Get Ready For "The Summer Of Sax"


Both Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have released songs featuring a healthy dose of saxophone, prompting speculation as to whether 2011 will be the year that the instrument — invariably played by the hot guy in your high school jazz band — makes its big comeback. We’re not sure two songs are enough to call a trend, but we’re ready to embrace a sax resurgence any day.

Need more proof? We think Jon Hamm’s turn as “Sergio” on Saturday Night Live and the Lost Boys‘ saxophone scene that inspired the sketch should be enough. But if you require more sax, Buzzfeed has put together a nice collection of the sax’s greatest hits.
