Another famous pop song of the early 1980s with the mandolin is Boat on the River by Styx with Tommy Shaw playing mandolin. Yesterday I heard this song in our local radio station, so I looked what I could find about this song.
I have found many old and new videos with this song. In many of the videos you can see Tommy Shaw with his F5 mandolin.
And I found one very special video – see the last video – Tommy Shaw plays Boat on River on My Mandolin!
Enjoy Styx with Boat on the River!

If you think Tommy Shaw’s mandolin playing is great in this song then you need to check out “Dance with Me” from the Shaw/Blades (Jack Blades + Tommy Shaw duo) album Influence and may be seen on http://www.myspace.com/shawbladesinfluence
