Pick up to two favorites; suggest a favorite song featuring harpsichord not on the list.

Stranglers, Golden Brown. They deserve to win because they made the harpsichord work in 1981. There was harpsichords on every corner in 1967, it was too easy.

Thanks. I was trying in vain to think of an example post '70.

I should have included this one. Possibly my favorite Monkees tune.

This is the only cut from the album I could find, but the harpsichord player is Leon Russell.

Not thought of as a rock record, but tell me that Stan Freeman doesn't rock on the harpsichord!
Bonus: Ross "David Seville" Bagdasarian, who co-wrote the song with his cousin, William Saroyan.

I went for Different Drum and For Your Love.

And I’ll offer up this “harpsichord improvisation” by Meade Lux Lewis. I really love this.

Suprised no one’s mentioned Bowie’s version of ‘It Aint Easy’ ... with Rick Wakeman on harpsicord. I know it’s a largely disliked but I for one love it!
