    Yes, indeed! And it looks like it's getting to be time to update the list. Good to see so many contributions coming in, and from all over the globe. I have a bit of free time on my hands, now that a rather busy November has passed. I'll get to this soon. Meanwhile, if anyone sees anything missing from the list, now would be a good time to ring in. Cheers!

    Truly a wonderful idea. Thanks to you I have gone and got some of these songs and have a sweetly rockbye mando collection on computer which I enjoy playing very loud. Also managed with my perfect pitch to hear the chords for accompaniment for "Boat on the River" by Styx. Still a beginner, but only need A major, C minor and F and then I am on my way to playing "Boat on the River" The lick in the middle will obviously also still require work. With many thanks.

    Hey folks - Looks like I'm gearing up to collate and update the list. That is, it's a bit of a process, the way I do it, and I've taken the first couple of steps. If anyone has some additions, now would be a good time to post them. Just please - scan through what we have already first, to avoid duplications. I swear - if I see one more mention of "Galway Girl," I might have to look it up and listen to it! Also, all I really need for an entry is info in this format: "artist/band name - song title." Thanks!

    I didn't see this one in the most recent list.

    Bad Company, Silver, Blue & Gold. Mick Ralphs plays some fine mandolin during the lead break.

    Wow! Stunned to learn this. Maybe this will help me to, um, dislike them a bit less ...

    Just goes to show - sometimes you just have to pay attention to find what was there all along. I'm sure this song has drifted past my consciousness a hundred times or more, yet I never noticed this, because I have never cared for Bad Company. This isn't going to dramatically change my world, but still ... I learn something just about every day around here. Thanks, Ed!

    Certainly agreed. One is constantly learning here in the cafe. Somewhat of a cross post, but I think I propose a rock mando convention to be held in SA - wow how's that for boosting mando awareness?

    Now let me watch the other threads

    Happy rockin'

    Hi all I am not sure when the next list update is: though Heart does a version of the song "You're the voice." Lovely riff of mando in the middle of the song in the lead break and also at the end - you should just add that one to the list.

    Best and happy strummin in the mandosphere!

    I know, I'm well past when I last toyed with updating. Things got pretty busy for me, so that's been good (for me, anyway). Um, well, gee ... well, if someone in the know can post a list of songs by The Lumineers and Imagine Dragons that include mandolin, or can tell me whether it's on every track, that would help.

    You do sound rather busy - so good luck with that update - way to much of a newby to get involved with assisting with an update - though I work in a library. So I am going to leave it to all the seasoned hands who are much more immersed in things mandolin and really no the business and doings in the mandosphere!

    Best and happy strumming!

    It's not really all that much - just collecting additions posted since the last update, alphabetizing them and rolling them into the list. Busy work. I'll get to it.

    Ok, it gets eliminated by the acoustic guitar then comes back in at the end and THEN gets superceded by the acoustic piano. No respect for the mando.

    Well I think us mando rockers would need to do somethin' about that lack of respect. Learned e7 so now managed to play Stairway to Heaven - Actually does not sound bad, specially with some cross picking - Also at last managed "Boat on the River" by Sticks. My husband is practically begging me to perform that one at the acoustic cafe - uh uh I think that's a song for a tough masculine rocker not a tiny lady. If I had a guy on lead singer I would certainly be up for playing .... any takers for a quick flight to SA? <big smile>

    I must respectfully disagree with this analysis. The finished result is much more likely the result of the mixing process, in which tracks containing separately recorded instruments are added in varying proportions and at varying points in and stretches of time (mixed) to produce the final recording. It's not unusual for an instrument to be played throughout the entire song and then only used in the final mix at various points, according to the wishes of the artist, arranger, or producer. If this were NOT done, the result often would be cluttered chaos.

    In this instance, mandolin figures prominently in the start and end. It is what one hears first and last. Thus it makes a most memorable appearance. I am grateful for this and that it is such a key element in a big hit and Grammy-winning song. Indeed, as such it ranks highly in a very small group of big hits which feature mandolin. It may well be the last time a Grammy-winning song in a major category featured mandolin, and that was back in 1997. I don't begrudge anyone involved in this a bit, and in fact am eternally grateful to the great producer John Leventhal for including it. I think he played it, too.

    Hi just listened to the song again and I have to say, despite the use of mando only at the beginning or end, it is a startling kind of clarity and is memorable and effective, I am not sure, perhaps I am imagining it, but I also think I hear the mandolin in tiny bits throughout the song - but that could be an over imaginative ear.
    I do think it is a very good song. Want to attempt that beginning and end.

    well, one of my favorite bands, uncle tupelo's "acuff rose" is a stunner. since jay farrar played mandolin, i'm sure there are others on the uncle tupelo albums and on the first three son volt albums as well...

    Hi Everyone. It's my first post on Mandolin Cafe so I hope I do it right! One of my favorite artists is Justin Hayward from the Moody Blues. He put a solo album out way back in 1980 called Night Flight. There's a song on that album called Penumbra Moon that features some excellent, mandolin tremolo picking.

    Steve Earle & The Dukes - "The Other Kind". This song ain't nothing without the mandolin. Probably the one that made me think to take it up (er, took a few years though...)

    Thumbs up Re: listing of rock songs w/mando

    Hi there Thanks for pointing out the Moody blues.
    I love there music. In a song featured in the story "War of the World" there is also a piece of mandolin in a very sad song.
    I am pleased to hear that Justin Hayward makes room for mandolin in his music. So to did the Moody Blues in the song "Autumn Leaves/now you are not here" when they have a beautiful short session of tremolo in the piece occurring in the sound track "War of the Worlds" in (1979? I think?
    To add to my message: the song with the mandolin tremolo: "Forever Autumn." A bit of Classic sounding rock, but beautiful nonetheless.

    Has anyone mentioned "Sunny Came Home" by Shawn Colvin? Would love to find some tab on this OR maybe I can figure it out eventually. (I'm a newbie!)

    The Bangles have also used a mandolin on songs such as "I'll Set You Free" and several songs from their two latest releases Doll Revolution and Sweetheart of the Sun. Love the mando solo in their acoustic version of "What a Life."
