Best The Shadows Songs

The Shadows were a British band in the 1960s best known for being Cliff Richard's backing band. They also had a successful career of their own as an instrumental group. I'm surprised that no one has made a list about them. Feel free to add any other songs to the list if you're a Shadows fan.

The Top Ten

1 Apache

Their biggest and most influential hit. It's fair to say that without this song, a lot of British guitarists wouldn't have picked up the guitar. - Gg2000

I knew this would be first, and rightly so. My Pops loved The Shadows and this one in particular. This is a vote for him. - Britgirl

2 F.B.I.

This song has a very strong galloping rhythm that gives it a unique quality. - Gg2000

3 36-24-36

This one has a bassline that just absolutely grooves. - Gg2000

4 Theme from a Filleted Place

This one has great guitar harmonies. The melody line is fantastic. - Gg2000

5 Big Boy

This one is a jaunty two step that kinda reminds me of western music. - Gg2000

6 Man of Mystery

Their second big hit. Like Apache, this one's in A minor. - Gg2000

7 See You in My Drums

This song is a showcase for drummer Tony Meehan. He was an amazing drummer. - Gg2000

8 Shotgun

This one has a very syncopated riff throughout that I love. - Gg2000

9 Shadoogie

As the song implies, it is literally a "Shadow Boogie". It's a great uptempo number. - Gg2000

10 Sleepwalk

This is a cover of the infamous Johnny and Santos song. It is so chilled out that it takes you to another place. - Gg2000
