If billie joe showed up at your house with an acoustic guitar and offered to play one song what song would you choose? And why? (no just listing songs, you have to say why you've chosen it)

I am not. 

 

Take Back would be good as well, for obvious reasons.

I think She would sound really good slowed down and played acoustic. And it's one of my favorites. Waiting would be good too.

We've decided to reopen this on the condition that you have to say WHY you'd pick a particular song if you want to post. No replies that are just a song title allowed, you have to expand on why you've chosen it (I added this to the OP as well). Good? Then go ahead :)

I would probably pick Jesus of Suburbia, just because the real thing is so great and I can't even imagine how amazing the acoustic would sound after hearing Holiday acoustic on YouTube.

Cool thread. It'd be ridiculous to just pick one song but if I had to...maybe Viva La Gloria (little girl). I think it'd sound great acoustic but it'd definitely be a challenge for Billie without the piano and whatnot.

I'd want to hear Give Me Novacaine. It's one of my overall favourite songs, and I think the solo would be really interesting just on acoustic, plus it's a song that would really lend itself well to a full acoustic performance. I can't see something like Babs' Uvula Who? working very well, somehow.
