Favorite Songs/Solos Using Tremolo Bar

I finally bought a guitar with a tremolo bar that stays in tune so I'm looking for inspiring/fun song or solo suggestions. Rush - Red Sector A and the solo in The Fixx - Outside are two I've enjoyed so far. Thanks in advance!

Scorpions Tokyo Tapes. e.g.: "Fly to the Rainbow",
Satriani: Surfing with the Alien
Many songs by David Gilmour

Michael Lee Firkins uses it like a "harmonica-slide" effect

Lots of Van Halen of course. Ain't Talking Bout Love is a good one to help get you accustomed to timing the dips while picking, in the opening riff. It's easy to hear if it's not done just right.

Firkins used the bar to emulate slide back in the day and now he just plays actual slide.

Around the time of Guitar Shop there was an interview with Jeff Beck where he was asked what new guitarists he was liking - Firkins was the only name he mentioned ;)

Hey there

Youtube has somuch amazing guitarists... here are two of my favorit songs to play when exercising the whammybar. Very melodic and beautifull guitarplaying...

Some years ago the TAB files and backingtracks were free for download, but these days there behind a paywall that i understand fully.
