I joked in a previous thread that the flute has no place in music. Well kinda joked. With the exception of “Moondance”, I can’t think of an instance of the that didn’t make me reach for the dial.
I invite you, individually and/or collectively, to offer up 10 great rock songs that feature a flute. I’ll be the judge and jury.
Here are the rules:
Not including Moondance.
- The flute must be relatively prominent and integral. Don’t split hairs, you know what I’m sayin’.
- I flippantly said “music,” but for this challenge I’m limiting you to rock songs.
- No more than 2 songs by a given artist. I confess that there might be other Van Morrison songs that I’m unaware of. (BTW: Van Morrison is the exception to another one of my rock laws. Stay tuned.)
- Mellotrons, and other devices, that sound like flutes don’t count.
Tip: Don’t even try any Tull. DOA
