“Absolutely (Story of a Girl)” is a song recorded by American rock band Nine Days for the group's fourth studio album, The Madding Crowd (2000). The song was released as the lead single from The Madding Crowd in April 2000 through 550 Music and Epic Records. The song is an upbeat power pop anthem written by guitarist/vocalist John Hampson for his wife, who was his girlfriend at the time it was composed. Brian Desveaux, the group's other guitarist, also receives songwriting credit. The song represented a breakthrough for the band after years of attempting to interest major record labels. It was recorded in Atlanta, Georgia at Tree Sound Studios with producer Nick DiDia. The song became the band's only hit single; it reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, and it peaked within the top ten in Canada and New Zealand. The song's music video was directed by Liz Friedlander and received airplay on MTV and VH1. The band's follow-up single, “If I Am”, fared poorer than its predecessor, and Nine Days became a one-hit wonder.
