So I'm planning to play an open mic night on Thursdays at this coffee place my friend works at. And eventually at this bar on sundays.. so anyone have some song recommendations to play? The coffee place is full of girls..probably wanting to listen to pretty acoustic stuff like john johnson or the goo goo dolls. Maybe also would appreciate some beatles or other great guitarwork. I'm not really a pro at guitar so probably like to play more "simpler" stuff. Here's some songs I've learned thus far to play:

1- untitled 01 - brand new
2 - jumper - third eye blind
3 - save yourself - sense field
4 - good riddance - green day
5 - sometimes jacks rule the realm - 311
6 - play crack the sky - brand new
7 - hear you me - jimmy eat world
8 - hurt - johnny cash (nin cover)

and working on

here comes the sun - beatles
your hand in mine - explosions in the sky
norwegian wood - beatles
hallelujah - jeff buckley
wonderwall - oasis
age six racer - dashboard confessional

anything else the babes would swoon over?

I like Always Be better than Hear You Me by JEW, but Jumper is a great pick for this. Good luck and have fun!

I was in Starbucks one day and they were playing "Cannonball" by Damien Rice on the speakers and it was quite heavenly, listening to that song while sipping an iced cafe latte.

Yesss, Damien Rice is definitely a good choice. Anything by him would work. A lot of Elliott Smith's material suits a coffee house environment too.
Also:
Bright Eyes - The First Day Of My Life
Dashboard Confessional - Hands Down
Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Yeah guy. Girls are genetically predisposed to like shitty remnants of '90s pop radio and awful surf-acoustic drivel. I mean, it's a fair assumption, right? Each and every time I cross paths with a member of the opposite sex at a coffee shop, I immediately think "she'd lose her panties if I played a Third Eye Blind song acoustically."

Something by the Beatles and While My Guitar Gently Weeps are pretty simple songs and fun to play
