JDIZZY's 365 # 6 : Walk Away Renee

Walk Away Renee - The Left Banke (1966)

Following on the string-laden heels of yesterday, I present the first baroque pop song. The Harpsichord-driven tune was written by the band's 16-year old keyboardist Michael Brown. So good that artists as varied as the Four Tops, Bon Jovi and Badly Drawn Boy have covered it, but all pale in comparison to the heartbreaking original.
