Acoustic songs every player should know

Hey guys,

Summer's here and with that comes lots of time for practice and learning. I'm just curious to know what some people regard as "must-know" songs - for the acoustic guitar player.

Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band

It's a fantastic song, isn't too hard to play once you get the pattern down, and women love that song.

I agree with that, but it's extremely difficult to play because you're basically playing slap bass on guitar.
Instead, do "No Such Thing" by John Mayer. Girls love it and it's not too hard, maybe even fun to play!

Hey Soul Sister by Train is easy to remember the lyrics and chords for. Strumming rhythm is quite simple. It's a fun tempo song too. Great for bonfires and camping trips if you're into that kind of stuff.
