Best use of a banjo in a song

Banjo rules.
"Old Man" by Neil Young. Amazing.
Vertigo(Temple Bar Mix) also rocks.

God, this thread title really cracked me up for some reason. I'm still laughing out loud about it now
I'm tired. I find trivial things hilarious when i'm sleep deprived.

Anyways, voting again for 'I Believe' by REM

I am a fan of the Indigo Girls and they do a song "Get Out the Map" - That's my favorite right now.....

I prefer "Flowers in the Window," but that's a great song nevertheless.

Also, I'd like to add "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" by the Pogues.

side by travis , great song live

i havent heard too much of the banjo in other songs so i cant say i really like it or dislike it, but nevertheless it always reminds me of Deliverance...

though i am really liking the harmonica a lot at the moment
