Ladies and Gentlemen, Let Us Discuss... the Piano. And Gaming.
I play the piano. I started 13 years ago. However, for the last two years I have touched my very (VERY) over-the-top fancy keyboard only a handful of times. So the other day I came across some YouTube videos of people playing covers of good cartoon and video game songs, like the Kingdom Hearts theme, or 'Go the Distance' from Hercules. I know plenty of Halo songs, but other than that I am quite limited.
The piano is one of the most capable instruments around of delivering an emotional impact via music. It can be powerful, soft, dramatic, mellow, and on. It is incredibly versatile. While I am certainly biased, I believe the piano is the greatest instrument for versatility and emotional projection around. Not that I think it can do that by itself, of course. Other instruments such as the Saxophone are certainly necessary.
So, internet. I would like your help. I would very much like to get back into practice. My skills have greatly deteriorated these last few years, and the only songs I can do are the ones I have muscle memory of (songs like Clocks, 100 Years, Piano Man, and lots of Halo songs to name a few examples). I would greatly enjoy getting some new sheet music.
Bnet. What are some powerful, impact-ful songs from your childhood or gaming history that would sound marvelous on the piano? Right now I have sheet music for 'Prince Ali' from Aladdin. I also have 'Skyfall.' I'd love to get the Kingdom Hearts theme, but I have had no luck finding the sheet music for it I can just download.
So discuss the piano as an instrument of emotion in gaming (ODST blew my mind!), and if possible name off some famous, classic songs our community would likely love to hear. Thank you!
