Default Best acoustic songs that no-one knows about?

Here is a challenge to all you acoustic lovers: what are the best acoustic songs that no-one but you know about? The kind of thing you throw into a conversation, after which everyone does that kind of scrunchy lip-thing as if to say, "no, no, only you know that one..."

I'll start.

1) 30 Odd Foot of Grunts - "Sail Those Same Oceans"
2) David Ford - "I Don't Care What You Call Me"
3) Robert Downey, jr - "Snakes"
4) Tabitha's Secret - "Dear Joan"

Go on, amuse me!

R.E.M. doing a mean cover of the Troggs with bassist Mike Mills on lead vocals, unplugged.

The Counting Crows acoustic version of "Anna Begins" is amazing



A few others I can think of that someone might like:

I actually like that album of theirs. A Murder of One is suuuuuuuch a good song.

I guess as the Muse person I've got to throw in one... they do a lot of good acoustic versions of their songs.



And some unknown band on YT doing a really good acoustic song (not very good quality, though):
