August 1964., number two in the Billboard Hot 100 (USA), and #2 in Canada.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked “She’s Not There” #291 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

One of the song’s most distinctive features is Argent’s electric piano sound which was rare at the time. In the UK, it was the first hit song with an electric piano as the lead instrument. Rod Argent, the keyboard player in the Zombies, was challenged by Decca Records producer Ken Jones to write a hit record for his group, and he came up with this.

Santana covered this on their 1977 album Moonflower.
