Default Songs featuring Glockenspiel/Xylophone

Hi all, I have been searching for some good Glockenspiel/Xylophone/Vibraphone songs. I recently purchashed my glock and have been trying to get some extra inspiration. Got any good ones? Props if theres a bell solo in it!

This has got one in the middle that sounds really good. Kinda sounds like it has delay on it too.

As far as vibes go this is definitely a favourite.

Speaking of Frank Zappa here is a nice cover by Jean Luc Ponty of King Kong from Uncle Meat.

It doesn't drive the whole song, but I like the vibraphone on this.

^^^ Yeah, I was getting to the bottom and thinking, "No one's posted Gone Daddy Gone", but there it is. I'm pretty hard pressed to think of anything else.

I actually think a marimba was used on that song, but that's just splitting hairs.

Pretty much every song put out by Pierre Moerlen's Gong or Gongzilla

Gongzilla is an off-shoot of Pierre Moerlen's Gong which was an off-shoot of Gong which also had some use of percussion.
