What are your favourite tracks with "Whistling" being used? I have been listening to the band GRAVEYARD and they do a remarkable instrumental .The whistling enhances the track to make it like an old classic Western soundtrack.

Any songs with whistling come to mind ?

Excellent thread idea, Lou :tup:


When I think of whistling in a song, the first to come to mind is

Winds of Change - Scorpions

Excellent choice Magic..."Winds of Change" is a classic whistling song and I too would vote this no 1 !!

....strangely after all these years I can still picture our friend Sweaty whistling this when he purchased the 7 in single on vinyl :D

Otis My Man!

...I know this is a "rock" forum but to me this is the first that comes to mind even if the whistling comes at the end of the song.



Tidbit: Paul Rodgers covered this song at some show but did not know how to whistle so bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn had to do it for him.

Don't know how this fared at the time in other countries, but it was No 1 in the UK three months after Lennon's death. A damn fine cover too, with Brian Ferry's whistle definitely adding to the song.

One fine example of (short) whistling, Saxon's Street Fighting Gang from their excellent Wheels Of Steel Album:

This would've been my top pick :grinthumb




The Black Keys - Tighten Up

This also springs to mind


Guns N' Roses - Patience


You can't have a thread on whistling without mentioning Roger Whittaker - best damn whistler I've ever heard!
