I made a you tube video awhile back about The Best Acoustic Songs Ever, unfortunately you tube made me change the audio I had on it due to copyright stuff. So I thought I would cover it more in detail here so I won't have to worry about copyright problems. The first part of the list is mainly songs of recent history in no particular order, you do not have to like the list but comment and let me know what you think including suggestions for any more songs to add to make this the ultimate song list.
Your Call-by Secondhand Serenade
This first song is simple yet beautiful. You have to love those songs when the artist is speaking to the one they love. Plus the vocal harmonies John of SS does are just astounding if you listen closely enough. In my personal opinion I believe Secondhand Serenades first album was his best.

- Top Songs of 2010
Epic year in music So I am going to start with the first month of the year, weird right? The top songs of 2010 are based partially on the critics, mainstream success, and a little of my opinion. So first we...
Swing Life Away-Rise Against
This song has a mesmerizing intro with solid verse, all with just the acoustic guitar. The background vocals in the chorus makes this song all that much better. This song reminds me of fun easy going times that sound really appealing compared to today's times. This song is a lot different than most of Rise Against's other songs because they are a fairly heavy rock band. It is a short song, with cheerful uplifting lyrics.

Emily- From First To Last
This song has an amazing double guitar intro that made me want to learn it on guitar. This is probably the most amazing emo/alternative you will ever hear. I do not like songs that have no feeling but in this song you can feel the singers passion and urgency. It is one of the most played songs in my itunes and I don't get tired of it which is rare for me. So a nice acoustic song by a primarily hardcore rock band, it works great.
I Will Follow You Into the Dark- Death Cab For Cutie
This song has kind of a folk sound to it. It is a song about dying and love talking about "when heaven and hell decides that they both are satisfied." So when you add the vocals of Death Cab singer Benjamin Gibbard, you get a great deep song.
My Other List
Who I am Hates Who I've Been(Acoustic)- Relient K
The piano in this song is what makes it great to me plus it has got a great meaning to it. About the better person you are now hates who you have been and what you were doing. There is a rock version of this song that is also good if you want to check that out.
Three Cheers For Five Years(Acoustic)- Mayday Parade
Probably one of the better songs on this list. The piano in this one is really dynamic throughout the song. The blending of vocals by the two singers is perfect for this song, you will want to sing along when you are familiar with the song. The non-acoustic version of this song pretty much sucks but that is my opinion. "Miserable At Best" by Mayday Parade is also a good song you should check out.
Prettiest Paint- Paper Mache
This song is by a relatively unknown band that I love. Their meaningful lyrics are powerful. This song is not complicated but the singer sings with such passion you can't help but feel something. This video is not the best one of this song so just go to their purevolume page to hear it and last time I checked you can even download it. Couldn't find a video for this song, but enjoy the vaccine.
Don't Be So Hard- The Audition
Punk Goes Acoustic 2 is great album with lots of great songs by lots of great artists, isn't that great? Anyway, another song with dual guitars making catchy melody's. The singer has an interesting voice also. Not very familiar with The Audition but I know I love this song.
Dirty and Left Out- The Almost
This song is by the Almost, a band formed by UnderØath drummer Aaron Gillespie. Not sure whether UnderØath would play something this calm but Aaron pulls it off gracefully with his band. This is a humbling, honest song saying I have done wrong but it is okay because you have forgiveness with Jesus. This has a lot of different instrumental elements with guitar, piano, and tambourine.
Ever So Sweet- The Early November
The Early November is not together any more but they did come out with a few great songs such as this one on their Acoustic EP. It has a calm guitar build up then an outburst of a chorus that wakes you up. Simple yet powerful, that seems to be a theme with these songs.
Misguided Ghosts- Paramore
This is a fairly new song by Paramore that is acoustic unlike most of their songs which are great in their own right. There is actually no strumming on the guitars in this song, just beautiful picking patterns. You should check out their song "The Only Exception." It is also acoustic and is on their latest album.
Sleeper 1972(acoustic)- Manchester Orchestra
This is probably one of the most simple songs on this list but the singer Andy Hull is an amazingly talented guy that pulls this song of wonderfully. I don't know how you can listen to this song and not be moved, there is something special about this song I cannot describe.
Hey There Delilah- Plain White T's
I couldn't go this whole list and not put "Hey There Delilah" on it. Probably the most popular acoustic song in recent history. It is catchy, beautiful, and easy to sing as far as knowing the words. Personally, the Plain White T's do not have a lot of good songs but they hit the jackpot with this one.

Come As You Are- Nirvana
Nirvana had one of the greatest unplugged performance when they played in New York in 1993. "Come As You Are" was just one of the songs they played that night. There were no electric guitars or bass and it was not long before the band ended that they recorded this.
Here we have an acoustic version of the classic, popular and widely covered song Wonderwall. Even though this is a live version, it still sounds really good. It is a pretty simple song to play but sometimes simplicity is the best.
So that is my list, thank you for reading and listening. Once again if you think there is any modern acoustic song you think should be on the list, say so in the comments below. Hope you all liked the list.
