Piano makes everything better...
I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it. Adding piano to your song will make it 1000% better than it was before.

Let's test the theory, shall we? First listen to Skrillex. I warn you, this shit stain on the music industry will probably make your ears bleed a little. This is Dub Step and it is terrible. You should at LEAST listen to the first 1:00 of the video, as "the drop" happens at :45 and you don't want to miss it. To understand all that is dubstep, this is all you need to understand. It's electronic...heavy base, and at some point it "drops" into just random noise.
I always wondered what my kids would listen to that would piss me off. This is it. All those years of Nine Inch Nails my parents had to suffer through...this will be my punishment, I'm sure of it.
Anyways, on to prove the theory, right? So you listened to at least a minute of that last one right? What...you listened to the whole thing!? Way to hang in there, I'm impressed. Anyways, here's the exact same song, arranged on a piano.
Ahhhh, that's SO MUCH BETTER isn't it? When you can actually hear the melodies and movements, and you start to wonder if maybe Skrillex is a secret musical genius who just happens to make his millions banging on a sound board instead of a real instrument?
It's that awkward moment when you realize that you maybe should have stuck with the piano like your mom wanted you to.
