I know this is basically subjective, but I think Light My Fire should always reign as THE unchallenged number one.

I don't think its really subjective. It's almost a law of nature by now.

There's a difference between keyboard riffs and piano riffs Bruce.

Are you saying that a piano does not count as a keyboard?

I think you're wrong, and that's why these songs are on the list:

12.Money (That's What I Want)- Barrett Strong
19.Mess Around- Ray Charles
31.Mary Ann- Ray Charles

Say what you will, but it's influential and recognizable.

2. A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum
3. Don't Stop Believing - Journey
4. Light My Fire - The Doors
5. Green Onions - Booker T. & the MGs

8. Baba O'Reilly - The Who
9. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
10. Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
11. Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
12. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd


Don't Stop Believing > Light My Fire? Are you from Mars or something?

(I Just) Died in Your Arms - Cutting Crew should be here. And "Layla" by Derek and the Ds should be here too.

Yeah there's no way Light My Fire should ever drop from #1. It is the quintessential organ riff.
The only song I could see taking it's place would be "What'd I Say", which I cant believe beaver didnt include in his top 12...

It is, but Superstition is both obscenely difficult to play well and arguably the most well-known keyboard riff in the world.

That's reasonable but there's is no way that simple riff in DSB beats the legendary LMF riff.

Fair enough. Either way I tend to use popularity as a huge criterion for riffs in general because the best riffs tend to be immediately recognizable and in the public conscience. It's also one of a multitude of reasons I advocated "Good Times" by Chic as the Greatest Rock Bassline.
