sometimes solos come from out of nowhere in a song, much to the surprise & delight of the listener.

those solos are in no way necessary for their respective songs, but they rule nonetheless.

post your favorites here.

this is a prime example of what i'm talkin bout:

I'd argue that The Jazz Police would still be a fantastically fun song without the guitar at 2:56--or at the very least is about 30 seconds too long--however, it's an incredible solo. Such clean technique and fast picking while having barely any overdrive at all. SO CLEAN

1:56 The synth solo's totally not crucial to the song, but holy smokes that synth patch. Damn! That rhythm section.

Candy is one of THE BEST non-canon solos and the extended version of the song just keeps going with more sax and electric guitar work, so good.

I was revisiting this gem, and the solo definitely comes out of nowhere, much to the surprise and delight of me, the listener.
