I found this on the internet once and learned how to play it, though without quite as much flair as the very talented pianist in the video.  Very satisfying nonetheless.

Because i committed it to memory i can play it anywhere in the world, even in your living room if you asked me to.

WOW! If you are ever in St Joe MO can you come play that in my living room? (actually the piano is in the den)

Also I have taken your advice about committing songs to memory.  Whenever I sit down to practice I quickly play through the songs I've memorized to help solidify them into my memory.  Obviously once I learn more songs I won't be able to do this every time but it's helping for now. So far I have memorized Auld Lang Syne, Joy To The World, and a simplified version of Lavender's blue. Now working on Somewhere Over The Rainbow.

Spracne, are you enjoying the piano? Did it live up to your expectations?

It's still boxed up because I'm lazy.

All you have to do is screw the legs on that's what she said just do it already sheesh!

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is absolutely kicking my butt right now.  I'm making progress though. I'll post some sound when I have it mastered.

Also what 'cool' song (I mean not a song from by learning book) should I try to play first?

Joel is always a good decision. I found "And So It Goes" and "She's Got a Way" to be pretty easy.

I mean sure, yeah, you could try to learn And So It Goes but like how are you going to play when you have a giant lump in your throat bc you’re trying to fight back the tears? Really bad advice here

BAC, I didn't just give you this heart for you to proceed to break it.
