There She Goes

Remixed by The La’s (US #49/UK #57 1990).

Other hit version by Sixpence None the Richer (US #32/UK #14 1999).

From the wiki: “‘There She Goes’ was written by British singer/guitarist Lee Mavers and recorded first by Mavers’ band, The La’s. The first version of the song, produced by Bob Andrews, was released by The La’s in 1988, and again in January 1989, but failed to chart. A remixed version was issued as a single on 22 October 1990 and hit #13 in the UK charts (and later hit #49 in the U.S.). It was the biggest success The La’s were ever to enjoy and remains the song for which the band is chiefly remembered. In May 2007, the NME magazine placed the song at #45 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever.

‘There She Goes’ has appeared on several film soundtracks, including So I Married an Axe Murderer (where both the original 1989 recording and the Boo Radleys’ 1992 cover appear); The Parent Trap (1998); Fever Pitch (2005); Girl, Interrupted (1999); and Gilmore Girls’ ‘Pilot’ (2000).

“Nashville, TN, alternative rock band Sixpence None the Richer released a cover version of the song in 1999 as the second single from their self-titled album, charting Top-40 in the US and Top-15 in the UK.”
