An instrumental is, in contrast to a song, a musical composition or recording without lyrics or any other sort of vocal music; all of the music is produced by musical instruments. Specifically, this term is used when referring to popular music; some musical genres make little use of the human voice, such as jazz, electronic music, and large amounts of European classical music (although in electronic music the voice can be sampled just like anything else). In commercial music, some tracks or songs on a compact disc include instrumental tracks. These tracks are often exact copies of the corresponding song, but do not have vocals.

Instrumental tracks that have reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 include

“Theme from A Summer Place” - Percy Faith (1960)
“Telstar” - Tornados (1962)
“L’Amour Est Bleu (Love Is Blue)” - Paul Mauriat (1968)
“Grazing in the Grass” - Hugh Masekela (1968)
“Frankenstein” - Edgar Winter Group (1973)
“Love’s Theme” - Love Unlimited Orchestra (1974)
“The Hustle” - Van McCoy (1975)
“Theme from ‘S.W.A.T.’” - Rhythm Heritage (1976)
“Rise” - Herb Alpert (1979)
“Chariots of Fire” - Vangelis (1982)
“Miami Vice Theme” - Jan Hammer (1985)
“Sandstorm” - Darude (2000)
