I'm still in catch-up mode, having taken off most of May and now June from blogging, due to pacing for my fibromyalgia. 

And now, back to our regularly-scheduled programming.

This year I'll be taking a once-a-month look at specific instruments and showcasing five songs or tunes which place that instrument front and center.

This year's feature is called Spotlight On...

...and for our sixth installment, I'm venturing out from the primal body instruments of hand-clapping, whistling and vocal harmonies to explore percussion. Following April's look at drums, and May's look at the vibraphone or vibes, here are five songs which shine a spotlight on the piano.

1 - Jealous Guy - John Lennon - 1971

2 - Mad World (Donnie Darko soundtrack) - Gary Jules - 2001 for the soundtrack, 2003 for radio release

3 - Levon - Elton John - 1971

4 - New York State of Mind - Billy Joel - 1976

5 - Nothing From Nothing - Billy Preston - 1974
