This is an offshoot of the "favorite guitarist" thread. Pretty self explanatory. My favorite solos are:
David Gilmour (Floyd) - "Your Possible Pasts"
Mantas (Venom) - "Buried Alive"
Michael Denner / Andy LaRoque (King Diamond) - "A Mansion In Darkness"
Zakk Wylde (Ozzy) - "No More Tears"
Scott Gorham / Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy) - "Bad Reputation"
Dave Murray / Adrian Smith - "Sea Of Madness" or "Alexander The Great"
Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) - "Embers Fire"
But my all time favorite solo has to be, oddly enough, the guitar solo in Tears For Fears "Shout" - it's so simple, but it fits the song perfectly.

Stanley Jordan's "Moon River" -- the best example IMO of his amazing ability to play melody and harmony at the same time on a single guitar.  It's constructed like a mini-symphony.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH
