Top Ten Organ Rock Songs

The Top Ten

1 Child in Time - Deep Purple
2 The House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
3 Light My Fire - The Doors
4 A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum
5 Highway Star - Deep Purple
6 Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
7 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

David Coverdale had awesome voice. Ritchie Blackmore also played a very good solo. But Jon Lord's backing organ made the song very emotional. - zxm

8 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly
9 July Morning - Uriah Heep

A very strong organ solo played in the back. Overlooked by guitar solo. - zxm

10 Your Time is Gonna Come - Led Zeppelin

The Contenders

11 Hush - Deep Purple
12 96 Tears -? and the Mysterians
13 Roundabout - Yes
14 Walk of Life - Dire Straits

I don't know much about keyboards, but this song is a mix of synthesizer and organ. A patch or something like this. - zxm

15 Gimme Some Lovin' - The Spencer Davis Group
16 Fix You - Coldplay
17 Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

Especially for the album version. The longer one. Has an extended organ solo. - zxm

18 Chest Fever - The Band

Garth Hudson's playing on this track is tremendous. He gets to show off his skills without getting in the way of the band, and his organ tone is very agressive. This song deserves to be in the top 5 at the very least.

19 Psychedelic Moon - The Deep
20 Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
21 Easy Livin' - Uriah Heep
22 Lazy - Deep Purple

In my opinion, Lazy is a better representation of Jon Lord's organ skill than Child in Time. The intro is tremendous. - Gg2000

23 Hold Your Head Up - Argent
24 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
25 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
