‘Walk Away Renee is a song made popular by the band The Left Banke in 1966. It was composed by the group’s then 16-year-old keyboard player Michael Brown and Tony Sansone, along with Bob Calilli who was credited as a writer in exchange for setting up the session in which the writing of the song was completed. The song features a flute during the middle of the song, which was inspired by The Mamas & The Papas song ‘California Dreamin’. It has been widely covered by artists in a broad range of genres and styles, most successfully by The Four Tops in 1968.
