    I'm too lazy to post videos but here's a few of my favorites:

    1. Dokken- In My Dreams
    2. Queensryche- Silent Lucidity
    3. Van Halen- Dreams
    4. Scorpions- No One Like You
    5. Vinnie Moore- Daydream (yes, even instrumentals can have solos in them)

    A song that isn't talked about but for me this is Gilmours best solo



    But my favorite solo in a melodic type song is the outro to this.

    I'll see your Coming Back to Life (which is awesome) and raise you another song from the same album. One of my favorite ever PF songs. Starting at 5:10

    First Time
    If you like Eddie's solos on Love Walks In then you'll love this. Solo starts 1m 59s




    Probably the greatest of all time - Beyond the Realms of Death
    This link is the best cover I've heard.




    The FIRST solo from Comfortbably Numb
    So beautiful it makes me want to cry. Kicks in at 2m 39s.




    You Shook Me All Night Long
    So good you can't envisage another solo in its place. Starts at 2m 20s.





    Getting faster....


    The Final Countdown.

    A solo everyone plays wrong and is trickier than it seems. Solo starts 3, 17s.



    Little Fighter
    Such melodic genius and ultimate control. Solo starts 2m 49s.



    Ice Cream Man
    No link - you know what it sounds like.
