Not a particular song, but my favorite piano driven rock album is probably Elton John's 11/17/70.

Elton John - Elton John (the entire album - as previously mentioned )
Renaissance - Ashes are Burning (the entire album)
Carol King - Tapestry - same
Joni Mitchell - Blue - Same
Pat Metheny/Lyle Mays - As Fall Wichita, So falls Wichita Falls (same - this album is a hybrid of jazz, rock and classical to my ears)

Recently, I have learned

Nights in White Satin, more fun to play than expected
Last Date - the Classic country song with 'roll' technique
And
Aqualung - much more challenging than first expected

"Rockin Pnuemonia And A Boogie Woogie Flu" By Johnny Rivers

I have played it every gig for the last few years and it always goes over great. Even solo, but its best with drums, bass & piano.


A long long time ago, I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile....

That JR version is great! Let's also give a shoutout to originator Huey "Piano" Smith.

Hi

I'd certainly go along with all the choices above, that I know, and add:

Nicky Hopkins work on the Stones "Let it Bleed" album.
Johnny Johnson's great work on numerous Chuck Berry classics.
Leon Russell on "Shoot out at the plantation", plus many others.
Jerry Lee Lewis - err lots!

Cheers
