Fingerpicking: some fun songs to learn/play?

Over the past half year or so I've pretty much switched to playing 85% fingerpicking songs on my acousytic because of how stupidly quickly I seem to lose picks. Also it's just more fun to play imo. I'm seeking new shit to learn since at this point I'm down to repeating a fairly select few songs over and over, which is nice because I get really good at those songs, but I could definitely use a bit of variety.

This is honestly one of the most fun-to-play songs I've ever learned so anything like this would be super welcome.
2Patterns in the Ivy II

A good bit simpler than Benighted, but still a fun one.
3Volcano Choir

I mean, this is basically a single riff repeated a bunch of times, but the riff is simultaneously cool-looking and entertaining to play.
5Explosions in the Sky
Your Hand in Mine

tbh I haven't quite mastered this one yet, the bridge is actually really fucking difficult to perfect
6The Tallest Man on Earth
Revelation Blues

Tallest Man fingerpicking songs are consistently dope. This one has a weirdass tuning which means that I play it less frequently, but it's awesome when I do.
7Leading Me Now

tbh the melody and the picking patterns on this one are really similar to Revelation Blues but basically without the gnarlyass tuning
Moving Mountains

A pretty easy one, but still fun to play.
The General

Not fingerpicking, but if you're an acoustic player of ~intermediate skill level then this shit is fucking required learning.
10Alexi Murdoch
All My Days

Again, this one is a bit easier but it's a classic melody
