You know how songs like "Purple People Eater" and "I'm Walkin'" have these cool horn solos? Well, I'd love to get a collection of em.

I think it's a french horn in The Beatles' "For No One" (an amazing song, by the way)

"Alone Again Or" by Love has the coolest Tijuana Brass solo I've ever heard. It pops out of nowhere and nails the song into your head.

Ahhh! That's the song from Bottle Rocket, right? It's not on the soundtrack but playing that song now I realize it's the song I was missing.

(I never really searched for it).

First song I thought of when I saw this thread:
P_A24cHNFMo

And, of course, Johnny Cash's version of Ring of Fire has that great marriachi sound.

"That is Rock and Roll" by The Coasters. A really kickin' sax solo, in my opinion, and the whole song is great.

Triple S

Penny Lane is the first song I thought of.

Are you looking for the 'unexpected' horn solo (in artists/groups that don't usually employ horns, such as the 'Ring of Fire' horns already mentioned)?

If you're talking about horns in general, the obvious choices include bands such as Blood, Sweat, and Tears ("Spinnin' Wheel", etc.) and early Chicago (back when they were Chicago Transit Authority). Or Ides of March's "Vehicle".

And, of course...the great James Brown & his Famous Flames, although I don't know how many actual solos JB permitted. More of a tight section.

(I never really searched for it).The Damned did a great cover of this on their Anything album:
