Apache – Song Of The Day

Apache

Written by Jerry Lordan, “Apache” is an instrumental piece of music which has been interpreted many times since The Shadows had a considerable hit with it back in 1960. From Incredible Bongo Band‘s groovier take on the song to Link Wray‘s typically rocky and back-to-basics cover, the tune seemed to always work somehow, even when only a sample of it was used for various hip-hop tracks. Its raw Western-style vibe was always so atmospheric and inherently cool that the song never even needed lyrics: the guitar would simply say it all.
