I play four different mallet percussion instruments in my music department (bells/glockenspiel, marimba/xylophone, chimes, and vibraphone), so I have a deep appreciation for artists talented enough to make the cut onto famous tunes. Here's a collection I've made into a playlist:

I didn't include Broadway show tunes or classical because I wanted to include special examples of rock music that utilize this quite underrated section of instruments.

What are some other ones?
