I'm still in the midst of lessons, almost done, so I haven't personally chosen that many pieces because they look fun, but I do have a few favorites. My favorites are Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Pachelbel's Canon in D (transposed to piano), and Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag (even though my hand is barely big enough for the octaves...) What are your favs?

I like Moonlight Sonata but I can't say I enjoy playing it. It always makes me feel like I have short fingers even though I do not. Maybe I'll have to memorize it eventually though, it is very nice. I'd have to say my favorite song to play however, is Fur Elise. That is so much fun to play and I really like the song. So much that it is the only piano piece I have memorized. Right now I'm working on Mozart's K545 (the whole thing eventually, but currently just the first movement).

first off, i dont play piano. my sister does though, and she is the one who got me interested in music. i listen to a lot of diffrent things like jazz, metal, classical, rock, covers and stuff like that. one of my alltime favs on piano is called "Walk in the Dusk" by Daisuke Ishiwateri. its from a video game he did called guilty gear x, but the song itself is very beutiful, even though the original version has snare, violin, and what sounds like an oboe in it. its worth a listen to at youtube.com/watch?v=oMu5tq0euG8
