My frist song was time of your life by greenday. It is great for learning some basic chords; however, the beginning can be a bit tricky but its good practice. And lots of people know and love the song!
try boss dj by sublime, its only 2 chords, G and C, the strumming pattern is all you have to master. easy to sing along with too.
You could try:
Behind blue eyes (the Who)
Lady Jane (Rolling Stones)
House of the rising sun (animals)

Some oldies but goldies
Easiest song to make sound good solo - Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond (search for the TAB on Google) - Chords (All major) - A, D and E - Bring it on!

Also Let it Be - Beatles, reasonably easy and effective chords - typical Beatles.

Dave the Rave - "You can't sack me! - I'm Sack-less!"

Yamaha FGX412
Takamine CEB
Roland Cube
Korg Tuner CA-30
Couple of 1960's Echo Super Vampers mouth harps.
(. . . plus a cheap Rogue black Dread'nt 6 String and a black Mandolin in USA)
Brain damaged - Pink Floyd
Dean Icon PZ
Line 6 Variax 700
Dean V-Wing
Dean ML 79 SilverBurst
MXR M 108
H2O Chorus/Echo
Valve Junior (V3 Head/Cab and Combo)
VHT Special 6
Phonic 620 Power Pod PA
Wampler Super Plextortion
Line 6 Pod HD
Tribute by Tenacious D, really easy and one of the best for starting IMO.
through glass-stone sour

just three chords over and over, and it sounds good

Well, that settles it then. The only fair thing to do is shoot Zakk Wylde

Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds by The Beatles. Very Simple Song, but also a good one (in my opinion).

You win this thread. Pipe organs FTW.
