Default Piano songs to learn (like 'All of me' by Jon Schmidt)

Hello drummers,

Although drum is my main instrument, my first instrument was a piano and I play it very regularly now because I can't have a drumset in my student room right now. :(

I'm looking for songs like 'All of me' by Jon Schmidt. I can totally play it by heart, but now i'm searching for another song that is this challenging and this beautiful.

What I like in 'All of me' is the combination of (ultra) high and low keys in the song. Any suggestions for other songs from other composers?

Kind Regards,

Sander Bos

I play piano on occasion, but back in the day I was pretty serious and classically trained. Took lessons for five years.
Bruce Hornsby's playing (Bruce Hornsby and the Range) has some good piano tunes and also some great solos. Not sure that material is as challenging as 'All of Me', in fact it probably isn't. But I have fun with it and find it challenging. (mostly the sight-reading and learning it)
