The Contenders

11 Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues
12 Watcher of the Skies - Genesis

The keyboard intro is all Mellotron; it's one of those intros where I get immediately transfixed by the tonality and the depth of the sound. - Gg2000

13 Wonderwall - Oasis

That cello you hear during the song is actually Bonehead (the rhythm guitarist) playing a Mellotron. Oasis also used one on Don't Look Back in Anger, Cast No Shadow, and Magic Pie. - Gg2000

14 Phenomenal Cat - The Kinks

From "The Village Green Preservation Society". The flute parts throughout the song come from a Mellotron. - Gg2000

15 We Love You - The Rolling Stones

Brian Jones played the rhythmic horn parts on a Mellotron. George Chkiantz, the studio engineer, said that he was impressed by Brian's ability to get a tight performance because of the fact that a Mellotron has a slight delay between pressing the key and hearing the sound. - Gg2000

16 Tuesday's Gone - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Producer Al Kooper added Mellotron strings to the song. He did the same thing for Free Bird, but the strings on Free Bird are out of tune. - Gg2000

17 And You and I - Yes

I had completely forgotten about this song. I was thinking about it and realized that it does have a Mellotron on it. Strings, to be more specific. - Gg2000

18 Turn the Page - Bob Seger

Bob Seger's keyboardist played a Mellotron on it, live. Just touring with a Mellotron takes a lot of gumption. - Gg2000

19 Dream On - Aerosmith

The strings that you hear in the background are played on a Mellotron. - Gg2000

20 Exit Music (For a Film) - Radiohead

The choir sounds in the background are from a Mellotron. It also sounds like they used it on The Tourist (please don't quote me on that, though). - Gg2000

21 Starless - King Crimson
