I am learning and love the song Busted by Harlan Howard. Great depression era style old country song. Also "I still sing the old songs," by David Allen Coe. Lovely acoustic song, and very simple.

In your atmosphere by John Mayer is by far one of my favorites. Its just one of those songs you feel as you play it.

Don't Stop Me Now - Queen.

The F->Gm->Am->Dm is addictive.

My favorite acoustic song to play changes over time depending on my mood and what feels good to play.

I like "The Sage" by Greg Lake - very moody and you can play around alot.
"I follow the Sun" by the Beatles is another
"Behind Blue Eyes" is instantly recognizable and crowds like it.
I guess "Mood for a Day" by Steve Howe would be there too because it's just fun and challenging to play
