80s-sax-soloUntil I came across http://imacomputa.org/sax/, I had no idea how prevalent the ‘Sax Solo’ was in 1980’s Pop music. Ryan, the author, has painstakingly cataloged and rated some of the 1980’s most god-awful sax solos.  A typical entry is seen below:

This solo wasn’t in the 80s, but it’s included here because it seems to have created the formula that became so popular for the next decade. Unmemorable song + Super dramatic sax solo = Success. Parts of it are so forgettable that many people suggesting this song claimed it had no words at all.
