Rewrite the Stars from The Greatest Showman

“I think life comes at us in seasons. I’ve thought a lot about this. When you feel like you’re in winter, you get that feeling that everything is bleak — and that you’ve got nothing to look forward to. The sun is gone; it’s completely overcast in your life. Those are the times for me when I’m feeling writer’s block, I’m feeling depression, I’m feeling complete struggle, just wondering whether I can even weather the storm.

Then I feel like all of us have this invincible summer within us.

It’s people, places, memories that we can draw upon that make the sunlight come out. To me, that’s what Julie is. I look back on all the memories we have together. Each and every one of them coalesce and overcome all the difficult times and the struggle. All I think about is the love I have for her and who I am because of her.

I wish I could even portray, with music, what she means to me. I can’t. There’s just not music beautiful enough. However, I want to give it my best shot. So for the first time, in all the years of doing the Piano Guys, I finally get to play beside my inspiration: My wife, Julie Nelson.”

Something Just Like This / Hungarian Rhapsody - Liszt - The Piano Guys

Something Just Like This / Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 – The Piano Guys

This mash-up of “Something Just Like This” and “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2” is one of our most intricate arrangements yet. When Liszt wrote music, especially for his 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies, it’s like he was piling material from several “hit songs” into a compilation of dazzling, finger-flying feats of melody and harmony.

We picked our favorite themes from his staggering Second Rhapsody and wrote them right on top of the sticky melodies and chord progressions from “Something Just Like This.” The idea was inspired by our recent tour, which included a concert in the incomparable city of Budapest, where the model for this match-up was molded. We present, “Something Just Like Liszt!”

The Sweetest Gift - The Piano Guys, Craig Aven - Christmas Together

Missing someone at Christmas?, This song is for you – The Sweetest Gift – The Piano Guys ft. Craig Aven

As my wife and I listened to the words of this song, it expressed exactly what we were feeling. It also gave us what we needed at the time.  That was comfort.  So many people struggle with loss at this time of year, not just me.  If you are missing someone this Christmas, I want to dedicate this song to you.  I also want to dedicate it to Annie, my sweet Annie, who I miss very much.

I Saw Three Ships - The Piano Guys

88 Piano Keys Control 500,000 Christmas Lights! I Saw Three Ships – The Piano Guys

“I Saw 3 Ships is one of my very favorite pieces to play on the piano. It is just pure fun. Arranged, over 20 years ago, it still stands as the arrangement that was hardest for me to finish. It was a 6 month process to get the arrangement to finally feel right.” – Jon Schmidt
