Something uptempo and, preferably, upbeat. People don't want you to bring them down when they're on their way to work. Oldies work well (ever see the Stand By Me video on YouTube?), and somebody mentioned Beatles. Almost nobody doesn't like the Beatles.

If you have to play something that isn't upbeat, play old blues numbers. But only if you can play old blues well, or else you'll sound like a complete poser.

Do some funnyish songs. Like some Loudon Wainwright or something, that'll probably seperate you from the guys trying to shed their souls on a street corner. Some Reggae usually gets you noticed to. Get someone to play some bongos aswell, everyone loves a good beat ... just spitballin' here.

If you do some reggae try some Eddy Grant or Bob Marley.

Maybe some hendrix? Like Little Wing or something?

Do that and throw in some chart songs and you've pretty much got all your bases covered.

'Blowin' in the Wind' by Dylan, assuming that you're playing acoustically. If not, do a thrash version of 'Blowin' in the Wind' and alter the lyrics to make it about fellatio.
Yes, I use a Squier bass.

Play any Tenacious D song for that matter.

Like Classico. And get a friend to sing.

I made $22 busking in my really small town on the sidewalk next to the movie theater with this "set list":

Wonderwall - Oasis
I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Pick of Destiny - Tenacious D
While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles
1, 2, 3, 4 - The Plain White T's
Like A Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan

It's really important to try and get a rotation of diverse songs. Try to appeal to as many people as you can. It helps if you know the musical likings of the people in you're town.
I have no sig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's not advanced, it's basic chords with some nifty picking.

I've been working on learning that one (I busk) but its insanely long - the lyrics don't repeat, and they don't make any sense.

My most profitable song is "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol. Also, "Empty Apartment," by Yellowcard, and, of course, "Hotel California" (by the Eagles, if you've been under a rock for the past half-century).
