Tremontaine--(don't know if I spelled that right) it's by Foreignor. Love it!

Also, ELO had one I liked but I can never think of the name of it and am too lazy to Google it! Lol!

I like Herb and the TB too! Grew up listening to that. My mom had this racey album of theirs with a naked chick on the front covered in whipped cream. Oh my! (actually, I think we've discussed that very album cover on this website some time ago??)

Yeah Phil, "Love Is Blue" should have been on my list..one of my alltime favorite songs.

A couple others I forgot:

-Overture (from 2112) - Rush...kick fanny way to open up maybe the best album side of music ever, IMHO..

-"A Day Without Rain" - Enya...my favorite track of hers

Pretty much anything by Danny Gatton, on the 88 Elmira Street album. Interesting takes on "In My Room" and the Theme from the Simpsons.

Whole Lotta Love, by C.C.S. Now that was a cool cover version...and it even became a hit, I believe.

Defining an instrumental as a track without vocals, I also nominate "Nutopian International Anthem" from John Lennon's Mind Games LP. Since he had nothing much to say by this point, the silence was appreciated. (Not entirely true, "Out the Blue" was a good song from that album).
