Top Ten Rock Songs Which Feature HarmonicaSee? I don't just have Blues Harmonica on the brain - I also have Rock; some which feature some of the best Harmonica playing. So...if you know of any more which deserve to be here, feel free to add or vote for an existing item.
The Top Ten
"Love Me Do" IS a rock song. Early rock, pop rock. 'Pure pop' in the early 60's consisted of singers with backup musicians; the Beatles had a rock band line-up. - Crwth
"Love Me Do" is NOT a rock song! It's pure pop!
I love this song! :3 - Misfire
Cool list, thanks for making it.
I really would, at some point, love to be able to play this on the harmonica. This is my goal. - Britgirl
This is such a great song. - Userguy44
Not really blues harp, but the harmonica riff is an essential hook. - Gg2000
Surprised this isn't Top 5. - truckturner
I'm just as surprised I forgot it! But with so many other great ones... You're right though - it does deserve to be much, much higher. - Britgirl
Why is this one here? It doesn't have a harmonica at all. The song from that album that DOES have a harmonica is You Shook Me.
What this song does have is Jimmy's violin bow but no harmonica is featured here. - KillerQueen1774
This song (relatively speaking) is the most bluesy thing they did. - Gg2000
Yeah! - DaringXx
Towards the end you can hear a harmonica faintly playing with the guitar. It’s epic - DaringXx
Alice Cooper himself plays the harmonica. I think he cut his teeth on harmonica by imitating Mick Jagger and Keith Relf. - Gg2000
This song is awesome. I think it's better if you listen to it. - Gg2000
Great harmonica in this song: the quintessential rock harmonica solo
Lee Brilleaux was a great harmonica player. - Gg2000
This one's a really solid rave up. I'm sure you're familiar with it. - Gg2000
Yes, familiar with it. And I do like it a lot. There are a few good songs added here that I wish I'd included. - Britgirl
Thank you to the person who added this - good choice! You reminded me of another great J. Geils Band song I should have added sooner; Whammer Jammer; another example of excellent harmonica playing. - Britgirl
Magic Dick is THE man!
When they did it live, yes. But the studio version has a violin solo at the end. - Gg2000
A rarity in that Ozzy Osbourne actually plays an instrument on a Black Sabbath song. - Gg2000
From Moody Blues member Ray Thomas. This song is 1 of 2 with my favorite harmonica of all time. (The other is George Martin and His Orchestra's version of the Beatles' "Don't Bother Me") - Crwth
First thing I recognized in this song. - Userguy44
The harmonica on this song is awesome. - Gg2000
Bono plays a soft harmonica solo at the end. - Gg2000
This is different from most of Dylan's work in that famed session musician Charlie McCoy played harp, not Bob. - Gg2000
The harmonica is played by outside musician Jimmy Hall. - Gg2000
I wanted to vote for this AND Butterfield's Highway 28, which are both so good! You don't make it easy do you - ha! Anyway, I flipped a coin and guess what... Hoy! Hoy! Hoy! I'm happy with its choice. - Britgirl
Brown Sugar doesn't have a harmonica on it. - Gg2000
