Top 10 Rock Songs with a Saxophone

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

The Top Ten

Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd Cover Art

So, just to clarify, do you or don't you want original 50s rock and roll stuff on here? I'm only asking because people used a lot of saxophone in those days. - Gg2000

Urgent - Foreigner Urgent - Foreigner Cover Art

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

Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty Cover Art
Never Tear Us Apart - INXS Never Tear Us Apart - INXS Cover Art

Probably the only INXS song I truly like - not for the sax but sax is one of the highlights. - Metal_Treasure
