Harpsichord

A harpsichord is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. It produces sound by plucking a string when each key is pressed. The harpsichord was widely used in baroque music. It became less popular following the invention of the piano, but its distinctive sound is still used in contemporary music. Edit this Artist photo: Patrick Wolf

    The most incontrovertible omission in this list of Harpsichord music is the classic "Golden Brown" -The Stranglers. Which uses a waltzing harpsichord alternating between 6/8 and 7/8. One of my all time favourite songs, because it has good lyrics and meaning in addition it sounds so unusual yet pleasant to the ear.
