If you know the tune of this song, you would surely appreciate this versatile pianist for playing this song so sensationally.

The next is “Buy you a Drink” that was given to the music world by T-Pain and Yung Joc, whose piano version was again from the hands of David Sides. What adds more beauty for this piano version is that, he gives a beautiful touch for the piano music with regular intervals of snapping his fingers throughout the song. He manages so beautifully between the piano and his snapping fingers.
