Default Good harmonica songs?

I'm driving about 35 hours a week and bought a harmonica to learn to play in the car. Not looking to become one of the Harmonicats (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjhDpiu4ais) or to play blues.

Do you know any songs with good harmonica parts, I'm thinking about songs like Piano Man or Heart of Gold.

Love me do: the Beatles
Train in Vain: the Clash
Daydream: Lovin Spoonful
My Babe: Little Walter
Briefcase full of Blues (whole album): Blues Brothers

Of course these songs are all in different keys, so bring a whole case full of harmonicas if you intend to play along

edit: Oops, missed the no blues part. try it anyway, you'll like it!

Good luck on your musical growth. Here the mouth harp would get you healthy fines for distracted driving. Not the same where you live?

Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper did an absolutely hilarious version of In A Gadda Da Vita on harmonica and bongo drums.

Harmonica seems to be okay. Trombone would definitely be a problem.

I could threaten to play the harmonica for the policeman, that would probably get me charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
