Top 10 Songs Featuring a Mellotron
The Top Ten
The best space rock song. - BrianScott01
The keyboard intro is all Mellotron; when I heard it, I was immediately transfixed by the tonality and the depth of the sound. - Gg2000
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
The choir sounds in the background are from a Mellotron. It also sounds like Jonny Greenwood used it on The Tourist (please don't quote me on that, though).
Edit: Turns out, it was indeed used on The Tourist. - Gg2000
This song features at least a couple tracks of Mellotron (strings and flutes) with some nice pitch-bend work courtesy of Jay Bennett. The Mellotron also appears on "Can't Stand It", "Nothing'severgonnastandinmyway (Again)", and "ELT". - Gg2000
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
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, Falling Down, The Hindu Times, Go Let It Out, and Magic Pie. - Gg2000
From "The Village Green Preservation Society". The flute parts throughout the song come from a Mellotron.
Edit: So does the electric guitar.
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
Bob Seger's keyboardist played a Mellotron on it, live. Just touring with a Mellotron takes a lot of gumption. - Gg2000
The strings that you hear in the background are played on a Mellotron. - Gg2000
