I realized I don't know many songs from that period to play and sing on guitar, and you never know when you may have to play for older folks.

I can play:

Tiny Dancer
Brandy
Your Song
How Deep is your Love

What other songs would you add?

country gentlemen - matterhorn
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

A buncha Tom Waits songs.

So you're basically doing John Frusciante covers.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

The Beatles - Girl

It's a little bit before the 70s, but still a really good, easy song to know.

Yeah, they were a crazy bunch. My Dad dated the guitarist's sister back in the day. I've heard some stories, alright.

On topic, Cactus did some great stuff. Not too sure how well it would pan out for acoustic though.

Kinda pop and rock. Something that would make people say "Oh, I recognize that!".

Oh, I could also spit some Hendrix. Voodoo Child and Purple Haze on acoustic. It's 60s, but hey.

I'd hate to be "that" guy but you might as well throw in Stairway To Heaven.

I could list alot of songs, but just go on YouTube and search for 70s songs.

Allow me to weed out the disco, however, so you'll be left with songs that most people will recognize, if not chant along with.
For 70s:
The Eagles - Hotel California
Nazareth - Love Hurts
Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water
Deep Purple - Child In Time
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Stevie Wonder - Superstition
America - Horse With No Name
Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall (Pt. II)
Alice Cooper - Schools Out
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run
Fleetwood Mac - Go Your Own Way

For 80s:
The Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams
Mel & Kim - Respectable
The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
The Bangles - Walk Like An Egyptian
Anything by Queen, really.
Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA

And so on, so forth. When I tried to spit through the catalog, I found it best to just listen to a YouTube mix video in the background, until I heard something I'd like to play.
#25
Boston-Peace of Mind, More Than a Feeling
Electric Light Orchestra-Do Ya, Fire on High
Pink Floyd-Breathe, Hey You
The Police-Message in a Bottle
Please call me Rainer, was 16 and empty minded when I made my profile.

Sometimes I talk to myself too...but never on the internet.

If you wanna play to older people then shift your timeframe back 10 years and stick to 60s-70s. Much better music than 70s-80s.

If you're playing for an old folks home then you should definitely go with Rise Above by Black Flag.
