Play some Erik Mongrain if you can manage it, like the song Percuien Fa.

Or maybe just some Incubus like Mexico.
Ibanez RG770DX Reissue

Ibanez Apex 2

Ibanez S520EX w/ EMGs

Marshall DSL100 Halfstack

Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley

People seem to love it.

But to be honest, I don't think I could do any song without crying if I were in that position.

For Beatles you should play either BLACKBIRD or SOMETHING.

Something would seem abit peverse with the lyrics if you were singing it to your gran in my eyes. Try an acoustic Eleanor Rigby.
