Well it’s no longer rock & roll to me. Now it’s a sax solo.
This song has so much sax it should be on a webpage rating vocal solos in sax music instead. It would probably get a C there though.
There’s not much to this one, but it certainly is funky. I would definitely miss this one.
When this solo comes in, you don’t just expect it, you WANT it.
If what you’re looking for is to be exposed to continuous sax solos (of love), than Michael Stanley is right: your other man probably can’t love you the way that Michael Stanley and his band can.
With the weird orchestra-like hits alongside the sax and the singing, I couldn’t tell if I was playing Mario Paint or listening to a Roxy Music song. I wish it had been Mario Paint.
Somehow the rest of the song was bad enough that this solo actually enhanced it. The solo’s still lame, but at least it’s short.
I can’t really go for that sax solo. (No can do)
This is a great solo – too bad it’s just an afterthought.
For being so urgent, they sure didn’t hurry up the solo.
So smooth…so dull.
In the early 80′s, some bands really took pride in their sax solos. This didn’t really last.
Just waiting on a friend to finish playing his solo.
This song is about this woman who keeps going back to a “bad” guy. The bad guy is the saxophone (I think). If that’s true, I’m not sure why she didn’t have time to get away. I wasn’t even able to include all the sax parts in this clip….way too many.
If I could keep myself from cringing during the solo this one could probably climb a grade.
When I first learned to adjust the pitch of my sax by varying my jaw tightness, for awhile I enjoyed to make everything I played flat on purpose. This player somehow never got out of that phase.
With this sax in here, these guys probably had a lot of trouble with maneaters. This would have been an A solo if it was a bit shorter. And not so flat.
I think I was asleep by the time the solo came on. So even though the solo couldn’t completely wake me up, it was much, much less boring than the rest of the song.
So close to perfect – I don’t think I can make an exception and not take off points for having a solo during the fade.
I guess the total nonsense of this solo complements the simple, repeated themes of this song?
A great example of how to balance voices and sax. Went on a few measures too many though.
Unless the sax is supposed to represent some sex-starved boy this singer is toying with, I really don’t get it. Also, did they forget to turn on the player’s mic before the solo started? The playing is pretty great actually, I just think it belongs somewhere else.
A pretty terrible solo to listen to. Since the point of the song is that New York is terrible, I’m really not surprised. I’m sure it was really fun to play though. I’m giving the solo a D, but the song as a whole would get an A+ for the sax commentary.
The repetitive sax fills in this song were not really representative of the message, which is: in order to be happy, the singer needs to cheat on his relationship with someone spontaneous and different. Points for the duet though – that was unique.
