2 thoughts on “Five Songs Inspired to Use Harpsichord by a Song That Didn’t Use Harpsichord

  1. Lets not forget the overused sitar in sixties pop music. But there was one song that truly “jumped the shark” by inserting both a harpsichord and sitar into a bossa nova song. That would be Brasil 66’s Constant Rain (aka, Chove Chuva) which had sitar & harpsichord playing the intro tag in unison. Too bad as the song is an otherwise terrific bossa with fine vocals, percussion and piano. It’s an all time favorite of mine.
    A Brazilian piano trio called “3 Na Bossa” has an excellent modern cover of Chove Chuva.
