    now when you ask for modern and what teens are listening to, i think of these 3 bands, all 3, sure to be platinum artists if not already use piano in all their music. as for the difficulty im not 100% it is difficult in general, but can say very present and very beautiful. without the piano in any of these songs they'd be flat. so, heres your list of "modern songs" that "teens are listening to":

    anything by coldplay (difficulty varies alot by song)?

    I'm not sure if teens these days nessesarily listen to these, but

    Anything by Andrew Lloyd Webber, particularly the Phantom of the Opera. My favorite is The Music of the Night.

    The music from Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings. I don't think they are incredibly difficult, but they are worth playing just the same. Try "Medallion Calls" and "He's a Pirate" from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and "In Dreams" and "Into the West"

    Along the theme of movie music: everyone loves Star Wars. Try "Main Theme", "The Imperial March", "Coronation March" and the newer "Across the Stars". John Williams has also written other numerous wonderful piano pieces, such as "Hedwig's Theme" and "Philosopher's Stone"

    And Disney. Everyone loves Disney..

    For some more radio-like songs that would be popular:

    Don't Stop Believin'- Journey (old, but always popular)

    Yesterday- The Beatles

    Hey There Deliah- The Plain White T's

    Stairway to Heaven- ?

    Viva la Vida- Coldplay

    I like to take non-piano songs and arrange them on the piano. You can make them as hard as you want, and any song works.

    He's playing one of my favorite songs "Diary of Jane" by Breaking Benjamin. I think he's pretty good. It's a difficult song to play.

    ;)

  • Anything by Yiruma.. He;s my favorite piano artist of all time, and me and my BFF have such a hard time learning his songs.

    Here are some playlists:
