Sunday Session – Sax

In an effort to be more creative , I am joining Thea at Do I Really Wanna Blog? and adding some music to this blog

New rules – there are no rules!
On Sundays I play music on my blog.
Old or new or in between.
Related or not.
But always songs I love!
Here are my picks for this week.
You can play along by linking up with Thea.
Happy Sunday!

Last week Thea’s Sunday Session theme was pink and she had Orchestral Manoeurvres In The Dark’s If You Leave. This song has a sax solo in it. I have long harboured a secret desire to learn to play the saxophone. Not so secret now, huh?

Anyway, this week I’m featuring my favourite songs with sax solos.

First up is Inxs’ Never Tear Us Apart. This was the song that got me into Inxs.

I think I have already mentioned that one of my favourite artists is Bruce Springsteen. Here is Born To Run. The saxophonist Clarence Clemons, Jr passed away on June 18, 2011.

And it would be illogical not to include Supertramp’s The Logical Song.

And what list of sax songs would be complete without Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street?

So there you have it: great sax on a Sunday.

Join in the fun.

    Nice!! That was great sax on a Sunday!
    It was good to hear INXS and Supertramp again. :)

  2. Great choices :) I have INXS as one of my choices today too

    Love Supertramp’s Logical Song – classic!!

    Great choices – particularly the Logical song and Baker St. Can’t ride the tube in London without Baker St going through my head – usually it’s Dave Grohls voice though, not Gerry Rafferty’s – only cos he is sexier :o )

  5. I’ve always been a Supertramp fan, and I actually have all of the albums for these songs except the Bruce Springsteen.

    My internet connection has been very slow since I moved (waiting for ADSL to be installed and am working off wireless) and yours is the first video I’ve been able to view in 10 days. I’m going through a bit of Sunday Session withdrawal, having missed out two weeks in a row now!

    Another one that has good sax is the Jackson Browne and Clarence Clemons song You’re a Friend of Mine. Don’tcha think?

      I do enjoy the Sunday Session. The Jackson and Clarence song is a good one also. So many sax songs to choose from, it was hard to keep my list to just four.
