Old Grey Whistle Test, 1976

The Kings of soft rock, Hall & Oates owned The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1976 with hit “She’s Gone,” that was written by the two incredible lyricists and vocalists as a source of comfort during a rough period of struggle and rejection. Just after Hall had gotten divorced and Oates was stood up by a New Year’s Eve date, the two collaborated with their painful experiences and created something seriously beautiful.

Interesting Quote: “We sat down together, and the first line that came out was, ‘Everybody’s high on consolation. It was one of those things where the lines just flowed out, and we were banging it back and forth. To me that is the ultimate Daryl and John song, because that was so collaborative, and so much a part of both of our experiences and lives thrown together.” – Daryl Hall

From second album Abandoned Luncheonette, “She’s Gone” was released as a single in 1974, hitting #60 on Billboards Hot 100. It quickly became the duos favorite song as it shared personal and intimate times with fans, let alone with the entire world. Enjoy!

+ She’s Gone Lyrics +

Everybody’s high on consolation
Everybody’s trying to tell me what’s right for me
My daddy tried to bore me with a sermon
But it’s plain to see that they can’t comfort me

Sorry Charlie for the imposition
I think I’ve got it, got the strength to carry on
I need a drink and a quick decision
Now it’s up to me, ooh what will be

She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Better learn how to face it
She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Pay the devil to replace her
She’s gone, what went wrong

Get up in the morning look in the mirror
I’m worn as her tooth brush hanging in the stand
My face ain’t looking any younger
Now I can see love’s taken her toll on me

She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Better learn how to face it
She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Pay the devil to replace her
She’s gone, what went wrong

Think I’ll spend eternity in the city
Let the carbon and monoxide choke my thoughts away
And pretty bodies help dissolve the memories
But they can never be what she was to me

She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Better learn how to face it
She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Pay the devil to replace her
She’s gone, what went wrong

She’s gone, oh I, oh I’d
Better learn how to face it
She’s gone (she’s gone)
I can’t believe that she’s gone, oh I
I’d pay the devil to replace her
She’s gone oh I, oh I’d
Better learn how to face it
She’s gone (she’s gone)
I can’t believe that she’s gone, oh I
I’d pay the devil to replace her
She’s gone (she’s gone)
She’s gone (she’s gone)
She’s gone (she’s gone)
She’s gone (she’s gone)
She’s gone
