Favorite instrumental track

So many instrumental tracks, time for a poll to determine the favorites. I ended up adding tracks like Eine Kleine Lift Musik and Theme from Retro despite them having some form of singing in-between. Tracks who have any form of distinct singing, regardless of how brief it may be (e.g. Lot 105, Jets etc.) were not considered. Also, I didn't include outros to other songs. Hopefully I didn't forget anything...

Comment and vote.

My vote goes to French Song. 8 minutes of pure magic.

French Song is incredible.

Shimmer isn't an instrumental.

Like I said, I included any tracks that have some form of singing in-between which is not distinct, spoken words. Shimmer falls under that category.

Theme From Retro - definitely!( the vocals at the end was picked up by security as the band, or whoever entered a club "Uh what is that you have there? Looks like a recording device of some kind") The story goes something like that anyway.

The Debt Collector at Number 2

and probably French Song at 3

way at the end is Nutter.
(I wouldn't include The Great Escape)

I voted for The Debt Collector but just because I felt it was unfair that it had no votes yet :lol:

I really can't choose just one, I always loved instrumentals and I think they have been rather underestimated.
