The contestant on this week's Piano Puzzler is Jessie J. Marshall from Tallahassee, Florida. I got the song extremely quickly, within about five seconds. The genre of the composer style was clear, as well, but pinpointing it to the specific composer was trickier for me -- though I suspect not for some. I narrowed it down to two...and alas, guessed the wrong one, which I've found that I tend to do even though he's one of my favorites . Surprisingly, most especially since I thought the song was so clear, the contestant didn't have a clue with either.. But if you don't know the song, you don't know it. But it's pretty well-known.
