What was the theme song in David E. Kelley's short-lived TV series Girls Club? According to Wikipedia the opening theme is "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" by Laura Dawn", but this is not the song that played in the promos or the series opening.

I wonder if this question should actually be closed and a new question created. The question was originally about the theme for Girls Club, and it seems apparent from all sources online that the theme was either San Francisco or Wild (as suggested by @rumandwrite). Given that, perhaps a new question should be opened asking specifically for the promo music, since technically this question has been answered. –  Andrew Martin Mar 24 at 11:49
    
I don't mind it if its closed. I can post another one if I ever recall additional details. I am fairly certain though, that the song was used as the theme as well, contrary to what online sources say. –  RecursiveCall Mar 24 at 15:27
    
to be honest, I don't know what the procedure is and it's one of these rare cases where all the online sources may well be wrong, given how short-lived and unsuccessful the show was - meaning this question may or may not be correctly answered. –  Andrew Martin Mar 24 at 15:35

It's 'Wild' by Poe.

This is definitely not the song that actually played. Even a different edit/remix wouldn't sound like it. I remember a distinct, elongated, higher pitch portions that are not in Poe's Wild. –  RecursiveCall Mar 23 at 15:23
    
Fair enough. But rather than getting into a guessing game, it would be best to actually see/hear what you watched. Could you post a video or audio clip of the theme in question? –  rumandwrite Mar 23 at 15:33
    
I wish. I am trying to find it. The only thing I have to go by is me remembering what it sounds like. :( –  RecursiveCall Mar 23 at 15:40
    
No problem. While we're on the subject, @AndrewMartin has also posted an answer on this page. Does that song he suggested ring any bells? :-) –  rumandwrite Mar 23 at 15:43
    
The poster in the IMDB thread is correct in saying that it is a female voice... so definitely not the Goo Goo Dolls. –  RecursiveCall Mar 23 at 15:45

I've never seen the show, or any of its promos - and given it lasted just two episodes it's proving difficult to actually find a link to it anywhere.

You've already ruled out Laura Dawn - San Franciso, but that does seem to be listed in most places as the theme.

Over at the IMDB, somebody asked a question regarding the song that appeared in the commercials, with the answer given as The Goo Goo Dolls - Here is Gone.

I can't find anything else to substantiate this, but I'll post it as a possible answer. Is this song what you're looking for?

Not Goo Goo Dolls for sure. As mentioned in that thread, it's definitely a female voice and the song was used for both the promos and the theme. –  RecursiveCall Mar 23 at 15:43
    
And it's definitely not the Laura Dawn theme I've posted. I know you said earlier no, but I just want to double check as I can find no other references to the short-lived show online. –  Andrew Martin Mar 23 at 15:43
    
@RecursiveCall: Forgot to address you in previous post (so not sure if it alerted you). Is it definitely not the Laura Dawn theme? –  Andrew Martin Mar 23 at 15:58
    
It's definitely not a variation of San Francisco. The song you linked above may have been played in one of the scenes but not as a promo/theme. Perhaps Fox swapped it out for whatever reason. –  RecursiveCall Mar 23 at 16:20
