Sometimes, pianists get so caught up in technique that we forget that the music can be fun and light and something to dance to, if your heart so desires.
My friends often send me music, and I’ve just gotten these piano solos from Molly. Most of them are pop piano songs and I’ve just been reminded of how tired I am. (These videos are recordings of other people playing, and sheet music is linked.)
After Tofino and a stressful week, I’m ready for some easy dancing…
1. Wake Me Up – Avicii
2. Cheap Thrills – Sia
This recording by Piano Lover needs drums. Just saying.
3. Closer – The Chainsmokers
I am a huge fan of the Chainsmokers. I saw them live a few weeks ago and I could’ve touched them. If only I were closer.
4. Umbrella – Rihanna
5. Despacito – Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber
6. Stay – Alessia Cara, Zedd
7. Super Bass – Nicki Minaj
8. Attention – Charlie Puth
