Best Piano Rock SongsPetSounds As a classically-trained pianist, there is nothing I enjoy more than hearing a rock 'n' roll song featuring a piano. I've limited my original list to one song per pianist; otherwise, Billy Joel would have had at least five.
The Top Ten
My favorite queen song and it's #1 on best songs list - Ajkloth
Who else would take the number one spot but Billy Joel? And especially this song. It begins as a gentle ballad, then progresses into a Dixieland section which sets the stage for the upbeat story of Brenda and Eddie, and seamlessly transitions back into the ballad section of the beginning. - PetSounds
If this isn't the most definitive piano rock song, I don't know what is.
No list of this type would be complete without Elton John. Almost any of his songs could fit here, but this is my favourite. - PetSounds
I love everything about this song. It would be a strong candidate for number 1 if I did a list of most underrated/overlooked songs that once were popular. - Billyv
I'm still amazed I didn't include this when I made this list a year ago. It's one of my favourite songs. - PetSounds
Say what you will, the piano in this song is great. One of my favorite piano intros ever.
It's a shame the band broke up after 1 album. They sounded great!
I love the way Don Henley's understated piano sets the stage for the guitar solo. Wonderful song, and the Eagles' finest, in my opinion. - PetSounds
Closer to folk than rock, but it's too good not to be here. - PetSounds
In The End is that should be number 1 with My Immortal.
GO Linkin Park! GO EVANESCENCE!
