    Default Best Saxophone solos

    So I heard these two songs in the grocery store last night and they both have pretty cool saxophone parts. It got me thinking, which rock songs have the best sax solos? All I can think of off the top of my head is maybe some George Throrogood songs or Springsteen? I know I've "air saxed" to some tunes over the years but they escape me. Got any favorite ROCK sax songs?





    And I don't think Baker Street counts as a solo.
