A favorite synth line of mine is on the end of ABBA's 'Lay all your love on me'.

I tried to recreate it on my Sub Phatty

One of favorite Minimoog solos is from Starbuck.
The band that used several minis in it.

The song is an instrument called Bordello Bordeaux and can be heard at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlEWWuYeZ_c

Lots of xylophone and minimoog.

The solo starts at 3:35

Enjoy!!

This is one of my favorites, because it's very fun. My grandmother didn't like this one when driving her around in her car.

(And Mr. Roboto, as corny as that is, was the song that I heard probably 1986 or so....the sample and hold at the end really made me wonder what the hell that was and I loved it!)

I had to re-read this thread, to see if I had already posted to it in years past :) Since it's been resurrected…most of my personal faves have already been mentioned, but I'd add Eddie Jobson's Minimoog solo on "I Promise Not To Come In Your Mouth" (blame FZ for the title, not EJ or me…Eddie mentioned that he hated it, in a old Keyboard interview) from Zappa in New York…pretty stunning performance, you can hear him developing the style he continued to use on the UK albums.

Funny to see a thread take a 9 year hiatus and then come back to life as if nothing happened...

:lol:


I`m familiar with MANY, MANY songs and I still don`t know the titles of many of them or forgot through the years and I never took care about.......
Just like with the singing, I sang SO MANY songs in 45 years, just still know the lyrics but NEVER took care about their content.....
