Rolling Stones - "Live With Me", "Brown Sugar"

J. Geils Band - "I'm Falling" (Live version off of Showtime!, sort of obscure, but one of my favorites

David Bowie - "Modern Love"

Off the top of my head:


Aretha Franklin - "Respect"

David Bowie - "Young Americans"

Earth, Wind & Fire - "Reasons"

Earth, Wind & Fire - "Sun Goddess" (Live version)

The Rolling Stones - "Waiting On A Friend"

Donald Fagen - "Maxine"

Steely Dan - "Deacon Blues"

Romeo Void - "Never Say Never"

Men At Work - "Who Can It Be Now"

Billy Joel - "Just The Way You Are"

Van Morrison - "Into The Mystic" (not exactly a solo, but featured prominently, just like some other cuts on Moondance.)

Not really full fledged sax solos, but early Roxy Music does feature the sax as one of the key elements in their songs. For example, there is quite a lot of interplay between sax, guitar and Eno's keyboards on Remake / Remodel from the first album.

But otherwise, it is Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street that comes immediately to mind.

Take a listen to about anything from Slightly Stoopid.
Bad name, fun band. Lots of sax! Think English 80's ska meets late 90's southern Cali rock.... English Beat mixed with Sublime
