Incorrect. Every song needs a sax solo.
howbout more cowbell
Even more cowbell than more cowbell!
Oops! All cowbells!
He’s a real sax machine
i got a fever
And the only prescription... Is more cowbell!
Faxing Berlin intensifies
You can't milk those.
Thanks, I listened to the whole thing, made my day. Such a great song.
It has so many layers too. Every time I find something new.
Fun fact - the sexaphone was invented to harness the power of this song.
The sexaphone? That must be a potent, alluring instrument that feels good to touch.
Lick my reed and find out princess.
I was expecting Saxsquatch
Does it count if it's relevant to the conversation?
BTW the answer is yes.
I knew it, but I clicked anyway and I enjoyed it.
How?.... how do I keep?... But I know how the internet works so how do I keep clicking??? .... ah have your internet point.
Then you need to check out a South African band called Goldfish. They combine jazzy, saxxy stuff with EDM brilliantly.
Seen these lads live. They cycled through instruments as they went through their set. It was incredible.
Or Shrezzers! Metal band with a sax. I love them
Nice! I just listened to Noodles. It's a bit boy-bandy for me but I love the fusion of metal with sax
Cello metal (e.g. Apocalyptica) is pretty good as well along with general melodic metalcore (Amaranthe)
I just linked them in another comment. They’re great
sick suggestion! i luv it!
TY for telling me about this guys!
thanks for the suggestion/recommendation
You got me hooked on some new music. Thanks bud!
Thanks for the rec!
Specifically the Baker Street Sax Solo.
That saxophone skater angel in Midnight Gospel would be great in life, too...
Even heavy metal needs one from time to time

FUCKING PLAY SOMETHING, SAX MAN!
(what the fuck are you doing?!)
Damn no lie that shit was fire. Proud to be an American boy just this once
The only thing better than a sax solo is two sax solos.
What about a sax duo
Why a duo when you can have a sax duel?
classic sax subway duel
Except for My Lovely Horse
We have to lose that sax solo!
No song is so bad that it can't be made worse by a sax solo.
As well as a bass solo
He’s wrong, that song always needed a sax solo
Those bars he played in were the emptiest sax-shaped void I've ever heard
Sounds like a line from a 50’s noir detective film!
Here's listening to you, sax
Is there anything there normally that was left out here? Our is the actual song really just .. empty there?
It's so weird to think they wouldn't put anything there
He cuts to an different version of the song. You can hear how the stereo image of the instrumental suddenly switches.
The regular radio edit of the song doesn't feature that part, Estelle has her "La la la" hook after the chorus. My guess is he found an instrumental version and cut to that.
EDIT: Judging by the synth that kicks in again in the end, it's probably a recreation of the instrumental.
It's specifically the 'no rap' version which is hard as hell to find in good quality, as it was never released officially.
Here it is: https://youtu.be/VzuU31rfeDk
It's also vastly superior in my opinion.
What? Without Kanye this is just a decent pop rnb tune. One of my favourite Kanye features.
Boooooooooooooo, iconic and top tier kanye verse not to mention one of the best rap features on a pop song ever
I listened through that entire version, but the part from the video is not in there. It's probably taken from this version.
My guess is he just looped a few quieter bars multiple times to give him space for the solo.
It’s a song called American Boy and the empty part has Kanye singing over it, this version of the song used to play at an old job of mine all the time with the empty part without Kanye also
A sax solo will fit pretty much any R&B or hip hop flavoured track by default.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OBRsrK8nMI This is by far the best one.
Wow! Remember we used to party like that? Close to each other and without masks.
Really makes me think about all those times in college we’d cram 100+ people in a 3 bedroom house, passing around and sharing bottles of liquor and blunts, not a mask or care of disease in sight. Those were the days.
I think the word is “that need them badly”
That's four words.
That's three words
That’s five letters and an apostrophe.
That's ten syllables
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
When the moon hits your knees and you mispronounce trees,
When the jaws open wide, and there’s more jaws inside.
That’s a moray.
When the ball hits your head, and you're sat in row Z.
When your horse munches straw and the bales total four.
That's some more hay.
Actually (that)’s four letters. That’s is five letters and an apostrophe!
But now I created a paradox by adding parentheses...:(
Happy cake day you awesome and amazingly beautiful person! I hope you have a great day and stay safe :]
I hope he’s practicing safe sax
Thanks, I haven't heard that joke since 1997
It is not a joke and you propably should go for a std test.
That implies that anyone on Reddit is capable of catching one.
Everyone can get a Saxophonically transimitted Disease.
