Try to stick with songs that include tabs or how-to style esque videos(gotta keep in mind not all can learn just by finger watching like us). This is primarily what you consider MUST-LEARN's aka the songs you could not be without. This is also a nice way to recognize those who are out there teaching these tunes we love and keeping them alive.

I'll start it off:

Over the Rainbow by IZ - tafkam1:

Henehene Kou `Aka - Dominator
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=340j4jgVPJI

Jammin by Bob Marley - COVEYWOOD
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLZcu9TM3cY

Is This Love by Bob Marley - guting
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wLKsEKXJY4

Guitara by Parokya Ni Edgar - Aldrine

Appreciate the link ricdoug, I searched the boards for song lists and such before I posted this but this one slipped right through. Will run though all these songs and post back here my favorites if any turn up with how-to vids or tabs.

I loves me some "Tonight You Belong To Me" and boozelele's tutorial rocks my world.

Rep points to Harold O. and my undying gratitude besides.

Props for having the respect to put Iz at the top.

Perhaps "Something" (the song title) by The Beatles?
