Song of the day: The Zombies- She’s Not There


In 1964, the Zombies reached number 12 in the UK with their debut single She’s Not There. Rob Argent, the writer of the song, started with the title of a John Lee Hooker song, namely No One Told Me. This became the first line of his song. On a performance, he played the first verse, and Ken Jones encouraged him to write the rest of the song. The song’s distinctive feature became the harmonies with an electric piano. Enjoy
