there are many pumpkin tunes, like mellon collie, blank page, for martha, etc.

i also dig a few radiohead tunes like fog and like spinning plates live, along with we suck young blood. muse also pulls it off pretty well.

curious to other people's opinions, could go for a good piano tune right now.

A lot of NIN's material has really cool piano lines in it. Likewise with Radiohead.

I really love how her music reflects her attitude, I think that song and Fast As You Can are pretty good examples of that. I just love her :)

Pretty much the whole NIN album still, it's his old songs arranged for piano, he has a band backing him, but it's more organic than most of his work. There are a few instrumentals too.

This album has some really awesome moments on it, especially the first track, Something I Can Never Have

Yeah, thats defintaly one of my favorite NIN songs, he sounds so heartfelt singing it. Actually, come to think of it, most of my favorite NIN songs are the renditions of old songs on still.
