Best Piano Rock SongsPetSounds As a classically-trained pianist, there is nothing I enjoy more than hearing a rock 'n' roll song featuring a piano. I've limited my original list to one song per pianist; otherwise, Billy Joel would have had at least five.
The Top TenXW
Who else would take the number one spot but Billy Joel? And especially this song. It begins as a gentle ballad, then progresses into a Dixieland section which sets the stage for the upbeat story of Brenda and Eddie, and seamlessly transitions back into the ballad section of the beginning. - PetSounds
If this isn't the most definitive piano rock song, I don't know what is.
My favorite queen song and it's #1 on best songs list - Ajkloth
No list of this type would be complete without Elton John. Almost any of his songs could fit here, but this is my favourite. - PetSounds
I love the way Don Henley's understated piano sets the stage for the guitar solo. Wonderful song, and the Eagles' finest, in my opinion. - PetSounds
I love everything about this song. It would be a strong candidate for number 1 if I did a list of most underrated/overlooked songs that once were popular. - Billyv
I'm still amazed I didn't include this when I made this list a year ago. It's one of my favourite songs. - PetSounds
Say what you will, the piano in this song is great. One of my favorite piano intros ever.
Closer to folk than rock, but it's too good not to be here. - PetSounds
In The End is that should be number 1 with My Immortal.
