What are your favorite songs that don't have any lyrics?

Was thinking about this today and didn't see a similar existing thread. Classical music doesn't count obviously.

One of mine: Meat Puppet's "I'm a Mindless Idiot."

I'm a big fan of THE BEATLES, THE ROLLING STONES and ELTON JOHN (his early stuff). If u take their songs out of the equation, I luv the 2 songs WHAT IS LIFE? by George Harrison and BABY BLUE by Badfinger.

Explosions in the Sky -- "Your Hand in Mine"



Mum -- "I'm 9 Today"



Mono (Japan) -- "Mere Your Pathetique Light"



... basically everything by those three bands. As previously mentioned, I also like quite a bit of jazz.

Songs, by definition, must have a vocal component. Seems like most of the picks here are instrumentals.

This. From the thread title, I expected lots of references to gibberish songs, like most of Cocteau Twins' output and the like. As for the Meat Pups, my favorite of theirs that is sans lyrics (at least of the discernible variety) is:

If we're talking instrumentals, I love "Overture from Tommy" by the Assembled Multitude. If we're talking gibberish, "Onomatopoeia" by Todd Rundgren.
