Simon_and_Garfunkel,_Bridge_over_Troubled_Water_(1970)#12– Simon & Garfunkel – “Cecilia” – (1970)

Bridge Over Troubled Water is a legendary album, so to be the chosen song off of that album is pretty big. This top five hit actually features a relatively strange instrument: a piano bench that Paul Simon’s brother was banging on during a party. They recorded it and then played it back and recorded the banging over the recording making a cool sound and, once in the studio, Simon looped a section of it for the backing sound in this song.
