OK UG!! It's my friend's 18th birthday party this Friday night, and he has an acoustic guitar lying around gathering dust. So, I figured if my girlfriend isn't going to be there, I'm going to be bored, right? So I had the idea of doing a little party piece, because well, aside from booze, there won't be much to do.

Basically, any great, easy acoustic songs that everyone knows you could recommend me? I'm sure some of you guys have done this kind of thing before. I've my mind set on one song, but I want to do a 2nd. The 1st one I'm doing is Wonderwall, seeing as I can sing that and play that, so I'm looking for a similar(ish) kinda song that people can sing along to.

And if this is the wrong forum, just tell me and I'll copy+paste it into that forum and delete this one.
