I was just wondering, what do you think are good busking songs?

Anything that people will recognise but not hate you for playing because every other busker in the world plays it.

Glen Hansard & Market Irglova - Say It To Me Now
+1 to that. Mind you, it's in a weird tuning so that may not be a possibility..
To second what most other people have said..
Wonderwall - Oasis
Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
Black - Pearl Jam
Mrs. Robinson - Simon and Garfunkel
Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - Jack Johnson
Upside Down - Jack Johnson
If I Had A Million Dollars - Barenaked Ladies
Drive - Incubus
I've Just Seen A Face - The Beatles
Flathead - The Fratellis
Love Song - Sky
Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind

Basically, stick to anything upbeat, happy and recognizable. Also, when you consider that the people that are more likely to give you money are older (i.e not young people/starving students), you're likely to be better off playing older songs such as Mrs. Robinson.
