2 Blues Scene - Pink Floyd

Wow! I'm listening to this right now. Was sceptical about it as it's, well, Pink Floyd (not my favourite band at all) but I love it! I never expected it to sound so good! Love that guitar! - Britgirl

Yeah, even being the massive Floyd fan that I am and knowing how much of an inspiration the blues was to David Gilmour, I was still surprised when I heard this song. - BrianScott01

Found this song a couple of days ago just on YouTube. Damn, it's gold. - BrianScott01

3 This Note's for You - Neil Young UListen to Sample
4 Boomtown Blues - Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band
5 Ice Cream Man - Van Halen UListen to Sample
6 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple UListen to Sample
7 Young Man Blues - The Who UListen to Sample
8 The Ride - Prince
9 Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City - Whitesnake

My favourite of Whitesnakes's. Really, really love this song by this band. - Britgirl

10 Ride On - AC/DC

This is by far my favourite song of theirs. Not so much the vocals but the music sounds amazing. - Britgirl

I know I've said many times that AC/DC are a blues rock band, but this one is a straight out blues song. Nothing better in the Acca Dacca catalogue. - BrianScott01

The Contenders

11 Mistreated - Deep Purple UListen to Sample
12 Could This Be Magic? - Van Halen UListen to Sample
13 One Long Day - Cold Chisel UListen to Sample
14 Night Owl Blues - The Lovin' Spoonful

The Spoonful weren't a dedicated blues band (their style was more a mixture of folk and pop rock), but this song has some awesome blues harp playing by John Sebastian. He was a great harp player. - Gg2000
