Songbird does it for me but that's because it's a personal thing.

Jeff Buckley, "Lover You Should've Come Over," or his cover of "Hallelujiah." "Hallelujiah" is simple finger picking. "Lover You Should've Come Over" will give you a decent chord work out if you play it correctly.

Peter frampton- Baby I love your ways
Led Zepplin- Babe I'm going to leave you
Clapton- Wonderful tonight (if you can pull off all the bends and play it accoustic then you have it)

but do you know what works ever single time. Write your own song and sing it to a girl. I did that and my girlfriend almost started crying. That is always the way to go or at least with me it is.

always with me always with you by satriani
hollow years by dream theater
both are awesome and mega emotional if your a guitar whiz. plus no vocals needed on the satriani one.

EDIT: and just so can be the first in an inevitable occurence on these types of threads...
play "entrails ripped from a virgins c**t" by Cannibal corpse or "raped with a knife"

waits for more DM references...

hm.. a love song. well, if ya like singing and don't mind that james taylor is the biggest wuss ever: Handy Man by James Taylor. Another good one is a song by The Spill Canvas called Self Conclusion. amazing. There are a bunch of others, but those 2 should do the trick.

I've always loved the imagery of Simon and Garfunkel's For Emily Wherever I May Find Her.
