"She's So High"
(1999)
"If You Sleep"
(1999)

"She's So High" is a song written and performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Tal Bachman. It was released as a single in 1999 from his eponymous album, Tal Bachman. The song won a BMI award [1] and a Juno Award for Best Producer.[2] The song can also be heard in the 2000 film Loser as well as the 2010 film She's Out of My League.

Inspiration

Bachman wrote the song about an experience that he had in high school when he was trying to get a girl to date his stepbrother.[3] "I attempted to bribe the hottest girl in our high school to go out on a date with [my stepbrother]," Bachman told MTV News. "So as the conversation between me and what I thought was this godly, exalted woman progressed, I began to feel more and more uncomfortable and awkward, and so I just remember that feeling... I don't want to say fear, but just kind of being in awe of her."[3]

Other Appearances

She's So High was featured on Charmed Season 1 Episode 10 the "Wicca Envy". It was played just after the usual opening song of the series, while Prue played by Shannen Doherty is trying to decide what to wear. The song also featured in the 2000 film 'Loser' featuring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari. [4]

Music video

The official music video features Yvonne Sciò dressed in angel's wings and a leather pilot cap with aviator's goggles from the 1920s.
