Electric pianos, like the , or the , are not synths or digital keyboards. They produce sound like an acoustic piano would, with a hammer, however instead of striking a string, the hammer strikes a tuned piece of metal. That noise is then gotten and sent to an amp in a comparable way as an electric guitar.

Thanks to Devon Yesberger for assisting me recognize the original e. piano utilized on some of these tracks.

  1. Absolutely nailed it, once again!
    After your and Paul’s performances, I really can’t wait for Adam Neely’s take on the 55 (or even 80?) greatest bass intros of all time.

  2. Supertramp’s “The Logical Song” would be my first suggestion – absolute classic. A bit more obscure would be “The Holy Drinker” by Steven Wilson, which I think is also a Wurlitzer.
    PS: “How Deep Is Your Love?” – Bee Gees

  3. I’ve been impressed by David in the past, but this takes the cake. Such a great performance and inspiring to re-listen to all these songs. Thanks for all the work you put into this!

  4. Wow! ‘Sheep’ is my first Pink Floyd memory, and I think the reason is its tendency to feel constantly wandering, specially those tiny chords at the intro, with no full resolution in sight…you need to enjoy the rest of the song ’til Gilmour’s final phenomenal progression to find out where was it all going! PF’s rocking at its finest. Great selection, David.

  5. You know – as a fellow YouTuber, I’m watching for cuts (not seeing cuts), watching your eyes to see if you’re reading music (you’re not) and I’m floored. Great idea for a video and beautiful playing. What a celebration of the electric piano!! Congrats David❤

    1. @Gary Citro could have recorded midi and then edited the sound switching post recording. Either way, very impressive stuff

  6. I’m admittedly not great at identifying electric piano as opposed to synthesizers or other keyboards, so I can’t identify any standout tracks missing, but I’d love to see your take on this for other kinds of keyboard-based instruments! Perhaps the Hammond organ or the mellotron could be ripe for medleys, and maybe one like this for synthesizer intros.

  7. It’s a great list!
    The only thing that’s missing for me is Portishead’s Roads (1994). Just have checked it now and it’s certainly an e-piano sound, also quite a unique recognisable vibe to it, definitely deserves a spot here

  8. In the last year, this has become my favourite channel on YouTube! Well done David! Great performance.

  9. so one of the first songs that came like immediatly to mind was riders on the storm and you played it magnificiently !
    some other songs that could make the list :
    logical song and dreamer by supertramp although i think bloody well right which you played is my favorite by them
    animals by muse a pretty coool one
    chris de burgh’s spaceman came travellings is also a great one on the rhodes and quite underrated
    i guess lots of jazz fusion could makes the list but i don’t know it enough

    also to mention that there are electric piano that came afterwards and heavily used in the 80s that are not the ones you mentionned

    genesis used a bunch of these through the different eras and i especially love the yamaha electric grand piano CP-70
    also used by vangelis in songs like rêve and memories green
    tony banks used it extensevily on his first solo record and on the album Duke, but also on classics like that’s all

  10. Thank you for this medley I really enjoyed. ❤
    Notable mention: Bruno Mars – Versace on the floor

  11. Can’t like this enough ❤🎹 ugh all of it, so good. Great songs, timeless sound

  12. For a great electric piano album, check out Cookbook by John Andrews & The Yawns from 2021. It was one of my favourite albums last year. Super laid back and groovy. Song for The Gonz is like a lost Vince Guaraldi/Peanuts song.

  13. Even if the electric piano was conceived as a more portable, giggable alternative to the piano, I think the mood and vibe it brings is entirely different to the piano

  14. I LOVE E piano. When I get around to finally learning, it’s going to be the first thing I look for when I finally purchase my own instrument.

  15. That was really good. I would have put “Little Jeannie”, by Elton John. I thought for sure it was going to be in there…strong electric piano opening.

  16. Great Medley David. I might have missed it. Was hoping to hear Everything In It’s Right Place.

  17. I would have hit the ceiling had you included “Razor Cut” by the Toasters. David, your videos could serve as archetypes of excellent content creation. I enjoyed the format of this video, and would welcome more medleys that curate a gallery of artists to follow up on.
