    Still got the blues - Gary Moore
     
  3. Linda Ronstadt's version of, "Crazy," on her album, "Hasten Down The Wind." It's so slow it's almost backwards, but it's sooo smooth. ;)

    Also, "Punch Drunk," on Sade's album, "Promise." Very nice, slow instrumental tune. Sounds like something you'd hear a band play at the end of a long night.

    'Soul To Squeeze' by the Chili Peppers. IMO, it's one of Flea's best.
