Another new song that I enjoy so much that it almost feels like cheating, released in October 2021, "DIE." by Johnny Goth:

A couple of videos by the same pianist (one is limited to ten snippets while the other is a hundred snippets):
The first one has duets with a flautist who also plays piccolo.

I apologize for the classical music here. (I used to play both violin and concert harp.)

I like the Doobie Brothers. They have distinct ‘scatting’ guitar signature.
But I like Lou Reed more as a guitarist

Another "oldie but moldy" that some of the OFs might recall:

In case the song's taken down, it's The Rain, The Park & Other Things by The Cowsills, 1967.

This was, 'pop-pickers', believe it or not, a No.1 hit in the UK, Belgium and New Zealand!

Written (?) by Nigel Fletcher and Rob Woodward, recorded in Woodward's front room, with his mother Hilda on piano.

Released in 1972, posted here as evidence of how bloody hopeless the 70s sometimes were.

It bombed here, but was picked up in Belgium and used on a current affairs programme (?), becoming a hit, reaching No.1 in the Belgian singles chart. Re-released in the UK and, backed by BBC Radio 1 DJ Noel Edmonds, it became a hit and was No.1 for four weeks. In New Zealand, the song was No.1 for five weeks, as well as reaching the top spot in Ireland, and the Top 10 in Canada and Australia, but – curiously – did not chart in the United States.

Lyrics:
Mouldy old dough
Mouldy old dough

Mouldy old dough
Mouldy old dough

Deep stuff. 'mouldy old dough' is supposedly an adaptation of the 1920s jazz phrase, 'vo-de-o-do'.

... go figure ...
