I am a guitar player but now I have become incredibly obsessed with playing the piano. I want to know some of the piano greats. I mean songs with the best piano parts.

Please do not name the following because I can already play them. (I know you will though just to piss me off)

Don't Stop Believing
Mellon Collie and the Infinate Sadness
Jump
Right Now

Cars Trucks Buses - Phish
Apocalypse Please - Muse

I got kicked out of a Mac store when me and my friends simultaneously put on meatspin on all of the computers in the store. Some eleven or twelve year old looking girls there freaked out.

Pretty much anything by Billie Joel.

I'd play Scenes From an Italian Restaurant cause that song is sweet.

Learn Muse songs. Bellamy goes from guitar to keyboards in the course of the same song. That could be useful.

This may be a little different from most of the suggestions here, but check out "A Departure In Solitude" by Naglfar. I don't think it's that hard to play, and it sounds really awesome.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Dude, just a find a cheap little Casio keyboard and figure it out! A basic understanding of music theory will make it very easy. It's not difficult to play as long as you don't try to be Bach.

any of the nocturnes written by chopin


Precisely! this is ecellent advice. Also, if you want an esoteric melodic feel to your style try anything by Nobou Uematsu, Muse, or Dream Theater (a little on the harder side but well worth the effort).
