  • Best keyboard riffs from the 90s and 00s?

    I'm looking for some suggestions. What are the best keyboard riffs from the 90s and 00s that are recognizable by a large audience?

    The ones they stole from the 80s.

            So far I've got Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity and Daft Punk - Around The World. Can't think of anything else other than dance songs...

            Can be anything really. R&B, pop, hiphop, etc. As long as it's popular with a big audience.

              Uh, Tubular Bells came out in 1973.
              And it's based on Mike Oldfield's guitar playing.

              How about Trouble by Coldplay?

                Pretty sure that Haddaway's "What Is Love?" will be remembered by future alien races as the greatest music composition planet Earth had to offer between the 90's and 00's. This decade doesn't count, as they are planning on blowing us up next year and blasting this song on a megaphone as they do so.

                          It somehow took me about twenty years to realize this, but Haddaway's "What Is Love" totally ripped off "Halcyon" by Orbital. Not sure why this never registered with me before. Nostalgia don't hurt me, no more.

                            Man it is hard for me to think about the 90's. I was addicted to country at the time.

                              I liked the synth solo in that remix of Mike Posner's "Cooler Than Me" that pop radio hammered into the ground.
