The tambourine. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Not a featured instrument by any stretch of the imagination. Search for top 10 tambourine songs on the internet and you come up with a number of sites. Here is my list:
10. Wheels by The Foo Fighters This is the only song included on the list from the last 30 years. I don’t know much about the Foo Fighters, but I know this song because Day Ja Voo covers it and I really like it. When you finally hit the ground, there ‘s another chance to get it right.
9. Elenore by The Turtles This song was meant as a satire of Happy Together; the powers that be wanted more of the same, so The Turtles gave it to them. “You’re my pride and joy, etc.” What is included in etc., anyway? I think the song is swell.
