I guess we are ranking the songs and not only the intros because the list title says "Best Songs with Acoustic Guitar Intros" and not "Songs with the Best Acoustic Guitar Intros". In many cases both the song and intro are great but not always. - Metal_Treasure

@Metal_Treasure, the original title of the list was "Best Acoustic Guitar Intros". - zxm
