Joe Satriani - I Just Wanna Rock

(Intro is about 2 minutes long)

Artist: Joe Satriani
Song: I Just Wanna Rock
Album: Professor Satchafunkilus And The Musterion Of Rock (Click here to buy the album on Amazon)

A really cool song that originated from the idea of a robot seeing people at a rock concert and wondering what they are doing. It's amazing how Joe can create this great music from ideas like that.
It starts off with a guitar riff and a robotic voice asking "What is your purpose?". Eventually it gets the response of "I just wanna rock". Then it goes over to a talkbox solo, which according to Satriani is the voice of the robot. If you listen closely you can hear the words "I wanna rock, I wanna rock, I wanna learn how to rock with you." 
Then there is some more soloing, with the guitar riff still in the background before it goes back to the question and response from the beginning of the song.
And here's a cool video that shows a bit about how the song was recorded.

I hope you like it :)
