The only song I can play through reliably....
As a wee lad I started taking guitar lessons in 1964.
After being taught to read music and learning some basic theory and scales and stuff...
my guitar teacher taught me "What I'd Say" by Ray Charles.
I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.
Simba Pa Ti by Santana
Some BB King blues song. It was decades ago and I disremember the title.
I think you mean "Last Date"
I've been featuring my own guitar version on stage for over 45 years. Love to play that one.
I'd love to hear your own "bizarre" version.
It's always interesting to hear someone else's take on something I also play.
Everything I've ever played was learned by ear; to this day.
I find it a lot quicker as well as more accurate than deciphering the sheet music or (often incorrect) tab.
The first songs I learned were the only songs my older sister's boyfriend knew since he was the only one around who could show me anything. He taught me Come As You Are by Nirvana and the main riff to Civil War by Guns N Roses. I played those for weeks. Then he showed me Knockin on Heaven's Door by GnR and Iron Man by Sabbath.
Shortly after that, I discovered tabs on the internet and it was off to the races learning all my favourite songs (mostly Metallica). The first song I could play all the way through was For Whom The Bell Tolls by Metallica.
Polythene Pam by The Beatles on my acoustic guitar. After that was Heavy Metal (Takin' a Ride) by Don Felder off the Heavy Metal soundtrack that had just come out at the time. Beat the one to death!

Grab only your guitar, nothing else.
Smashing Pumpkins - Zero
Metallica - Enter Sandman
First couple I learned on electric:
First one learned with my first "band":
This! Except switch Danzig with Seven Nation Army. Stuff you could do with a one string(low e) guitar and an ear.
JW - Rocky Mountain Way
oh yeah, just remembered...Satifaction
Don't laugh, but my uncle showed me how to play wildwood Flower by Mother Maybelle Carter. But not a easy song to play because it has a lot of open chords in it if you play it right.
Smoke on the water by Deep Purple on the low E. Just the main riff
It was my hope when starting this thread that some of our beginners might learn a few of these!
