Me and my friend usually grab our acoustics and record songs we make on the spot.
Sure, the lyrics are generally pretty stupid, but it's all good fun.

One of the songs we made went for 22 minutes...

Give it a try, just play a chord progression or something and sing about whatever comes to mind.

I'm not sure if you classify this as cliché or pop, but Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson is really nice to strum along to and sing.

Anything Nirvana really has worked for me. I'm awful at singing and playing but also can do some Metallica and Megadeth. It's mostly knowing the song and less speed, though it helps Dave Mustaine tended to sing in beat with the guitar Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty is another one to try as well.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I'd say try Paranoid, by Black Sabbath. Super duper easy to sing and play at the same time. Oh, and Iron Man

I don't know why, but I always have a problem playing F chords, so I think that is one of my problems. Oh well, practice makes perfect!

Also, I can play Twist and Shout, but can't sing it too. I'm not very good a singing yet, especially when playing.

Freebird is easy to sing and the chord progression is easy.

EDIT: In case you don't know (but you SHOULD know,) Freebird is a Lynyrd Skynyrd song.
#27
I suggest ACDC, they mostly use power chords only, are easy to play, and are easy to sing to as well (mostly screetching).
