Just Walk Away by Celine Dion – 21 Plays – 8 ‘J’ Songs in Total

I don’t know when I first heard Just Walk Away by Celine Dion. My mum had the album Colour of My Love, so it’s when I first found that on the shelf. The album was released the year after I was born, so there’s a high chance I’ve been listening to it since birth. We definitely always have music playing in the background of our baby videos, so music from the 80’s and 90’s was basically the soundtrack to my childhood.

There were only 8 songs in this letter, so it was inevitable that the most played song wasn’t going to be one of my absolute favourite songs ever. I don’t skip Just Walk Away when it comes on, but I wouldn’t pick it out to listen to it. There are many other Celine Dion songs that I would choose over this one. A lyric video for Just Walk Away can be found at the bottom of this blog.

I don’t dislike Just Walk Away. I will listen to pretty much anything sung by Celine Dion. I interpret this song in two ways, and I don’t think I’ll ever know what the correct meaning is. From what I can gather, she is walking away from a man that she loves, but I’m not entirely sure why. Maybe it’s about a relationship with someone that’s not quite working out, but she still adores them to the point that it’s incredibly difficult to walk away. I suppose everyone needs to find the strength at some point to walk away from a relationship that’s not working out for them. Even if it’s not a romantic relationship.

I know I must forget you to go on
I can’t hold back my tears too long
Though life won’t be the same
I’ve got to take the blame

The second meaning could be that she has caused the relationship to end and it’s extremely painful to watch this man walk away from her. She doesn’t fight for him though, she just lets him go. The frustrating this is, we’ll never know what she did. I can’t be the only nosy person listening to songs. It’s like reading a book that leaves you asking more questions at the end than when you started reading it.

For the songs that I was surprised weren’t higher up the list, I could just list all 8 of the songs in the letter ‘J’, but I won’t. I was expecting Just So You Know by Jesse McCartney to be number 1. I swear I’ve listened to that song more than 14 times, but that must have been on my old MP3 Player. You can listen to it here. Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield was second on the list with 19 plays. It’s such a good song for those of you that haven’t heard it before. Give it a listen here.

Until the next time,

A-Z Blogging Challenge 2018 - Lauren Mayhew AuthorA few fun facts: Of the 1,199 songs on my iPod – I know, feeble compared to some – there have been a total of 16,039 plays. This equates to an average of 13.4 plays per song. If each song is an average of 3 minutes long, this means that I have spent approximately 801.95 hours listening to the music on my iPod or 33.4 days. This doesn’t include the many times that I have watched and re-watched music videos or the time before the iPod. I can guarantee things would look a little different if I could get the data from my MP3 Player, or Windows Media Player days.
