AMF Survey - Top Instrumental Songs of All Time - RESULTS

Post by panam » Mon Sep 23, 2019 1:21 am

First of all, I apologize for the delay in delivering the results of the survey that last since February to June of this year. I have had very serious personal problems that made it impossible for me to do so within the desired time.

I also thank each of you for daring to bringing your lists. It has been a challenge to be able to count it and look for the correct information according to the initial requirements.

Only songs with at least two votes are included. Singular votes are not included.

The songs that did not meet the requirements will be mentioned within the list in the order which obtained their score but out of the position list (respecting for those who included them). It is true that some of these songs do not have lyrics, but the rules were referred to the vocals and the rules were mentioned from the beginning. A classic musical work that was not conceived for recording was also removed from a position list.

Although some songs appear separated I have respected the original intention of the vote when tracks appear joined, except when the votes have been disparate.Although some songs appear separated I have respected the original intention of the vote when tracks appear joined, except when the votes have been disparate.

If anything needs to be changed could be a subject in the forum thread.

Interesting list so far as expected. How many votes do songs at this level have?

Chuck Mangione (278) played with Jazz Messengers for a while. Put together 80 min of cool jazzy rock in the 70s that still sounds good which is unusual. Of course he had the jazz police after him. Check out 20th Masters and the Children of Sanchez album / soundtrack.

I had trouble coming up with a long list of instrumentals that I love because a lot of early rock instrumentals (i.e. late 50s-early 60s) sound "samey" to me and while there are examples of jazz (and I include big band swing music in this) that I enjoy I'm still a pretty big novice in that arena. This means that a lot of the songs I am the "best fan" of are based on relatively few listens. My take on this a couple years from now will probably be a better bellwether of how I feel about "Egyptian Reggae" among others. But if it made my list at all I obviously liked it. 😊

You're right. "The lonely bull" had 2 different votes for 2 different versions. That's why it has to be left out of the list.

I'll have to compare them more closely but at first blush they sound super similar to me. Might be a bit more bass guitar on the Ventures cut.

"Green Onions" and "Misirlou" projected high and now The "Egyptian Reggae" on place 293. Exciting!
I had trouble coming up with a long list of instrumentals that I love because a lot of early rock instrumentals (i.e. late 50s-early 60s) sound "samey" to me and while there are examples of jazz (and I include big band swing music in this) that I enjoy I'm still a pretty big novice in that arena. This means that a lot of the songs I am the "best fan" of are based on relatively few listens. My take on this a couple years from now will probably be a better bellwether of how I feel about "Egyptian Reggae" among others. But if it made my list at all I obviously liked it. 😊
Who doesn't like the Egyptian Reggae! :)

That was probably me.

It's funny to see these great instrumentals in completely different genres come up: Mike Oldfield, Thelonious Monk, Candy Dulfer etc. all in the same list. A lot of good music to discover here.
