Best electric piano/Rhodes songs?

Postby Jake » Mon Apr 20, 2009 4:16 pm

I'm gonna throw out "You're by Best Friend" by Queen. You just can't beat the tone of that.

Also, Ray Charles - "What I'd Say." This one pretty much started the whole thing. It just sound so cool.

What else you got?

What about that solo in "Do You Feel Like We Do?" The one on the long version where Frampton goes "Bob Mayo on the keyboards...Bob Mayo!"
Then he whips out that badass talkbox.
I've got dibs on the bandname Talkbox too. It's mine.

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but the harmony between steel and electric piano on "See the Sky About to Rain" is one of my favorite sounds from Old Neil records.

That's what I'm talkin' about... Yeah!

I feel a "21 best" coming on.

post from a real cool blog on the Fender Rhodes.

how about
"Your Gold Teeth" by Steely Dan. Fagen lays down a great angular solo. Plus, he hits that weird note right after the 'Kathy Berbarian' line. Dig it.

Awesome. That's great.

And "Riders On The Storm" totally has to be included on the list, despite the amount of shit we give the Doors around here.
