Songs are they what?

Edit: Bah, didn't like what I tried to do. I'd like to add Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah to the list. Too cliche, and probably too mainstream for the likes of most people around here, but I think it deserves a spot.

I'm surprised Andy Mckee, Don Ross and all the other great acoustic artists isn't on the list at all. Quite a few songs on the list are really acoustic covers of songs usually played with a full band (although I think very often acoustic covers sounds better then the original studio version).
I think it is quite a shame there isn't more actual acoustic songs on the list.

Essentially, I think there can't be 50 best acoustics songs. Too many different people and opinions, there's always going to be major disagreement.
