I am doing an 80 "revival" on Saturday- need some song suggestions to do Acoustic versions

Got in all the Hits- all the cheese and all the hair metal I can think of.... Spandau, Wham, Rick Astley, Duran Duran, Madonna, Poison, KISS, Whitesnake, more Bon Jovi than you can shake a stike at, Europe, Kylie - there is an awful lot to choose from but alot is awful- got about 100 tracks to slim down could always do with more :-)

Done a suggestions box of Facebook and Twitter (@andymackguitar) always want more in my repertoire- Friday all day practice :-)

So please make your suggestions and if there is a you tube link to an acoustic version of an 80s classic feel free to post

Check out Peter Last (An Aussie Guy) on youtube... he does a few 80's songs that you wouldnt immediatly think of doing.. (But then again, knowing you !?!?!?!?)

Take you a while to go thru his stuff as alot of vids are duplicated with better versions and a few tutorials too..
