Just a reminder of some I mentioned previously in this thread.



Wild Night, etc. - Van Morrison

Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder

The horns are not real up front in this one, but they are absolutely fantastic.

And I don't think anyone's brought up

Got To Get You Into My Life - The Beatles

If you promised me a mention I'd suggest 'Harden My Heart' by Quarteflash. Classic 80's hit, and all the better for the stonking saxaphone being played by a woman...cool guitar solo too, but it's mostly the sax for me.


Ouch! One of my faves....must have been the state of my heart at the time :blush: Still a great guitar solo though, way ahead of its time in terms of composition as a top 100 hit.

Has anyone suggested 'Will You' by Hazel Oconnor. Massive 20 week top 2o hit in the UK...no ideas what it did in the states...superb Sax solo is most of the song.

I'll take my Quarteflash album and leave, quietly... ;)

(PS Still think you are wrong. Women play great sax and Harden My Heart, great tune...try it again! :cool: )

Mediate by INXS has a sax solo too :)

And some Chili Pepper songs have Flea playing trumpet since that was the first instrument he took up. Was quite the prodigy too, I believe. Taste The Pain off Mother's Milk (1989) and even Hump de Bump from Stadium Arcadium :rockon:
