What Are Your Favorite Instrumental Tunes?

The subject of instrumentals came up in another thread, so I thought it might be fun to see what instrumental tunes everyone enjoys. Instrumentals cover a wide range of genres when you start to think about it; classical (of course), movie soundtracks, pop, jazz, big band oldies, blues, country, rock, and many instrumental versions of your favorite song titles, too.

 

So what instrumental music do you like? What are your favorite tunes or instrumental versions of your favorite songs? Multiple tunes and multiple genres are okay. And, if you have favorite on youtube, feel free to post the link so that we can listen, too!

""Rock Your Baby"  👶 KC & the Sunshine Band 

They wrote it put it on their list of tunes, year later gave it to G Mcrae with lyrics but originally it was a instrumental dance tune.

We play the Spa Channel on Sirius for our dogs and I hear alot of the same songs.  Here are some I really like.  We lost my nephew a year ago last July to suicide so they make me think of him and what he is doing in Heaven now.
