"My Old Piano" is a song by American singer Diana Ross. The song written and produced by Chic members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, was released as the third and final single in the United States, and the second single in the United Kingdom and other countries, from her tenth studio album, Diana (1980).

Ross sings the song about the joy of playing a piano, describing it as if it were a person.

Unlike Upside Down and I'm Coming Out, My Old Piano was not as successful in the United States; however, it was a commercial success in Europe, particularly in the UK, where it earned her a British Phonographic Industry silver disc award for sales in excess of 250,000 copies.

In the music video, Ross appears performing the song in an apartment with an old piano.[1]
