Sometimes I find it relaxing to just clear out the rest of the music and listen to John playing. NOT INCLUDING ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST OR UNDER PRESSURE(those are way too obvious) Here are my top 5 absolute favorites:

From greatest to least

1) Dragon Attack (the Game)
2) Millionaire Waltz (ADATR)
3) You're my best Friend (ANATO)
4) Bicycle Race (Jazz)
5) The Prophet's Song (ANATO)

If you haven't ever payed attention to these parts, I reccomend going back and listening again!
