Try some songs by Joe Bonamassa a lot of his music has slide guitar and most of it is in E standard try Mumbling Word for an example. Also Jack White is known to use a fair bit of slide to can't think of the names of the songs off hand but just have a look on the net.

Seven Nation Army...

And Joe Bonamassa is good, if you don't mind tuning down a hell of a lot, or just playing it in standard tuning, the Ballad of John Henry, which is an awesome song, has a cool slide solo thing.

Just on what chadreed32 said - a lot of songs use open tunings for more effect. Don't be afraid to try these tunings because quite often you don't need to tune every string just say one or two. If you want the best slide songs go back all the way back to people like Robert Johnson, Son House, Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell and some of the other early blues.

Well, The Ballad of John Henry is is C standard I believe, so he could just play it in E if he doesn't care enough to tune.

Try tuning to Open G, its really fun and good for slide

DGDGBD, I believe.
