For next week we’re doing theme suggested by my friend Joe (everyone is welcome to suggest songs and themes). He wanted a Top Five Songs featuring the Organ. It’s not an odd request once you consider the amount of songs the organ and electric organ appear in. In case you’re not sure what an organ sounds like listen to this. So here is Joe’s Top Five what are yours.

5. Chips Ahoy, The Holdsteady

4. Sukie in the Graveyard, Belle and Sebastian

3. High Party, Ted Leo

2. Pump it Up, Elvis Costello

1. New Era, The Specials

  4. 5. (Walter) Wendy Carlos – Corale Prelude–Wachet Auf (first to popularize the Moog synths and a pretty influential pioneer)
    4. Daniel Miller as The Normal – Warm Leatherette (the amazing use of synths as electronic music finds its way to post punk!)
    3. Lee “Scratch” Perry – People Funny Boy (the first use of the “organ shuffle” as rocksteady made its monumental transition to reggae!)
    2. Taj Mahal – Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes (he plays harmonica, which is the “mouth organ”.)
    1. Arcade Fire – Intervention (indie meets traditional!)

  5. Riders on the storm, by that great organ band, The Doors
    And for a different sort of organ – no sniggering down the back – Like a rolling stone, Bob Dylan

    Rock Lobster – The B52s
    Anything that features a Farfisa.

  10. Oh im looking for a song plaed with an organ. ANd I was so happy when I found this page but alas it wasnt among these many suggestions.

    I used to listen to this one when I was younger. Not after 2005. It was a song that was talked (not sung) and had a ominous organ sound in the background. He talked about graves and death and so on… Sadly I cant remember anything more.
