    My vote would also be for Ice Cream Man. Eddie has played alot of amazing solos, but that one just seems a little better than the rest to me.

    Nice call on the Beat It solo. That one is a choice solo if I ever heard one I must say. He says so much in so little of time. Out

    "I'm The One" is what a pal of mine calls, "burly."

    I must also add that the solo to DOA is ass kicking in it's own right, but especially the second solo right before the end of the song. Ed just seems to go nutty and ends up making a beautiful moment almost by mistake.

    I have so many favorites but I'm going say this is very underrated:

    Pleasure Dome.. the Main solo is great and finger picking sound Ed gets on the outro is a fav of mine... any others like that solo?

    On Fire solo from Pas Civ Ctr 77 is another great solo... Ed was just a kid when he played that song.. Killer stuff..

    Ice Cream Man, intro to Fools, the intro of Mean Sreet is a killer, and I thought the Pleasure Dome solo kicked.

    Feel Your Love Tonight

    Loss Of Control (you may not like the song, but check out the solo!)

    Little Guitars (not really a solo, more of a cadenza, I think) Gives me chillbumps...