We're in trouble.
Something something announcers' table
And best to avoid anal sax altogether.
Are you kidding? This guy would make for prime anal.
I missed the first masterpiece. I need it. Stat!
Here ya go
May you always find the perfect song to suit your mood instantly on shuffle.
One of the greatest thankful wishes I've ever seen!
Alexa, play All By Myself
This one is so good 🔥
Thanks I think that one is even better
Can someone just cut that in to the song for me plz
That, as I believe the kids are fond of saying these days, SLAPS!!
(Did I say that right?)
That is one handsome sax player.
Like, you just know he is a skilled kisser.
The main masterpiece here is his face tbh
I’m a straight married dude and had the sudden urge to throw my tighty whiteys at him.
I know right. I'm a mostly straight guy and Id kiss the fuck out of that dude.
Ever heard of Griz?
You may be in luck
He can embouchure all day
I’m a straight married dude and I accidentally drooled a little...I don’t know why...
He kinda reminds me of John Francis Daley.
I absolutely despise tiktok videos ..BUT I appreciate this young mans talent and skill and do enjoy his musical taste rock on dude 🤘🏽
I like how there’s no rational reason to hate a whole platform for its bad parts (or else we wouldn’t be on reddit) but the circlejerk continues.
No rational reason you say?
Thank you for this! I’m glad it’s not only people hating it because of dumb hype house people, which is the impression I get a lot.
Not to do a whatabout but isn’t reddit also owned by a Chinese company
partially. which is why people are protesting. I've been seeing a lot of Chinese censorship, especially on subs like r/wholesomememes
tik tok bad upvotes to the left 👈👈👈
TikTok, this how we rock
Write your hate in the comments and do it for your block (um)
TikTok, this how we rock
Grease the next pole and cum into your sock (um)
TikTok, this how we rock
(TikTok, you don't stop...)
The irony of Reddit is that it hates TikTok but continuously shares TikTok videos.
People don't hate tiktok videos, they just hate bad videos
Even this person just now said they liked this video.
No Reddit hates TikTok
I have no interest in joining or using TikTok but I'm very glad people post the quality stuff here. That's the beautiful thing about Reddit. I don't have to bother with Twitter, Facebook, or TikTok. I can just log into Reddit and I feel like I get the good stuff anyway.
This is it! I don’t hate TikTok but i’ll never scrool that feed again, 90% is absolute shite. And the good stuff ends up here anyways
you should hate tiktok, it's a shit data collecting chinese propaganda machine
A lot of reddit hates reddit as well so I'm not sure where this is going.
Nah I hate tiktok. It's a Chinese company stealing data. I prefer an American company stealing my data thank you very much
Reddit hates TikTok videos because Reddit used to be the first platform these types of videos would show up on first. Now it’s no different than Facebook when it reposts videos from days or weeks ago from TikTok. Reddit has become the jealous friend.
Uhm I'm pretty sure Reddit hates TikTok because if you install TikTok you give China consent to use your phone data at all times, even when you are not actively using the app. That's why I hate it at least.
Along with this short list of reasons
Important to note: reddit isn't one weird guy, but a collection of millions of people. So although what you said might apply to a lot of people, it's important to remember there are others that hate it for valid concerns.
Using the tiktok app, it is incredibly hard to find decent videos.
The right reddit just has them all ready for you.
Tiktok needs way better interface so it not constantly pushing twerking 12 year olds and rich "influences" showing off.
How long have you been using it. Make sure you mark videos you don't like as not interesting and heart the ones you like.
I did this and I only get quality videos now. It's way better for me since I don't have to wait if Reddit posts it.
Reddit is comprised of 400 million active accounts ya half-wit.
It's not some schizophrenic person.
You hate all videos in a platform when the platform is extremely broad with tons of content for anyone? Seems like an extreme hatred for things not hurting you.
I'm aware I'm going off on a tangent here, but I stopped despising things a couple of years ago and it made my life a lot better. I've gone through the past five years seeing people despise Donald Trump, billionaires, social justice warriors, Capitol rioters, Hillary Clinton, Ben Shapiro, tech executives, cancel culture, trans activists, anti maskers, alt-righters, Ajit Pai, Greta Thunberg, Wall Steet, socialists, reality stars, sexists, satanic baby eaters, the ICE, anti-vaxers, Boris Johnson, Karens, white supremacists, vegans, AOC, televangelists, Cathy Newman and Jordan Peterson, law enforcement officers, climate change deniers, Ted Cruz, socialists, Harvey Wenstein, leftists, cat callers, Southern separatists, Libertarians, Muslims ... I used to hate many things too, but now that I know that I do not have to feel anything, just because I think something is wrong, I am a happier and lighter person to be around.
