[Top 5 Tuesday] Top 5 Classic Rock Instrumentals
Sometimes the words just don’t matter. Here are my five favorite instrumentals.
5 – ELO “Fire On High”
Okay, technically there are a few words here. There are back-masked vocals during the weird creepy intro; there are also a few words sung by the chorus. Still, there’s are no real “lyrics”, so this falls into the instrumental category.
4 – Allman Brothers Band “Jessica”
Admittedly, something of a cliched pick. Still, you can’t help but roll down the windows and put the pedal to the floor.
3 – Rush “YYZ”
I’m not the biggest Rush fan in the world, but I totally dig this song. It’s a great showcase for each of the band member’s musical talent.
2 – Santana “Soul Sacrifice”
I could listen to this jam go on forever. Don’t ever stop, Carlos.
1 – Led Zeppelin “Moby Dick”
The album version is a slice of heaven, and on the live versions, Bonzo just elevated beyond this mortal plane to a place occupied by gods.
