THE LEFT BANKE I don't own anything by The Left Banke, but I have always liked the subject song since about the age of 10. I remember hearing The Four Tops singing it as well. Differing accounts by the co-writers as to the song's origin: Michael Brown has stated that "the song is one of a number he wrote about Renée Fladen-Kamm, the then-girlfriend of The Left Banke's bassist Tom Finn and object of Brown's affection. She was associated with the band for a few weeks, and was described as a free-spirited and tall blonde. The song was written one month after Brown met her. 'Walk Away Renee' was one of a series of love songs the infatuated Brown wrote after meeting his newfound muse." "However, co-writer Tony Sansone has given a different version of the origin of the song and contends that he is the primary writer. Sansone has stated in interviews that he wrote the lyrics for the song, and that he randomly chose the name Renée because the Beatles used the name Michelle in their hit song of the same name, and so he did likewise, choosing the French name Renée as the female object for the song." The flute is part of the song because it was admired in The Mamas and the Papas, "California Dreamin'". "Walk Away Renee"
