About this deal

What i hate abour "She" is that it became veeery annoying over time due to being used in every commercial, every shitty tv show, every wedding from 2001 to 2014. The only music to trickle to my remote corner of Delhi was the pop chartbusters like Backstreet Boys, Bryan Adams, and others.

Elvis Costello recorded a cover version of the song in 1999 for the soundtrack of the film Notting Hill. Anyway, Aznavour also recorded She, so you can listen to his version and compare if you feel like it. Vote up content that is on-topic, within the rules/guidelines, and will likely stay relevant long-term.The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Mercury Records Ltd (London) except track 1 owned by Island Records and is exclusively licensed to Mercury Records Ltd (London).

THe thing is, he wanted to express his songs to a wider audience, so he translated some of his greatest hits into english with mixed results ("Hier encore" became "Yesterday, when I was young", La boheme was made in english). Aznavour starred in the music video, standing at a fountain while being secretly observed by Hall and Stewart. I think this song is about someone who has fallen in love with a woman who is somewhat mysterious and has a bit of a front - "inside her shell" "No-one's allowed to see them when they cry" and he is intrigued by her. He also recorded the song in a more uptempo French version with different lyrics, simply titled "Elle" (English: She). From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs).Thing is, back then, when I first saw this film (and heard music from this film), I would have ignored “She” for sure.
