Are there any songs where you appreciate the keyboard playing? Feel free to share!

 

Here’s a track from my library where I think that the keyboard solo sounds great, probably because of its unique tone:

Another song that comes to mind is this track by The Doors, where I think that the keyboard solo sounds great as well:

Cheers!

Talking about progressive rock you can always look for Jordan Rudess work with Dream Theater.

Thanks for sharing, @IIama and @Jpgchief; I like the keyboard playing on these songs as well!

 

Here are another couple tracks from my library where I enjoy listening to the keyboards (Richard Wright from Pink Floyd and Keith Godchaux from the Grateful Dead):

And here's a track with a xylophone solo by Roy Ayers that I think sounds quite nice:

Hi folks, 

 

I feel the urge to join the thread since I'm a big fan of 80s new wave and synth pop for some time now. And this is where a lot of keyboarding used to happen back in the day.  

 

If I was to post the first coming to my mind I'd most probably share a Depeche Mode song. Their whole discography is full of great keyboard compositions, and especially the earlier albums. Also - Camouflage, Client and Marsheaux. Let me show you some of my best picks in this genre:

 

spotify:track:2hUINMzSnrhcqpdcWiY0oa:small 

 

Not to forget that Client was formed by Depeche Mode member Andy Fletcher, which can somehow be felt in the way they sound.

 

spotify:track:09STsAbKDB80hHwzT3Q3i8:small 

 

And last but not least, in 2015 Marsheaux released A Broken Frame - one of the best Depeche Mode-covering albums. 

 

spotify:track:0HvkVjt2AE9nqMOZdyGKxj:small 

 

Hope you'll like my selection!

Thanks for sharing, @Ivan!

 

Here’s another track for which I really enjoy listening to the sounds of the keyboards (played by Ryu Kurosawa, who plays sitar as well on other Kikagaku Moyo songs):

Hello! I would like to share with you my band's single "Prism". Track is written in indie pop/ indie rock genre, it has melancholic vibes, it is about unrequited love and main melodic instruments are piano and acoustic guitar, featuring string orchestra, drums and bass guitar later in the song with great piano solo at the end. Have a nice listen and a good day!

Ant St. - Prism
