Top 10 Songs with the Best Use of a Synthesizer
The Top Ten
There really is no comparison. While many songs on this list definitely belong here, Baba O'Riley absolutely deserves the number one spot.
When I first heard the song I thought it was electric piano. Never thought it was a synthesizer.
Most original use for the synthesizer. Great song
Best use! Set the bar! Townsend used Synthesizers as an itegral part of the song strucuture as opposed to just some whizzy, fizzy gimmick. I mean those can be neat too... Best Townsend is the bomb!
One of the most iconic openings to a song. One second in and pure adrenaline rushes through your body.
No one said you need to write something super complex to get a good riff. I'd say this one has it all. It's catchy, really memorable, many people know this song because of the synthesizer! My all time favourite.
It is electric, memorable... has different meanings depending on the listeners' mood... just dynamic, upbeat, exciting, wonderful music, wonderful singing... I'd put it in maybe my personal all time top 25.
The synth in this song is clearly defined and the song features fantabulous vocals. Definitely the best synth song to be produced.
One of the more iconic songs, led simply by the synthesizer melody which makes it instantly recognizable.
Oh I love this song I'm addicted to the lyrics know em by heart Europe are defensively a one hit wonder
One heck of a song that can be led just with the synth. It has a great solo in the middle of the song with synth.
Rush are just the best band ever and yet so underrated, no band has lasted so long in music with the same members and sounded so consistently good, even when changing styles to stay contemprary with the ever-changing world of music they mannage to bang out tune after tune
c'mon! you can't get stoned and not love that!
Simply the most pivotal album music has ever heard. This song has raised the bar for synth work forever and will be marked as a milestone for years to come.
Totally agree, this is techno!
So glad to see this one in the top 10! The entire track is synthesizer except for the beats and the bridges which use minimal piano. A true masterpiece!
This one absolutely deserves top ten. The main synthesizer tune is just so great to listen to.
Best synthé song ever!
Muse is awesome. What else can be said? Matthew Bellamy has the voice of a god. This list is lucky to have such a good song on it. Why wouldn't someone vote for this song? You fools. You pressed the wrong button. Pay more attention!
The combination between the synth and rock guitar is awesomeness
best artist ever. best album ever. no contest - best ending to an album ever: any colour you like, brain damage, eclipse.
Fail. This song doesn't have a synthesizer on it.
Awesome feel to it...it sounds like someone running up a hill
Excellent work, one of his best.
I'll NEVER tire of this. It carries you along with it. The moody bassline and the noise sweeps.
The father of the moderm electronic
Pure 80's! Thats All That Needs To Be Said!
I love this song! Reminds me of High School. Best synth use ever!
Best synt rif ever
Take my breath away! 111
Not in comparison to BABA O riley. But a deserver of top 10 spot
The bass line is great.
An Industrial synth intro, marks the end of the daily shift and the beginning of the suburban dystopia.
The badass intro.
Love the Oberheim in this track!
How anyone could leave this song out of the top ten is beyond me.
Talking about synthi means talking about this little masterpiece, why isn't it mentioned here yet?
Because this list is such crap overall. so many songs that never should have appeared here, ever. this song is a classic - top 10 definitely.
The intro with a synthesizer. But the chorus part was the best part.
Classic synth...nothing programmed...played by hand!
Gary Wright was master of the synthesizer in the '70s and he's not even included as a contender? For shame!
I like at the end when its all synthesizer and the animal making noises etc it's a good song!
That's all the made up the band - synthesizers!
Needs to be higher
have you heard this masterpiece!
The archetypal electro-NW song of ~1980. Perfect.
nice piano, synthesizer effects
very underrated. don't ever listen to guns n roses and axl rose's haters that this is crap
Only in the intro but who cares? Awesome synths
The first album I actually bought for the synthesizer.
Um... So what ever hi I am late for work
I love is the mous
