Seano's Top 22 Instrumentals

I'm at a crossroads. The combination of loss for words/writers block/bite my tongue in my life right now is staggering. My state of mind is mute..innocent bystander..middle of the road miscreant. I am the Cliff Notes version of my former self. I am an auctioneer with novocaine mouth selling silence to a sleeping pack of mimes. You get my drift.

To musically celebrate, the agonizing nothingness of nothing to say.. here are my Top 25 Instrumentals of all time, without any commentary whatsoever.

1) Ending( An Ascent)-Brian Eno

5) Bass Trap-U2
6) YYZ-Rush
7) Third Stone From the Sun-The Jimi Hendrix Experience
8) Cause We've Ended as Lovers- Jeff Beck
9) Quadrant- Billy Cobham
10) Fluff-Black Sabbath
11) Whitewash-Buckethead
12) Subcutaneous Phat- Desert sessions Vol. 9 & 10
13) Frankenstein- Edgar Winter Group
14) Hocus Pocus- Focus
15) Apostrophe- Frank Zappa
