The Left Banke were an American baroque pop band that formed in New York City in 1965 and disbanded in 1969. They're best remembered for their two U.S. hit singles, "Walk Away Renée" and "Pretty Ballerina". The band often utilized what the music press referred to as "baroque" string arrangements, which led to their music being variously termed as "Bach-rock", "baroque rock" or "baroque 'n' roll". The band's harmonies borrowed from contemporaries such as The Beatles, The Zombies, and other British Invasion groups. In 2004, ''Rolling Stone'' magazine placed "Walk Away Renée" at #220 in its list of ''The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time''.
