Most mornings, I wake up thinking, "When is someone finally going to catalog, classify, and rate the saxophone solos of dozens of '80s hits?" Well, now someone has, complete with audio clips and icons denoting qualities like "Middle-School Level" and "Vibrato Overuse". Of all the stylistic tics that define '80s pop, none sound more dated than the faux sophistication of the sax solo. Cheap synthesizers and primitive drum machines have made a strong comeback, but you won't be hearing solos like this again outside the occasional Michelob commercial.
(Thanks for the link, Luke!)

Just yesterday I was listening to the radio (I do this every few months to remind myself why I love my iPod so much), and "Urgent" by Foreigner came on, and I was thinking to myself, "Self, there just isn't anything that dates '80s pop and rock quite as much as the hot sax solo - it's an art-form that seems to have died out with teased hair and bimbo groupies in spandex leotards."
I'm so glad that you shared this link.
very funny, yet i must disagree with his decision on the solo in Bad to the Bone, the song is supposed to sound badass
As a sax man myself...
Bring back the solo!
The author's omission of "He Can't Love You Like I Love You" by the Michael Stanley Band is absolutely criminal.
Go back to 1957's "Whispering Bells" by The Del-Vikings and tell me what you think of the opening sax.

How can you not fall in love (or lust) to the sensual sax solo of Careless Whisper by Wham! ?
Don't Go Changing by Billy Joel
Sax Solo by Phil Woods = Nice.
Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight by James Taylor
Sax Solo by Michael Brecker = Nice.
Anything by Kenny G = NOT NICE!
Bob Seger, Turn The Page (solo by Alto Reed) - One of my favorite Seger songs, and hearing the sax to start the song is pretty cool ... it was even better live ... all the lights went out, one spotlight comes up, Alto Reed steps into the spot, and the crowd goes wild. Plus, there's something really awesome about a Saxman named Alto Reed.
WOW . . . Sooo I guess people have more time on our hands than we thought of!
But the funny thing is, I did listen to a few and I'll have to agree.
Man, lol the 80s were TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!
ahhh the good ol days! ;-p
