Music Monday – Don’t Look Back

A friend of mine posted a quote today on Facebook that said “Don’t look back.  You’re not going that way.”  The first thing that popped into my head was the Fine Young Cannibals.  So, here we are…songs about not looking back because, as Rafiki says, “It doesn’t matter.  It’s in the past.”

Don’t Look Back by Fine Young Cannibals

(released 1989; peaked #10 Ireland, #10 Canada, #11 US Hot 100 )

Oh, I know these times are bad and it makes you wanna cry

Don’t be sad.
We’ll get by.

Don’t look back
It won’t do no good

I liked The Raw and The Cooked.  It had lots of cool songs.  I think I actually like “don’t Look Back” better than “She Drives Me Crazy”.

Don’t Turn Around by Ace of Base

(released 1994; peaked #1 Canada, #4 US Hot 100, #5 UK Singles)

Don’t turn around
‘Cause you’re gonna see my heart breaking
Don’t turn around
I don’t want you seeing me cry
Just walk away
It’s tearing me apart that you’re leaving
I’m letting you go
But I won’t let you know…

A hit for Ace of base, though not as big as “All That She Wants”.
