Samba Pa Ti too
This one always gets me!
Not really chart-topping though ...
One of my favorite Tull numbers , I used to walk around at work whistling it ( not the solo ) . Such a catchy riff , and it has a great bass part by the very talented Glenn Cornick ( RIP Glenn ) . Pretty amazing is the flute work by Ian , as he basically learned the instrument as the band progressed , having never had any real training . And yes , it was adapted from a J.S. Bach piece .
have Booker T and the MGs been in this thread yet?
while we wait for the librarian to answer let's listen to Tubular Bells!

listening to a song with vocals is like watching the movie and listening to instrumental music is like reading the book
My wife likes music with lyrics, and for the most part, I prefer instrumental music.
I tell her, lyrics are to music, what nagging is to marriage. That usually gets me an elbow to the ribs.
Booker T Jones is the greatest human on earth!
@CAR63 You won the thread with this! Only the greatest and most influential instrumental record of all time!
I can't take any credit for suggesting Green Onions , my comment was on Bouree by Tull . However , I have to agree that Green Onions is definitely a top contender , I'm sure it got more airplay than Bouree . But thanks Scott for the mention !!
American Patrol Glenn Miller - PLAY LOUD!! So uplifting and powerful, loads of catchy "hooks" all in one tune. It is also a great tune for working out the melody lines on guitar, these sorts of lines can add huge musicality to your playing! Fabulous way of learning chord tones instead of scales, and I use chord tones pretty much all the time. Big band stuff is a brilliant way of learning interesting licks.
Another favorite of mine came to mind while I was practicing some licks today , Asshton Park on James Gang Rides Again . Really catchy tune done by Mr. Walsh . Can't say I ever heard it on the radio , but I played the s*** out of that album when it came out .
Peter Gunn charted a couple times. Never got to number one.
Guns of Navarone by The Skatalites.
