My favorite instrumental songs...

by Sherry

My favorite instrumental songs:

Axel F - Harold Faltermeyer. Fun synthesizer-heavy theme from Beverly Hills Cop.

Baby Elephant Walk – Henry Mancini. So fun and playful. I can just imagine a cute baby elephant playing.

Cut The Cake - Average White Band. From the disco days. Fun, fun, fun!

The Entertainer (from the movie, The Sting) – Classic piano song.

Fifth Of Beethoven, A - Walter Murphy & the Big Apple Band. A disco "version" of the Beethoven classic. Fun!

Fire On High – great instrumental from the Electric Light Orchestra

Green Onions – Booker T. and MG’s. Classic from the 60s.

Hawaii Five-O (from the t.v. show). Classic.

Hooked On Classics – Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Fun versions of classical songs all strung together.

In The Mood (Instrumental) - Glenn Miller. Great song from the big band days. Love it!

James Bond Themes – Some great songs have come from the James Bond movies.

Lily Was Here – Candy Dulfer and David A. Stewart. Great saxophone.

Miami Vice Theme – Jan Hammer. Another fun, synthesizer-heavy instrumental.

Mission Impossible Theme. Really cool.

Music Box Dancer – Frank Mills. Cute song.

Peter Gunn (Instrumental) - Duane Eddy. Love it. Love the version by Art Of Noise also.

Pink Panther Theme – Henry Mancini. Classic, fun song.

Popcorn - Hot Butter. Kind of silly, but fun!

Rock And Roll Part 2 - Gary Glitter. Great glam rock song now played at many sporting events.

Rockit (Instrumental) - Herbie Hancock. Great "futuristic" song from the 1980s. Remember the video? The part I remember most are the mechanical legs walking around.
Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band - Meco

Tequila - The Champs. Classic. Energetic. Great saxophone!

Walk-Don't Run – The Ventures. Love the surf songs.

Wipe Out – The Safaris. Again, love the surf songs.

- Most of these are fun and upbeat!

It was the summer of 68,around July or August. How do you describe an instrumental? It wasn't Paul Mauriat, but it was mainly violins. It was a bit upbeat and happy-sounding.
