My all time favorite here.  The punishing of the cowbell starts about a minute in.

BOC Don't Fear the Reaper

Soaring guitar intro on this live version.

At about the 2:30 mark, the cowbelling begins in force.

Henry-Lilly, love Animals album and never would have though of that song or Floyd for cowbell. Crazy at the start of the other link rolling that car. Good finds.

Getty, BOC and a large dose of cowbell  excellent.

 

Some good ole CCR and where is the drummer? I think I could play the wash board.

I have sang along with this song on the radio 100's of time … and after just reading the lyrics for the 1st time, I've been singing more than half the lyrics completely wrong.

Dam Hugh. I feel kinda stupid.

Hard to admit but, just read the lyrics and I am also guilty. It is just incredible how off and what sometimes you think you are hearing is totally wrong. This subject will open up another thread in the future

Trouble

Psychotic Reaction

:30 mark.

So, I guess this would be more of a 'light on the cowbell' song.
