Once again I'm looking for new songs to play on the piano. I did a topic like this earlier, but since I was only looking for a certain type of songs that time, I made a new topic instead of bumping the old one

So...what's your favorite songs to play on the piano (or another instrument)
My own personal favorites should be:
Humoresque of a little dog - Earthbound So fun to play <3 Ragtime at it's best
Going To Where The Wind Blows - Soul Calibur One of the most beautiful songs I know on the piano
Gruntilda's Lair - Banjo Kazooie So much improvisation in this song
Athletic Theme - Super Mario World Playing this at full speed is just great (yes, I can play it)
Overworld - Super Mario Bros 2 The improvisation possibilities! Btw, I choosed Brentalfloss' version since he always inspire me a lot when I play
I got more, but those have to do for now.

Your favorites?

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

Does anyone else think that FFII's "Fighting" would sound good in a rock cover?

I'd love to see that! I'm learning this too, and I could really use the inspiration!
Say, you're experienced, what's the best way to go around learning to play that?

But back to the original topic at hand, I'd have to say that Dire Dire Docks is way up there on my list of favorites.

"NEW WAVE BOSSA NOVA"
Absolute favorite. So simplistic(?), but yet so wonderful!
I know there are harder and  more epic, like Primal Dialga, but it just dug a hole in my heart and filled it with its awesome melody. <3

Fleetstar The Flygon

Checker Knights - Kirby's Air Ride is my all-time favorite song. It's also the first song I've ever arranged for, though it's poor so I wish I had another piano plus another pianist to play the version on NSM with...

That song is one of the best examples or training always being the best way to learn. Just practice it over and over again, no other tips.
I got a couple of songs I use to "play" with my fingers while on the bus or just when I'm bored/waiting. Humoresque of a Little Dog, SMW2-Athletic and that one are some of those I normally tap

@fleet I planned on asking someone later on if (s)he wanted to do a duet on that song with me, but I haven't learned the song yet (only a small part).
I'm a little busy with other songs and stuff right now, but maybe later?
