Default piano piece suggestions?

hey for my piano class my professor wants us to pick a piece and play it. i choose this piece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_z6PAdH4Tk its a very slow ballad type piece in g minor. he wants me to pick another piece in addition to that one( cause i blew by that one in a day).
any one have suggestions for a second piece? i do like minor keys but i am open to anything. not to long and not ridiculously hard either(i have only been playing a little while)

please and thanks =)

Try Bohemian Rhapsody or Save Me, songs by QUEEN. Freddy Mercurie played the piano very good.

All The Best,

The first thing that comes to mind is the Chopin Prelude in A Major, or find an easy prelude in a minor key, I think the c minor one is easy.
(Chopin played piano very good too.)

I would recommend the The Music for Millions series Easy Classics to Moderns published by Amsco

if you like working hard then i say Chopin Ballade 1 in G minor. i played it at my senior recital couple years ago. its pure passion!! but pretty difficult. depends on what you mean by "a little while" i guess.... hope you find something you like playing!

This is my fav. My niece would listen to me playing it growing up as a child. Both she and her sister took piano growing up. When I attended her first recital at age 13, she played this tune and I cried.