That's a pretty wild tangent to go off on though. Tiktok isn't in the same conversation as a lot of those people.
If you give a man a gift, and he does not accept or receive it is it his gift, or yours? The same goes with anger. If you give a man anger and he does not receive it, then the anger belongs to you.
If Facebook is for old ignorant boomers, Reddit is for middle aged millennial cranks
Redditors entering "get off my lawn" territory
What do you mean. Reddit has always been like this
Why do you despise tiktok videos when there's literally hundreds if not thousands of videos just like this one?
The musical side of that platform is full of extremely talented and creative people.
Giving the NSA my data sounds lit but giving my data to Chinese communist dictatorship sounds much better 👍
If natalie portman was a man
More like Keira Knightley.
Are they not the same picture??
It's the eyebrows
I cannot unsee that now...
You see Natalie Portman, but I see Handsome Keira Knightley.
Still time for that to happen.
Ok, now let’s make this a thing with that guy who put a traffic cone in his bass saxophone
Moon hooch! Love those guys
He's part of Moon Hooch. Great band.
Very talented guy and deadly attractive
We can be pro Fortnite gamers...
lol i noticed that to.
I’d really love to
I was expecting some Michael Brecker/Chris Potter shit. It's very cool and tasteful, but idk about nextfucknglevel.
Years ago Puff Daddy had a reality show called Making His Band. It was an audition for his touring band. So they had guitars, vocals, piano, bassz and drums audition (there was one violist). They actually played this song in the first episode, and some of those solos were absolutely amazing. Too bad they cancelled it. I seen some of the contestants in other backing bands for people like Childish Gambino
bro its smooth jazz blues scales but over POP TUNES omg dude how can't you see how groundbreaking and original this is? NEXTFUCKINGLEVEL!!!!!!1!
Some people are easily impressed. It’s not like Kenny G sells zero records. There’s a generation of grey haired ladies who get ‘in the mood’ to him.
And have you seen how hot and bothered they get when they listen to Duke Silver?
Yeah he is
Gee, ya never really know how much you hate a sax riff until you hear it played 15 times by a dude with a mullet.
I hope there is a sax revival that comes out of this. Sea shanties, sax solos... do some good, internet.
What does he mean with "don't need them"? To me It sounds like they definitely need them
Most likely so more people interact with his post by telling how great it was. He knew, which is shame...he could have just said something like: "I spiced this track up a bit, what do you think"? Or whatever, but not: "Here's another song where a saxophone doesn't fit" while it clearly does.
Ah well, my pet peeve.
Now that you say it, actually makes sense.. it worked on me fuck lol
Why's that a peeve? Seems like a totally reasonable thing to do.
It's a TikTok trend. You say "adding * instrument * to songs that don't need them" there's all sorts of people that add drums, piano, etc.
I love how he play his sax.
This has a massive "Marc Rebillet x Kenny Beats" vibe when he adds in the church organ.
God damn he has some fucking pipes. Glorious.
He is bringing back horrible memories of mid 1980’s overuse of saxophone in music.
It actually bangs tho
it's the fortnite song
You can tell this dude loves what he does and that makes me happy.
Wow i forgot this song existed
Now this song will be missing something when I hear it. Thanks
What is the name of the song?
American Boy by Estelle (I think that’s her name if I remember correctly) ft Kanye West
You got it.
As a sax player who just listened to this song on my playlist, pop needs way more sax solos. They've got these empty bridge sections and a satisfying chord progression just begging to be soloed over.
So far I've only been able to satisfy this need by listening to the few jazz remixes of pop that I can find, but this is great.
I feel like someone did this already on diddy's making the band.
We really need to bring sax back in to the mainstream.
Its shame it ever left the mainstream, i want to see sax everyone. Sax in songs sax on the streets i want sax in schools or sax at malls. Its such a wonderful brassy instrument I can’t help but feel joy listening to those masterfully blown notes.
Ya like jazz?
This guy blows
Just hook it to my veins
This sax solo was so smooth that my laptop literally slid off the table and landed on the floor.
Now do Baker Street
Give the people what they want. Sax solo over the fortnite kids remake of American Boy
Bill Clinton approved
I don't like why, or since when, but i don't like saxo. It looks amazingly cool, but...i can't "hear" the wow on it.
All he doe is play sax over jazz that's been appropriated for another genre.
It's literally playing sax in a song that begs for it.
80's is back
