    Thank you sooo much for this website! It helped me find a great song I never knew the name of. Hearing Lisa Simpson play Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" reminded me how much I liked this song, but I never would have guessed the name. Seriously, to find it, I googled "best saxophone solo ever" and "soft rock". Isn't that WILD? Thanks again.
