Best Use of a Synthesizer in a Song


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Wont Get Fooled Again - The Who

Not in comparison to BABA O riley. But a deserver of top 10 spot

22 We Belong - Pat Benatar
23 Are 'Friends' Electric? - Tubeway Army & Gary Numan
24 Babylon Zoo - Spaceman

How anyone could leave this song out of the top ten is beyond me. - Tasslehoff

25 Lucky Man - Emerson, Lake & Palmer
26 Cheri Cheri Lady - Modern Talking
27 Subdivisions - Rush

The badass intro. - zxm

Love the Oberheim in this track!

28 Miracles Out of Nowhere - Kansas

Classic synth...nothing programmed...played by hand!

29 Smalltown Boy - Bronski Beat

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.

30 Rio - Duran Duran
31 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

The intro with a synthesizer. But the chorus part was the best part. - zxm

32 Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode
33 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

Needs to be higher

34 D'erlanger - Gekkou

nice piano, synthesizer effects - ronluna

35 Chinese Democracy - Guns N' Roses

very underrated. don't ever listen to guns n roses and axl rose's haters that this is crap - ronluna

36 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

have you heard this masterpiece! - rock2metal

37 Ooh to Be Ah - Kajagoogoo
38 Burn It Down - Linkin Park
39 Dream Weaver - Gary Wright

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!

40 West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys

Um... So what ever hi I am late for work
