R&P- your vote for the best instrumental piece of the year?

Given that it's December, I guess we should be asking a few of these type of questions.

Update:

Happy Christmas Sarcastatron!

    Well long time no see Mr. Livin'.  Hope you're keeping well. And my vote goes to Weasel Rhapsody by Thin Lizzy. Granted it was recorded round 1975, but only officially was released with the Thin Lizzy Rock Legends box set there in October.

    I would, of course,  have to second  "Weasel Rhapsody" by Thin Lizzy.  LOL .

    A dreamy ambient work for a change...

    Recorded over a 15-year period, the album, 'Mixing Colours' began with Roger improvising melodies using a digital MIDI keyboard and sending them to Brian, who altered their timbres and textures. 

    The standout track for me is "Snow." I can't help listening to it without thinking of Harold Budd & John Foxx's "When The City Stops For Snow" and Debussy's "The Snow Is Dancing," but I think that's maybe a title thing. It's an incredible composition. One of those where you hear it the first time, then have to rewind to the start to check - was it really that good? Then it keeps getting better, and suddenly you've played it like 5 times in a row :)

    A perfect antidote to these stressful times...
