NOTE: This is a listing of some rock and pop songs that include flute playing.In many cases, the recording artist has a band member who is a fulltime woodwindplayer, so that artist would have multiple recordings including flute. In thosecases, I picked one of my favorites. I may in some cases bemistaking piccolo or recorder or mellotron or something else for flute sound. Much of this I'm doing from memory.
