Best Acoustic/Unplugged Songs
I hesitantly say "unplugged" because most unplugged shows now are plugged in, just using a more acoustic version of the song.



So here's my Top 3 Best Acoustic song performances of all-time.



Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World
-Though not actually a Nirvana song, they still rocked the balls out of it. Plus Dave's turtleneck is just classic.







Seether - Truth
-Raw power in that man's voice.







Alice in Chains - Would?
-That bass can chop a palm tree down with its face it's so groovy.

I've listened to The Man Who Sold the World for HOURS.

This is my favourite:







I love the NIN cover by Cash, this gets me every time and shakes me to my core. So somberly beautiful.

I wouldn't say these are the best 3, but they are some of my favorites

Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven

A sad song from a sad tragic event. So raw with emotion I always nearly cry listening to it.





George Harrison - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
This cover is done by Jake Shimabukuro. Oh the things you can do on a ukelele.





Bobby McFerrin - Drive
Does it count as acoustic/unplugged if there are no instruments?

If we're going Ukulele, I'd have to include the big man.

RE: Best Acoustic/Unplugged Songs
I fear this will appear cliche since some feel the band has been over-rated since the early 90's, but I remember the first time I saw Pearl Jam's unplugged concert on MTV. Everything changed for me musically when I caught the raw emotion in Eddie's voice and on his face at the end of this song...





Can't resist this one either...I judged every other song they came out using the bar of Eddie's emotion in this one:
