Prelude to The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*: "Classical Gas" from Mason Williams

We are less than two months away from the 2015 version of The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*.  We updated the special to coincide with the 60th birthday of the Rock Era, which will be July 9.

Instrumentals just aren't what they used to be.  It's been years since someone achieved a Top 10 song with an instrumental, much less a #1.  Some of the ones we have been featuring are former members of The Top 500 Songs Club*.  There are now just two instrumentals in the elite list.

This great song from 1968 just missed the cut--"Classical Gas", from Mason Williams...
