    Saxophone solos in pop music

    I would like to put together a CD of pop music for a friend. The pieces should contain pronounced saxophone passages.
    E.g. the well-known Baker Street, or Romeo & Juliet (Live Version)
    It would be nice to name the artist as well as the name of the piece
    Maybe someone has some tips for me.
    It doesn't bother me at all if other solo wind instruments are mentioned here, which occupy a prominent position in POP pieces
    E.g. the French horn in "See my Baby jive" by Wizzard

    Many Thanks

    Hello,

    I spontaneously think of two pieces. Once a Supertramp with "It's raining aigain" and "Lily was here", but I only know that from the interpreters Candy Dulfer (Sax.) And Ulco Bed (guitar).

    Question: Are you only looking for pop music or do you want something from rock music as well? Or something in general from so-called U-Music?

    From Tina Turner: "Private Dancer" (at approx. 4 min).

    Or also Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet:



    and if you want something other than pop:
    I heard live today, for example, "Saxpack" is jazz but still good ;-)

    Legendary David Bargeron's tuba solo on "And When I Die" by Blood Sweet & Tears. The festival version, however, is probably the most popular.

    Except for German hits, everything is fine with me!

    Hello,

    "Can't you hear me knocking" (Rolling Stones), guitar / sax .; "Year of the cat" (Al Stewart) (piano and sax at the end). How about a conclusion to Pepe Lienhard's "Swiss Lady" (flute and ALPHORN).
