Fun Stones songs to play on piano
Posted by: peoplewitheyes ()

I'm an average-level pianist, but don't normally have access to a piano. This week I am staying at a place with a beautiful electric piano. I've been having so much fun, blasting the rust off, and loving playing Memory Motel and Fool to Cry.

What other Stones tracks do you love to play on piano?

As a side question, what Stones tracks were written on piano? We Love You? Worried About You?

I am not a piano player but Flight 505 and Let's Spend the Night Together sound like worthy 'fun' songs to play.

Flight 505 is good one.
She's a rainbow, too.

I'm now practicing Key To The Highway(Stu version) on piano. It's very fun.

I used to play Walking The Dog on the piano. It's not originally a piano song, of course, but it's easy to translate. The "riff" is kinda easy, the rhythm with the left hand is easy and fun, and it's a 12-bar-ish kinda song so easy to figure out. And it will sound good.

Another one, more of a challenge, is Melody. It's more difficult, especially the singing part of course.

For my 60th, the hotel we were staying at, played satisfaction for me.

There's a funny Mick interview somewhere where he was trying to run through it before dueting with Bonnie Raitt, and he recalls he wrote it on piano so it "must be in C"...guess he never got around to learning the circle of fifths!

I am a lousy pianist, but I have always liked to play "Hide Your Love" and "Memory Motel". There are others for sure, but those come to my mind first.

Jagger is not the best pianist either, but one constant in his piano songs is his steady left hand. You can always tell his piano by a rock steady left-hand part.

That 'We Love You" riff must have come out of an excercise.
Or more likely when a riff is hammering in your head, when you all coked up and cant sleep forever.
