They're in the rhythm arrangement of the song.

Easiest song of all
If you can import songs from RS1, just play Gobbledi**** from Sigur Rós, is not so popular but is the easiest of all. Only one string in all song.

arguably that Stevie wonder song, although the slide in the beginning and the fret hand mutes can screw you over a bit.
I find that Blitzkrieg pop and Black magic are a bit too fast for a beginner.
You've just committed blues sin!!!! Don't you ever forget Albert King again.

I didn't find either of those that easy. RU Mine Requires a lot of navigation up and down the neck and Brand New kind of blue has some pretty tricky single note picking.

As for me, I never touched a guitar before picking up RS2014 in early January. These are the songs that I have made the most progress in:
97.7% "Next Girl" - The Black Keys (Lead). A lot of repeating phrases. Whole song is played on 3 strings, at 3 frets.
94.9% "Blitzkreig Bop" - The Ramones (Lead). 3 strings, 4 chords. Moves quick, though. Had to move away from this until my strumming/fretting improved.
94.5% "Go With the Flow" - Queens of the Stone Age (Rhythm). 3 strings, 4 chords once again. Also very quick, but with very little variation.
87.9% "Six AM Salvation" - Versus Them (Rhythm). Not all that easy, but I really enjoy the song, and have put a lot of work into it.
82% "Angela" - Jarvis Cocker (Lead). A lot of repetition on single notes. I could probably get this one in the high 90s if I worked at it for an hour.
81.7% "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - Rollong Stones (Lead). This one just seemed to click for me.
81.7% "A More Perfect Union" - Titus Andronicus (Rhythm). Another not too easy song that I've put a lot of work into.
As I look at that list, I realize that all but one of them are imports from the original Rocksmith. Maybe RS2014 simply has more difficult songs?
There are probably a few more that are easier, but I haven't made as much progress on, due to not playing them much.
If you have the original Rocksmith and the 2014 check out the rhythym path for David Bowie - Rebel Rebel, 3 chords, easy strum pattern, perfect beginner song.
I got to 105% playing "Next Girl" in only six times playing it through. Easiest song I've learned playing the game.
