Sputnik Pianists

This May, I'm going to enter at a piano competition for a second time. I'm supposed to play two solo pieces, one more emotional and melodic and the other more technical, and the two must be from different time periods. My piano instructor and I have decided that for my second piece, I'll play something contemporary (Like Prokofiev. Not stuff like Max Richter). However, I'm not very well acquainted with this period, so could you guys rec me some thing I could try and learn?
1Yndi Halda
Enjoy Eternal Bliss

Frederic Chopin-Polonaise Op 26 N#1 in C Sharp Minor. I'll be playing this one at the competition.
2Explosions in the Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

Haydn-Sonata In D Major 1st movement. This one:
I played this at the competition last year.
3 Procol Harum
A Whiter Shade Of Pale

Frederic Chopin-Nocturne Op 9 No 2
Also played this one last year.
4Morbid Angel
Blessed Are The Sick

Frederic Chopin-Nocturne In C Sharp Minor Op Posthumous
5Johnny Cash
American IV: The Man Comes Around

Moritz Moszkowski-Etude Op 72 No 2 (I've got this one 3/4 done, I'd play it at the competition, but non-Chopin etudes aren't allowed and both this and the polonaise are romantic pieces).

Mikhail Glinka-Variations On A Russian Theme
7The Beatles
Abbey Road
8 Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort
Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort
9Leonard Cohen
Songs Of Leonard Cohen
