Trampled Underfoot is a Clavinet, Baba O'Riley is a EMS VCS3 synthesizer, and I think Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is a sitar.

I don't think Siberian Khatru has any harpsichord in it.
The six wives of Henry VIII has some harpsichord parts in it, though I can't remember in which "wife".

According to Wiki:

Popular music

Examples of the harpsichord's use in popular music include The Left Banke's "Walk Away Renee", The Stranglers' "Golden Brown", Van Morrison's "Everyone," Yes' "Siberian Khatru," Elton John's "I Need You to Turn To", The Rolling Stones' "Yesterday's Papers."[8], R.E.M.'s "Half a World Away".[9], in Massive Attack's song Teardrop, and in the intro to Metallica's "Fight Fire With Fire" from their second album Ride The Lightning.

Siberian Khatru has a short harpsichord solo, it starts at 3:14. "Madrigal" on Tormato also has harpsichord.

According to the notes of Born to Run, Professor Roy Bittan plays Harpsichord on the song Night. I personally can't hear it, but that's what it says.

I'm pretty sure the song "Because" from The Beatles has some.

I think that in "Because" there is an Harmonium, not a Harpsichord.
