classical piano is always a good base if u want to get really good, but if you want to play something u know, maybe Look What You've Done by Jet?

Try the orchestral part of the first part of the first movement of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1.


But do NOT NOT NOT NOT attempt the piano part

Beginning of Pachelbel's Canon in D. Everyone knows that, and its quite simple at the start.

^ Might as well just try whole song (though maybe not for your "first" song).

Imagine by John Lennon is very easy, and everyone knows it.

Look what you've Done sounds like it's similar technique, so that'd probably work, but I haven't actually played it. And Drops of Jupiter by Train is easy, as well.

Once you're a little more comfortable with the piano, stuff like the outro to Layla and The Great Gig In the Sky by Pink Floyd should be doable. They're nothing extremely difficult, but they're a notch above immediate beginner.

Quite easy but it sounds great and makes you seem good.
