The Bill Awards

And the winner for best use of background keyboards in a song is... Aimee Mann for her song Phoenix. It's a distillation of Everlast's quiet hip-hop-influenced keyboards and a whole lot of beautiful harmonic exploration. You can get a taste of the keys in the video here, but the performance and mix are much better on the album, @#%&*! Smilers.
