    But it's nice..
    What about Debussy's Reverie?
    Didn't think of Reverie, will probably do this.

    Go for a bit of Rachmaninov, you know you want to.


    Or Muse - Space Dementia, Coldplay - Lovers in Japan, or Sigur Ros - Hoppipolla

    River flows in you. Most girls will love it, I'm even trying to practice it myself.
    Don't learn this, it's rubbish. Fur Elise is also too clichéd. I know Claire de Lune is probably Debussy's most well-known work but it's always impressive. I don't think you could go wrong with any of his works, maybe excluding the Children's Corner scores.

    You should sing then! It's a talent you should make the most of, girls seem to love it too

    As for what song, I have no idea as it would depend on your voice etc!
    Singing wise I'm pretty solid, can handle most styles.

    Last show I did I sang/played
    Brown - Mans world
    Unkle - Price you pay, the piano aspect is rather dull on this though, so i hooked up my korg and put a strings on it :cool:

    Also did a cover of Hoodo - Muse which rocked

    I second Debussy!! But not clair de lune, too corny esp. since they put it in twilight... Try 1st Arabesque, it's breathtaking!

    Girl coming over who is kinda decent.
    Said I'll get a treat if I play her something on my piano.
    She didn't say what style or give specific song so I need some advice on what to play

    I was thinking something like, fur elise, sonata, MSonata. Alternatively I could do a cover of most songs, anything by coldplay etc.

    Post some youtube links/ideas. Don't worry if its a cover I play acoustically.
    Coldplay sounds like a good idea, especially if you sing. maybe 'fix you' - kinda sad yet sweet at the same time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBEYy...eature=related or this 'clocks' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDFmu...eature=related
    Or, a bit cliche, but Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley is beautiful (singing starts at 1.00) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3-_DbEYe7A
    Or 'with or without you' by U2
    geez, i wish i had a guy to play piano and sing to me...got any friends?
    Good luck x

    I wouldn't play these typical cliche pieces. If you have to go for something saccharine, Liszt's Liebestraume 3. Chopin etude op 25 no 1 would be nice, or some Schubert.

    Personally I'd play this

    hmm... How about "I giorni" by Einaudi? Or if you're singing then "tears in heaven" by eric clapton is good and pretty easy... Or what that guy said earlier, chopin etude op 25 no. 1 if you're brave enough to play it lol

    definitely support claire de lune and chasing cars. I find pop songs better because other people playing classical pieces when they're not half decent makes me irritated. Oh yea yiruma too, anything by him is amazing!
