I wonder if you could further subdivide between songs where the piano/keyboard is a main sound (“Not A Second Time ,” “Lady Madonna ,” “Martha …”) vs just there to add substance – a little mayonnaise for the sandwich.

[not that you haven’t done enough already!]

It would be possible but I think in many cases some people would say it’s a main part adn some would say it’s not. For example the piano plays something like a riff in One After 909 ; is this a main part or not? In some cases it’s quite obvious that it’s a main part (the examples you named, let it be, A Day In The Life , get back) and in some cases it’s quite obvious it isn’t (She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (if there is one; I read it, but I’m not sure whether the sound, about which i think that it’s a piano, is really a piano, Across The Universe ) but in many cases it’s unfortunately not
