Pretty Ballerina" is a song written by pianist Michael Brown (born Michael Lookofsky) that was released as a single by his band the Left Banke in December 1966. It peaked at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 4 on the Canadian RPM chart.

With their debut album Walk Away Renée/Pretty Ballerina they hit the charts and both title songs became hit singles in the US. They're known for their vocal harmonies, which can be heard on most of the tracks of the album. With their pioneering use of strings, harpsichord and woodwinds they created a unique baroque sound. The beautiful and emotional vibe they laid down in their music can be heard on tracks like "She May Call You Up Tonight" and "I've Got Something on My Mind".

Pretty Ballerina Left Banke

Left Banke did not have many hit recordings, but their arrangements, particularly the "baroque pop" style with its strings and harpsichord, influenced numerous other musicians, including classical composers. Controversy around the group began with the song "And Suddenly," which was recorded by Brown using session musicians but released with the Left Banke name. The other band members urged a boycott through their fan club, and the record was finally pulled by Mercury/Smash. This has been covered by Alice Cooper (whose wife is a ballet dancer) and John Mellencamp  . It reached on the Canadian RPM 100 Singles chart.

The Left Banke included songwriter Michael Brown on piano and harpsichord, Steve Martin-Caro on lead vocals, Rick Brand on lead guitar, Tim Finn on bass guitar, and George Cameron on drums. Their 1967 debut album starts out strongly with the hauntingly beautiful song "Pretty Ballerina" ( in 1967). Its unconventional melody, melancholy lyrics, and ethereal vocals, make it sound like a waking dream. And when I wake on a dreary Sunday morning, I open up my eyes to find there's rain.

The Left Banke's follow-up, "Pretty Ballerina," was even more striking, and while the group started to fall apart almost as soon as they achieved success, their debut album, named for the two hit singles, was one of the best LPs released in a year full of innovation in pop music. Walk Away Renée/Pretty Ballerina is hardly unusual for a rock album of the era in that most of the tracks were dominated by session musicians rather than actual bandmembers, and in many respects, this album was a triumph for the producers and arrangers (among them Steve Jerome and John Abbott, along with Lookofsky) as much as the band, but they also gave
