The Top Ten
So many Billy Joel songs could have made this list. Technically, "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant" is not as difficult as "Prelude/Angry Young Man" or "Stiletto", but the solo propels the song through a transition perfectly. - PetSounds
Billy Joel rocks on piano. - Pony
An incredible solo for an incredible song...!
Once again, this isn't technically difficult, but it's perfect for the song. The Wurlitzer's sound is unique, and makes me think of Supertramp instantly. - PetSounds
Just as amazing as the vocals too! - MontyPython
I debated about including this, since it's more of a riff than a solo. Make sure you find the full version of the song--the piano intro was snipped on the single edit. - PetSounds
Most people simply think of the distorted guitar and forget the fantastic, wild solo that guest musician Billy Preston plays. - PetSounds
If you listen carefully during the outro, you'll notice that Elton added a snippet of another song by The Who, "I Can't Explain". - PetSounds
It's from the soundtrack (by Michael Nyman) of 1993 Academy Award-winning film The Piano (starring Holly Hunter and Harvey Keitel).
Don't know if this is really relevant here, since it may not be so popular. However, the movie and the music had such an impact on me, that when I read the title of your list, this is the first thing that came to my mind. - Lotuscandy
