The Flute rules "The List"

It's origins can be traced back 45, ooo years to caves in Germany where what appeared to be the first flutes were crafted out of animal bone.  The modern Flute was developed in 1832 and made of metal.  Years later rockers like Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull would incorporate the flute into rock music.  No doubt happy that they were not blowing into a bone.  So tonight on "The List"...I played 7 songs with some mighty fine flute tootin!  Here you go;

Hocus Pocus-Focus

Can't You See-Marshall Tucker Band

Spill the Wine-Eric Burdon and War

Goin Up the Country-Canned Heat

Down Under-Men at Work

Love Alive-Heart

Locomotive Breath (the best!)-Jethro Tull

So that's it...that's "The List."  What did I miss...oh, as I'm typing this Strange Way from Firefall comes to mind!  What would you add?  Tomorrow night,  not only do The Who "Sell Out" but so do CCR, The Cars, Led Zeppelin and others whose songs have been featured in ad campaigns...It's Rockonomics!
