 Some good choices. One of the top of my head that I would include would be "Autumn Sweater" by Yo La Tengo, which I think has an organ.

 I would add Spoon's "Small Stakes" and "Paper Tiger" to this list. Driving, rhythmic organ in the former; spiky, stabbing, sparse, and ominous in the latter.

 ------ and hunky dory: Great calls. Both "Secret Wars" and "Small Stakes" barely missed the cut. I do especially regret my Spoon omission.

 Love the organ on "Secret Wars" but (esp. on "Capt Bo...") I think that's pretty much covered by Clinic circa "2/4". Great list, and great added suggestions - is "Autumn Sweater" actually organ?

 Nearly anything by Mr. Quintron rips these songs apart, good as they might be.

 I'd include the version of "Ocean" with John Cale on organ, but I guess since it's not an official track on anything it wouldn't be eligible.
