Top 10 Rock Songs with a Saxophone

Sax isn't a common rock instrument but some music artists incorporated it successfully.

The Top Ten

1 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
2 Urgent - Foreigner

Incredible song with amazing sax solo by Junior Walker - in 1981 this song hit #1 on the Billboard Rock Tracks chart and held this position for 4 weeks.
Foreigner wanted a "Junior Walker-style" sax solo for this song. While recording the album they read in a newspaper that Walker was performing that night mere blocks from their recording studio. They went there and promised a pretty good payday so he accepted the offer to play even though he had never heard of Foreigner.
Foreigner played the raw track for him and asked him to improvise a solo. After a SINGLE listening, he amazed the band by cutting one of the most memorable sax solos in rock history in ONE take. - Metal_Treasure
