    Plamen's list above omits the Rolling Stone's version of "Love in Vain" with Ry Cooder doing a great mando solo.

    I think of Seals and Crofts in the 70’s as introducing the mandolin in “Soft rock” music as pioneers. Dash Croft’s use of the mandolin is downright amazing, especially in the early albums. I also like the Waterboy’s Fisherman’s Blues. I play mostly 70’s era rock music with my mandolin and a whole lot of it sounds great on the mandolin, especially the more acoustic oriented artists and bands, ( Cat Stevens, America, John Prince, etc, etc.).

    I didn't hear any mandolin from Hootie and the Blowfish's "Running from an Angel"...but there is mandolin from Hootie's song "I Only Wanna be with You".
    I think there's mandolin in The Murmurs "You Suck".
    There may be mandolin...or a capo guitar on Lisa Loeb's "Stay (I Missed You)".
    Here's a latest song with mandolin...The Divine Comedy's "I'm a Stranger".
    Barenaked Ladies played an electric mandolin on the last part "Intermittently"...and that IS a Barenaked Song as well...don't ask!
    The Moody Blues have a song with Mandolin played by Justin Hayward..."Dawning is the Day".

    There is a mandolin in the Scorpions' "Born to touch your feelings", a great piece to add to your list...

    I happened to be listening to the 3 CD version of their final (before reunion) album in 1987 "Two-Fisted Tales" and thought about this thread and whether any specific songs had ever been mentioned. Mandolin credited to Stephen McCarthy (and prominent), though Sid Griffin definitely played mandolin with other projects.

    The Long Ryders - The Light Gets in the Way (w/David Hidalgo on accordian)
    The Long Ryders - Harriet Tubman's Gonna Carry Me Home

    (Sorry, no youtube links, blocked at work. Maybe later when I'm at home)

    The 3rd disc is a live show from Palm Springs in 1987 and features those same two songs also featuring mandolin.

    It's hard to believe that, in the 14 years of this thread, nobody has mentioned...

    Sonny & Cher - Baby Don't Go

    ... where the pre-chorus vocal lines are overlaid by very sweetly tremoloed mandolin.

    (No, I didn't actually re-read all 311 posts above, but I did search the Cafe finding no reference.)

    Sorry for my late posting, but I just joined this forum a few weeks ago, and noticed this thread. I got one that goes way back in time. One of my all time favorite songs by any artist: It's Now or Never by Elvis Presley. If I am not mistaken, the mando on the recording was played by Tommy Tedesco.
