“She’s Gone” by Daryl Hall and John Oates was released during early 1974 and reached number 60 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. It remained on the chart for a total of eight weeks but never could attain hit status.
Two years later found Hall & Oates signed to the RCA label. Their second single to reach the charts, “Sara Smile” became a big hit reaching number four. The Atlantic label decided to cash in on the duo’s new popularity and rereleased “She’s Gone.” It reached the Singles Chart for the second time during the summer of 1976 and climbed to number seven, becoming a big hit on its own.
It was a wonderful soulful performance that was somewhat difference from many of their straight pop hits. It is one of their songs that has aged well.
