I was driving along, grooving to the smooth FM stylings of Chic's "Good Times" when it hit me that they have really sucky violins in that tune.
Well, that made me wonder:
Has there ever been a rock/soul/R&B tune that was BETTER for having violins in it?
I can't think of any.
Paul Simon's "Something So Right" is my most outstandingly egregious example of violins killing a tune. Right now.
Now, don't get me wrong, fiddle can be just fine...
"Come on Eileen" needs that fiddle. I'm talking violins.
So, anyway. Good rock tunes with violin?
