    I started making a mix CD for a friend, and I realized that the first three songs I chose had sax solos! So I thought I'd bring it to the forum to get some ideas...

    RULES: The tune must be considered a rock song and either have a sax solo or a heavily featured sax. No Bruce Springsteen suggestions, please (already got him covered :) ).

    Here's what I have so far:

    Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy
    Steely Dan - Doctor Wu
    The Band - It Makes No Difference
    Thin Lizzy - Dancing in the Moonlight
    Joe Jackson - Cha Cha Loco
    Bruce Springsteen - Prove It All Night
    Billy Joel - Still Rock & Roll To Me

    This CD is strictly needle drops, so I might not have your suggestions. Still, I might end up borrowing an LP or two (or buying) if it's a good choice.

    Anybody want to suggest a Tom Waits tune?
