Top 10 Songs with Broken Licks

Broken licks doesn't mean anything bad. I don't even know if this term is known as "broken lick" but what I meant to say here some songs have very different, unique licks. Which sound pretty different from each other. Those licks often come with their own style. Those licks don't follow rhythm of previous and later licks. It often sound as a standalone licks. And the tone of these licks are very clear. These licks usually are NOT in riffs. Mostly these licks are blues and country licks. That's why these kinds of licks can be found in blues and country rock songs more.
