The Top Ten

2 Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
3 Urgent - Foreigner Urgent - Foreigner

Yes, a mindblowing sax solo instead of a guitar solo is absolutely unique on a hard rock song. Great song, great sax. Junior Walker cut one of the most memorable sax solos in one take. Moreover, Foreigner played the raw track for him only once and asked him to improvise a solo. - Metal_Treasure
