Im in a bit of bind here...

im a junior in highschool and last year for fine arts i played an acoustic version of "i will follow you into the dark" for it and no one really knew i could play the guitar and sing well so it was a real shock and i really surprised alot of people and people loved it now this year i totally have no idea what to play becuase people will be expecting something great and i dont have a good acoustic song to play

I thought of something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7AmYGvUEKE but i cant figure out how to play anything but the beginning

If anyone has a ny requests with ben gibbard like songs or other songs i should try and learn please help...thanks in advance

do some Dylan. always good. or be really daring and do 'Desolation Row', just to see how patient people are.
no seriously he has a couple of nice acoustic songs. my favorite is 'Dignity'. isnt too hard either

I'm sorry, I'm biased but, Glen Hansard. People love covers I do of his songs more than any of my other covers. He can play anything solo and captivate people, and If you have the passion you can pull it off too, you can keep peoples interests, and you can turn people onto his stuff.

My Recommendations are as follows for singing and playing:

Fake Plastic Trees-Radiohead http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKd06s1LNik
High and Dry-Radiohead http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BciOfJsqh7M&feature=SeriesPlayList&p=C16A35066AACBF2D (depending on what country you live in that might not work; apparently EMI doesn't want us Americans to watch the non-US version of the video)
If You've got a strong voice for high notes....Unintended-Muse http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaVPAKuZMbw
When You Were Young-The Killers (There's a tab for the chords on UG, just use that and sing along)

Yes, I've got lots of links too.
