    What song had amazing *in your estimation* music, not just vocals?

    I've always loved the sax, so this is one of my favorites.

    Percussion is another biggie for me, so Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk" was IT for me.

    This is my favorite version of one of my favorite songs ever. I get goosebumps every time, at the 8:15-17 mark.

    It's just me? Nobody has a song where the musical instrument ability trumps the singing?

    I have quite a few, but most probably have never heard of them. Rush is one example of an incredible group of musicians, but I'm into progressive-type rock/metal. Go check out Dream Theater on youtube...i'd listen to these guys without vocals.

    I named my daughter after this. On her 21st birthday, she was at a Great Southern concert and her friends got word to Dicky Betts that she was named for the song. Betts called her up on stage and faced her as he played it. She called me crying to thank me.

    No, seriously! Bring your favorites here. I always like hearing what strongly affects someone else.

    I can't believe I forgot my personal favorites. Major 'derp' moment, here.
