    Listening to Zeppelin's "Fool in the Rain," I started wondering about songs that use a ref's whistle in them. The only other one I could think of was GnR's "Paradise City."

    So, SJ Music Gurus, are there others? And what are they?

    G'n'R "Patience" and Otis Redding's "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" jump to mind.

    Never mind, Just noticed you were looking for a ref's whistle. I've got nothing,
