15 of the Best Piano Songs In Modern Pop History

Our roundup of the 15 best piano songs in pop recognizes that while guitars and drums often get all the glory in pop music, it’s the power of a well-written piano riff that can truly make a song great.

Singles like Coldplay‘s ‘Clocks,’ Alicia Keys‘ ‘Fallin” and Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’ are known for their piano work —but they certainly aren’t the only ones. Artists like John Legend, Lady Gaga, Adele and Ben Folds have also given the baby grands of the world a place to call home.

Have a listen to what we think are some of the best piano songs in pop music, and we think you’ll agree that this classical instrument is sometimes best used on a modern concert stage instead.
