The Mellotron is probably one of the most popular instruments in Prog-Rock.

Many songs by The Moody Blues use the Mellotron, The Beatles use it on "Strawberry Fields Forever".

Can anyone else tell me what other songs use a Mellotron?

Little known fact...

Procol Harum's song "Magdalene (My Regal Zonophone)" has a mellotron played at the end of the song by Gary Brooker.

Led Zeppelin uses the mellotron for the live version of "Stairway to Heaven"...And some people may be interested in these! :peace:

Rick Wakeman used mellotron a lot both in his albums and in the Yes albums he played on. Listen for example to Heart of the sunrise.
