The Beatles - Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)

"Norwegian Wood" was, according to Wikipedia, the first time a sitar was used in a rock song. Whether this is true or not I cannot say, but it is a wonderful song, in large part due to George Harrison's mysteriously-sounding sitar. It must have sounded incredibly strange at the time, when it appeared on The Beatles' 1965 album Rubber Soul, and it still sounds pretty strange. It also sounds absolutely great, of course!
