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!

In the Mood

--Glenn Miller

 

In just four years Glenn Miller scored 23 number-one hits - more than Elvis Presley (18 No. 1s, 38 top 10s) and the Beatles (20 No. 1s, 33 top 10s) did in their careers. (Wiki)

Lots of versions with assorted arrangements. Just play it loud.

Well, Im sorry but I dont think they play 'music' anymore. What I listen to is the 70s and 80s music. Eltoon John, Journey, BeeGees, etc.; now those people now how to play. And theres a bonus....you can actually understand the words. lol thanks

70's and 80's had great music and I can understand the comfort found in the known but there is so much great new music coming out all the time. You love harmony like Crosby, Stills and Nash? try Darlingsides. This is White horse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCLkOAQxumI.
If you enjoyed the Beatles try Coldplay. Singer songwriter? Amos Lee, Harry Manx. Someone a little more pop - Howie Day, John Mayer, Jack Johnson. Music of each generation has new things to offer. Think of how much different you eat now than you did in the 80's - isn't it worth a try?
