I Love the Sound of You Walking Away...
This collection is one I call "Songs that use the phrase 'walk away' somewhere in the lyrics." There was many to choose from and there were some notable exclusions (including Cheap Tricks "Walk Away" and Boston's "More than a Feeling") but I widdled it down to five tracks.
The first is an acoustic track from one of my favorites of the new Franz Ferdinand Album fittingly called Walk Away.
MP3 Franz Ferdinand - Walk Away (acoustic)
The second is fantastic song that was just featured on the latest O.C. episode. This song has been playing in my head for about a week now and features the line "every time I see you, you just walk away"
MP3 The Subways - I Want To Hear What You Have Got To Say
This song is from one of my most memorable high school records, Something to Write Home About. You got to hand it to the Get Up Kids.
MP3 The Get Up Kids - My Apology
This track has some of the cheesiest 80's synthesizers I've ever heard. But its the Cure and they're amazing, so you cut them some slack.
MP3 The Cure - The Walk
To end this collection, I'm putting Collective Soul's live cover of U2's 1980 classic "I Will Follow". The singer sounds really bad on this song, but the guitar work is very good - so it just about makes up for it.
