Totally off topic - rock songs with saxophone
« on: March 13, 2015, 11:03:07 AM »
Right wids,

I need collective brain power.  My band are playing in a rock competition and we're trying to pick repertoire.  I need pretty well known ROCK songs that have saxophone or brass in them, or have potential to.  Can the musically inclined of you get your thinking caps on?  The rest of the band is made up of electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, and three female vocals if that helps.

Thus far, I have Uptown Funk.

The only one I can think of right now is Urgent by Foreigner, great sax solo.

Can't think about rock saxophone without that scene from The Lost Boys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmbt1RjPn4M

Since you put a caps on ROCK, I suppose ska isn't an option?
