I reckon many Beatle songs can be acousticized- here's few that came to mind:
"If I Fell"
"Till There Was You"-( not their song but I love their version)
"Rocky Raccoon"
"Golden Slumbers"
and no one mentioned yet perhaps the most covered song in history:
"Yesterday"

Hey Jude
Accros The Universe
Two of Us
All My Loving

I've been playing these four a lot over the last few weeks. I've been a Beatles fan as long as I can remember but just recently got on a kick of playing some of their songs. These four are easy to play and more importantly, fun to play.
