Default Looking for songs...

I'm looking for songs that have interesting guitar picking throughout or in parts. I tend to like rock and alternative stuff, but I'm open to anything. An example is Dust in the Wind by Kansas, I like that one. I don't care how intricate or repetitive it is, anything helps.

King Crimson are famous for their intricate dual crosspicking.
An example:

The Strokes

Reptilia has an awesome riff in the chorus that's fun to play, not exactly finger-picking but still intricate and very cool sounding.

Cough Syrup by Young the Giant is probably one you've heard but still should be mentioned because it has an awesome picking intro.

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman is simple, yet beautiful.

Ed Sheeran's Tenrife Sea is good too.

I can probably think of 15 more easily if given the time.

Thanks. I'm learning guitar right now and we're working on picking. Any songs I haven't heard or thought of help.

Oh, you're looking for stuff a human could play?
No more King Crimson then.

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zeppelin is a great one.

Some of the ones I gave you are pretty difficult, but doable.

Unlike this. This isn't doable.

Default Also..

Hey, a completely different thing- I'm also looking for songs that are upbeat, make you want to dance you know... Some examples are Call Me Al by Paul Simon, Loco in Acapulco by The Four Tops, Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root, Small Town Boy by Bronski Beat, Queen Bee by Middle of the Road... They don't necessarily have to be happy either, just make you want to move.
