Marilyn Manson- Last Day On Earth (you never know, you may want to seduce a 14 year old Hot Topic m4llg0ff!)

An acoustic rendition of 'Invincible' by Muse would make my proverbial pussy wet.

Eat_0n_Kent
05-15-2007, 05:19 AM
Hawthorne Heights-Ohio Is For Lovers and Taking Back Sunday-Cute Without the E.
you have to sing of course tho.

Your Guardian Angel - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Killer acoustic song, you can go sans-distortion for the ending.

An acoustic version of Until The Day I Die would probably please the Hot Topic set, as well.

Auals
05-15-2007, 06:07 AM
Ohio Is For Lovers is good acoustic, i'll give it that

I like "The Calendar Hung Itself" by Bright Eyes but it gets less sweet afterwards

Speaking of Bright Eyes i'll list some good ones

Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh
You Will. You? Will. You? Will.
It's Cool We Can Still Be Friends - if you're looking to make them feel sorry for you :p:

the be all and end all
"First Day Of My Life" - Bright Eyes

mind you "a perfect sonnet" or "Blue angels air show" would work well

^ Beat me to it with the Frampton.


They're more difficult, but any slow song by Hendrix would probably do the trick. The Wind Cries Mary, Angel or Little Wing...or maybe even Castles Made of Sand. They're all wonderful songs that I think most girls would love sung to them.

yes really, read it again

in fact i'll help you

Such Great Heights was released January 21, 2003 by The Postal Service under the Sub Pop Records label. The EP includes the previously released title track "Such Great Heights", one new track "There's Never Enough Time" and two cover tracks by The Shins and Iron & Wine of "We Will Become Silhouettes" and "Such Great Heights," respectively.

you fail

EDIT: i understand your confusion,

Such Great Heights the one that doesn't say it's a cover is actually their interpretation of the song, where as the cover is an actual cover (to my knowledge, that is the only way i can explain it)

read the whole wikipedia before you throw darts and start quoting

"Iron & Wine's cover of "Such Great Heights" was in Zach Braff's 2004 film Garden State and on its soundtrack, for which Braff won a Grammy."

It's not that hard... just, you need an incredible voice to let it sound good.

Apologies, i misread, double apologies for being a tool in the post before. No hard feelings.

Personally, getting something to sound good is part of what makes it hard, which is why i consider it (Fake Plastic Trees) a hard song to sing. I can do the jumps and sometimes it's sounds good but hitting it everytime perfectly like Thom does is beyond me at the moment, sorry if that's taking your point too far, it's like 1am and i'm not thinking straight.

Secondly, good song choices

Play "Love of My Life", like Brian May did in concert. It was so ****in' awesome. I nearly cried, because he dedicated it to Freddie. You need a 12 string to make it truly awesome, though.

U2 - With or Without You

Works great on an acoustic, with just 4 chords, easy to learn and if the girl doesnt fall for With or Without You, she just isnt worth it.

I would say Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd), Blackbird (Beatles), and/or Spoke in the Wheel (Zakk Wylde--Just don't sing like Zakk does; he's not so romantic).
