Whistling in Rock Songs (be liberal with "rock")
Name the band and song or artist and song that has a memorable whistle section of a particular song. I'll post a list shortly after we get going. I'm interested to see how many people come up with.

Andrew Bird is the best person I know who currently uses whistling. He's coming to Variety Playhouse in September.

What was that power rock song in the late 90s "Wings of Change" or something like that. Used whistling quite prominently.

Yes, as the Winds Of Change are blowing, as I'm Sittin' On The Dock of The Bay.

You see, I was Walking The Dog, thinking about my Golden Years, when I caught up with Julio down by the School Yard. He was singing The Whistling Song, and it made me think of The Stranger that he'd become. He did have his Centerfold girlfriend with him though, and she was driving me crazy, the way she chose to Walk Like An Egyptian.

Anyway, Julio's a Jealous Guy, so I just sat down at the bay with my dog.. just the Two Of Us.

There's whistling in Blackbird? Or are you referring to the bird singing in the background?
