"Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia.

OK, more 90's: This '93 Previn/Cutler/Thornalley composition launched the career of an Australian singer/actress/model in '97. It only reached #42 on Billboard's Hot 100 as it was first released as a radio-only promo. Rick Dees called it "the #1 radio single of the 90's". MTV's Best New Artist in '98 and 3 Grammy nominations in '99. Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: "Eruption" by Eddie VanHalen. Dang, human beings are not supposed to play that fast! The sound was aided by a phaser, Echoplex and Univox echo unit. Includes elements from the "Etude No. 2" by Kreutzer and "A Fancy", an early Baroque lute piece by Dowland. How do you choose? My all-time favorite rock guitar solo is Clapton's "Deserted Cities Of The Heart" on Cream's '68 "Wheels Of Fire".
