Best Songs Featuring a Piano


The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

When you hear it, you immediately start swaying along and singing... Best ever. Those immortal words: "Mama just killed a man"

Yeah, of course. This should be number 1. Hail queen, and freddie mercury for this wonderful song

Should have been number one

Freddie was a very talented songwriter and piano player, not just a singer!

3 Imagine - John Lennon

The piano in this song makes all that John is singing about powerful. If he were to speak these statements, it wouldn't be considered art, but the piano makes all the "imagines" possible

John Lennon's visionary song - MatrixGuy

Best piano ballad. It is lovely

good song

4 Let It Be - The Beatles

Paul McCartney's moving song - MatrixGuy

5 Clocks - Coldplay

The intro riff is simply wonderful

I've learned it, it's fun and it's original. Would Recommend learning

Really good song

the best

6 Love The Way You Lie - Skylar Grey
7 Someone Like You - Adele

We have waited a song "Something Like This" - MatrixGuy

This is an awesome song and should be at the top of the list.

It should be the first

8 Piano Man - Billy Joel

Shouldn't this be like top 10 in my view it should be... - attarj

I love this piece of music, it is truly amazing and I got the chance to play this unbelievable music, it should defiantly be in the top 10!

One of the best! Needs to be in top 10

Good song and it has the word piano in the title so why not? - Userguy44

9 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Should be number 1. Axl wrote this song by himself and it was originally all on piano. Even the solo that Slash played. It took Axl more years to write this master piece! - DunnaNunnaBatman

This song is so good! - Userguy44

It's my favourite Guns N' Roses song and I can play it.


10 Into the Light - In This Moment

The Newcomers

? A Man Needs a Maid - Neil Young

Neil Young plays the piano on this one. The studio version has strings from the London Symphony Orchestra, but I personally recommend the version recorded live at the BBC in 1971; it's just Neil by himself. - Gg2000

? Want You to Feel Good Too - NRBQ

This song features an awesome piano solo. I think Terry Adams is an underrated keyboardist. - Gg2000

The Contenders

11 My Heart Is Broken - Evanescence
12 Great Balls of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis

very big!

13 Fur Elise - Ludwig Van Beethoven

I am sick that this is the first classical piece on the list. I think most voters are beginner pianists who only think this piece is cool because they can play it. Can't you really think of a better classical piece on piano? Or is this the only one you know? I usually don't throw comments like this, but the inclusion of Fur Elise on the best lists irritates me more than Gangnam Style getting billions of YouTube views.

If we want to make classical music more popular, idolizing this song is not the best choice.

More, as far as I can see, this list is not for classical pieces on piano. It says FEATURING. - Alkadikce

14 A Day in the Life - The Beatles


15 Hurt - Christina Aguilera
16 Perfect Day - Lou Reed
17 The Scientist - Coldplay

This is the real ballad song of all time! - FinnBlom

As much as I love clocks, imagine, bohemian raphsody, and pyramid song, I love this true ballad because it is so beautiful.

This song is the best song ever
Best of coldplay

18 Hymn for the Missing - Red
19 Morphine Child - Savatage
20 Chance - Savatage
21 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
22 Lost In Paradise - Evanescence
23 Apologize - OneRepublic

Superb song about relationships gone wrong and the necessity of moving on, a massive international hit - MatrixGuy

24 Hurricane - Thirty Seconds to Mars
25 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

Favourite song for a lot of people.

Freddie played the piano like a boss here. - Userguy44

26 Moonlight Sonata - Ludwig Van Beethoven
27 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

You won't hear any piano sound(what it calls,piano riff I guess) individually but you could hear it with backing acoustic guitar riffs,and its very heavy riffs - zxm

28 Coming Curse - Iced Earth
29 Lighters - Bad Meets Evil
30 Empire of the Clouds - Iron Maiden
31 Forgiven - Skillet

Beautiful! I didn't expect to see Skillet here - but they deserve it!

How can this be placed so low?

33 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

I heard that the intro live at Central Park was improvised. May Richard Tee rest in peace.
