New wave songs with a xylophone

Postby scramjet » Thu May 12, 2005 12:46 am

I can think of:

Oingo Boingo - Gray Matter
Violent Femmes - Gone Daddy Gone
Duran Duran - Last Chance on the Stairway

Questionable (probably keyboards/synths)

Tears for Fears - Change
Squeeze - Last Time Forever

Well these sound like xylophones but I'm sure they were keyboards. Off the top of my head:

Electricity - OMD
Cruel Summer - Bananarama
Down Under - Men At Work
Sign Of The Times - The Belle Stars
Lifeline - Spandau Ballet
Love My Way - Psychedeli
