CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
WALK ON BY
that’s all that I have left.
So let me hide
the tears & the sadness
you gave me
when you said goodbye...”
Burt Bacharach composed music for many musical gems co-written with lyricist Hal David. "Walk On By" remains one of the team's best creations.
The song has been covered by numerous artists in a variety of diverse genres. The original, sung by soul singer Dionne Warwick, was released in 1964. That year, the ballad made the American and British Top 10.
According to the verses, the protagonist is still not over the man she was romantically involved with. Whenever she spots him, she ends up in tears. Her mission is to not cry in front of him. She is pleading with her ex to just walk past her without saying a word so as to avoid tears.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
