Actually, I just replaced Misty with No Quarter. Cannot believe I forgot that one, being as it's one of my top 5 Zep songs. The organ creates such a chilling atmosphere in that intro...

Yeah I could have put in Living For The City as well, but Superstition is the most "iconic" (God I've got to stop using that word, I'm starting to sound like Echoes... :lol: )

Light My Fire!

And the Keyboards Forum would be really interesting if it were really active... Too bad, because I think it's the most under-explored of all standard rock instruments.

If by "keyboard riff" you mean the synthesized arpeggios that persist throughout Baba O'Riley, then that's my pick by a fucking mile. I'd listen to that shit for hours, man.
