Even in today's vast market of MP3 collections, getting an official release of a song for a call tone/ringer, or in MP3 format can be a challenge because digital music libraries just don't have every song ever recorded in their collection yet. 1967 was the year the Monkees released She, and though I might have better luck downloading it on iTunes, I still have to look a bit harder to get it on my phone. My curiosity wouldn't cease after being teased about it in aubkabob entry This song has been freaking going thru my head for DAYS for some reason. Don't get your hopes up yet, the youtube video in that entry has been taken down.
I needed to hear that song because of the mysterious reporter mentioned in The girl with the dragon tattoo wherein Stieg describes her only as She of TV4. After only briefly researching that entry, did I satisfy my confusion. She may be a Swedish program on TV. It wasn't until two days of unsuccessful web surfing for a complete version of the song She that I came to realize the connection between the title of this song by the Monkees, and the entry in the Stieg Larsson novel. There is none. It's just me. Just the same, I found a free version of the song at listen.grooveshark.com but the weirdest thing happened. As I prepare to write this entry, I copy the url address linking to the song and try it out on a different computer. Error.
Again, my bewilderment gets the best of me and I must find a solution for the problem because it wasn't at all easy tracking down a complete version of the song. I don't know why my browser doesn't recognize the url, but I discovered that googling http://listen.grooveshark.com, or simply going to that url, a person can search within that site for "the monkees She" I don't remember whether it was a song included in one of the many TV episodes of the Monkees that I may have sat thru as a child, but I like the song. It has so many parallel truths about my outlook about stuff.
