Free Fallin'- Tom Petty

Hotel California- Eagles

I think it's fun to play songs you already know using a capo. It sounds different.

They said all the ones I was gonna say. All City and Colour really. Sam Malone is a good easy song.

Lots of Johnny Cash songs are capoed.

I play Snow (Hey Oh) by RHCP with my capo though I've seen John do it without in a few live videos.

To add to the list:

Oasis - Wonderwall (2nd fret)
Beatles - Norwegian Wood (2nd fret)
Beatles - Julia (2nd fret)
Beatles - Here Comes the Sun (7th fret)
James Blunt - You're Beautiful (7th fret)
Beatles - Piggies (5th or 6th fret, I believe)

There's a ton more great songs that require a capo, but I can't think of them all right now. Definatley check out some Beatles tunes though - they have a fair number requiring a capo.

James Blunt - You're Beautiful (7th fret)

I thought that was the 3rd fret but not entirely sure.

America by Razorlight is one used on the 7th fret.

Paul even used a capo a few times.

the Such Great Heights cover by Iron and Wine

did you know the major scale on a piano, starting at whatever note (lets say E). you just go straight up the white keys without hitting a black one. and you got the major scale.

John Wayne Gacy Jr. by Sufjan Stevens, and Float On by Modest Mouse are two good ones that I can think of off the top of my head.

Bother by Stone Sour Capo 6th

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds
