    Definitely, a very unique instrument! I love hearing some of the old German Polka Music, and the Who's homage to the instrument in their song Squeeze Box!

    The accordion is a portable box-shaped musical instrument of the hand-held bellows-driven free-reed aerophone family, sometimes referred to as a squeezebox. A person who plays the accordion is called an accordionist.

    It is played by compressing or expanding a bellows whilst pressing buttons or keys, causing valves, called pallets, to open, which allow air to flow across strips of brass or steel, called reeds, that vibrate to produce sound inside the body.[notes 1]

    The instrument is sometimes considered a one-man-band as it needs no accompanying instrument. The performer normally plays the melody on buttons or keys on the right-hand manual, and the accompaniment — consisting of bass and pre-set chord buttons — on the left-hand manual.

    The accordion is often used in folk music in Europe, North America and South America. It is commonly associated with busking. Some popular music acts also make use of the instrument. Additionally, the accordion is sometimes used in both solo and orchestra performances of classical music.

    Squeeze Box 2'39
    (Pete Townshend) � 1975 Towser Tunes, Inc. (adm. by Longitude Music Co.) - BMI
    Often played on stage, 'Squeeze Box' was released as a single in January 1976. It reached #10 in the U.K. charts and #16 in the U.S. Recorded on May 30.

    [Pete: "Intended as a poorly aimed dirty joke. I had bought myself an accordion and learned to play it one afternoon. The polka-esque rhythm I managed to produce from it brought forth this song. Amazingly recorded by The Who to my disbelief. Further incredulity was caused when it became a hit for us in the USA."

    "Squeeze Box" was originally intended for a Who television special planned for 1974 where the song was to be performed by The Who accompanied by 100 topless lady accordianists! Backed with "Success Story", it was released first in the U.S. November 22nd, 1975 in the middle of the 1975 North American tour. It reached #16 in the Billboard charts and #11 in the Cash Box charts. It also spent 16 weeks in the Billboard Top 100 singles chart, the longest for any Who single. When I saw them play this live in 1975, Pete and Roger rocked their hips back and forth during the "in and out" part leaving no doubt as to the meaning! Dropped from the live act after 1976 but resurfaced in 1982. "Squeeze Box" was also recorded country-style by Laura Branigan and Freddy Fender.]

    Very unique version of the song!

    I had been familiar with the Nightwish version.

    I have trouble with the you tube option as well.

    I personally dislike chromatic Accordion more than the Piano Accordion.
    The chromatic accordion got much more East Influence than the Piano accordion.
    It´s somewhat Cryptical in it..

    less piano's in the East

    that's Probably why they go for the chromatic its easy to learn but if you have played Piano(all the German side of my family have) then the Piano accordion makes more sense

    the Chromatic is considered a more efficient design and as i dont play Piano

    Hurdy gurdy, bagpipe, celtic flute... It's a tie for me between those three.
