I am currently working on Everybody Hurts, by REM. It is a beautiful sounding song on acoustic, with the arpegiated (how do you spell that?!?) chords.

Nice list. Some of my favorites on an acoustic:

Kansas - Dust in the wind
The Beatles - Let it be
Bob Dylan - Knockin' on heaven's door
U2 - One
Scorpions - Holiday
Simon & Garfunkel - Scarborough Fair
Pink Floyd - We wish you were here

good riddance (time of your life) - Greenday

my immortal (acoustic verison) - Evanesence (there's some vid's of it on Youtube that show the guitar for the whole song too)

heaven (acoustic) - bryan adams (uses the much-neglected Dm chord :) )

Angels - Robbie williams (sounds good but hard to find a tab that is 100%)

She's only happy in the sun - Ben harper

Pete

ETD - Formerly "10141748 - Reincarnate"

Ah, the saddest of all chords.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps can be lovely on the acoustic--if you've heard Harrison's acoustic demo, for example.

Hendrix's Little Wing--even if you don't play it all fancy and just strum the chords it's still a beautiful song.

Try looking as well at some Christy Moore material - things like

Ride on
Back Home in Derry

and if you want a nice easy fingerpicking tune that sounds excellent on an acoustic - try Carrickfergus.

What did the guitarist do when he was told to turn on his amp?
He caressed it softly and told it that he loved it.
