    Good grief. I knew I was missing the 4th member of the top 4 in no particular order. Wow.

    Perfect post!

    I wouldnt say these are top 10, but I love the organ as the songs progress:

    "Time Of the Season" - Zombies



    "Magic Carpet Ride" - Steppenwolf

    That is a good song. The organ grows as the song progresses kind of like Zombies "Time Of the Season."
