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!

It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere. - Keith Richards

1) Wild Weekend: The Rockin’ Rebels

 

2) Because They’re Young: Duane Eddy

 

3) Symphony No. 41: Mozart  (The Jupiter) I think it’s the 18th century precursor to rock and roll.

Cast Your Fate To The Wind: Vince Guaraldi Trio

Bronze Conversationalist

William Tell Overture by Rossini (aka the Lone Ranger theme song).  I used to play parts of this piece for my senior exercise class when we were walking around the room warming up our muscles,  and some of my older class participants, mostly the men (in their 70s and 80s) would jump around the room like they were riding a horse!

Midnight In Moscow: Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen

Social Butterfly

I happened to record a copy of this from the radio and never knew the name or artist. Finally, after all these years I know how to label it.
