oh wow, i have almost every song listed in this thread. It's funny even though im halfway accross the world from most of you that music tastes remain constant

i have a great collection of audiophile type demo discs and ive snapped a quick pic of the ones that are not in the car right now and most of these are what i basically use to tune and also demo the car

BEST SONG for showing off/demoing Car Stereo-discs.jpg

listing the discs ive pictured here (from left to right in each row)

1) the eagles - hell freezes over (has the live acoustic version of Hotel California)
2) Mission impossible - original soundtrack (german pressing)
3) Chesky - ultimate demonstration disc
4) sheffield/coustic setup test disc
5) Iasca disc (one of the many that i have - this one is from 1990)
6) telarc sampler
7) Alan Parsons - sound check - engineering disc
8) sheffield drive
9) Dave Grusin - a sheffield recording which has the most width you will ever experience in a car sound demo, it actually sounds like the recording way extends past the boundraries of the vehicle with this one

i love music and as i have said i have many many more demo discs and music on my computer and a lot of it is all collectors items and import recordings and bsides for demo i even enjoy listening to all types of music while im driving or even sitting at home and listening to my music through my home entertainment setup

Default My contribution !

Some of the good songs you can listen to to check out your system

Dance
Sa Trincha - Sa Trincha
Switch - Eric Prydz
Pjanoo - Eric PRydz

Hip Hop
Riders on the storm - Snoop Dogg

Jazz / Saxophone
smooth Operator - Sade

Retro
She's Fresh - Kool & the Gang

These are like my favorites and I use them to test the bass, mid and also you could make settings on your equalizers based on these... if you dont have them.. get them... they are definitely worth it !!

Got to mention a CD I have - I'll let the contents of the CD explain why I think this is a great CD to test and tune any audio system ... moreso in the closed confines of a car ...

CD Name: Super Sound Check 3
1. The Super Sound of Beautiful Blue Danube (River water running, Large crowd outdoor, Launching of Missile, Opening of Bottles, Pigs running in Open)
2. Santorini (Thunder Clap, Electricity, Hi volt, Electricity Sparks)
3. 007 James Bond Theme (.38 Colt Police service revolver, Glass breaking and smashing on floor, Wind howling, Human voice screaming, Automotive headlight glass breaking)
4. Star Wars Theme (Robot countdown, Launch procedure, Spaceship landing and takeoff, Left to right flypast)
5. 1812 Overture (Military Canon - Orders and fire, Large blast, Military firearms, Automatic blasts, 105mm Artillery shell exploding, Distant rumbles)
6. Apache - guitar (Horses neighing - grunting - squealing, Galloping of Horses on hard surface, Chicken chucking, Rifle loading - firing - ejecting shells)
7. Superman Theme (Monster roaring, Space laser, Space ship passing by, Galactic gunshots, Waves)
8. Theme from Shao Lin Master (Lion Dance, Chinese Martial Art)
9. Medley: 2001/Raiders of the Lost Ark/Batman/Back to the Future (Lion roaring, Bird calls, Earthquakes, Whistling, Train passing by, Heavy Rain on lake)
10. X-Files Theme (Thunder and Rain)
11. Percussion Theme (African Drums, Timbales, Tambourine, Whistle, Hand cymbals, Chimes, Congos, Bongos, Toms, Cymbals, Triangles, Cabasa etc.

Lacks voice but effective ...

This was a collection created and sold by a local store in Singapore that I picked up more than 10 years ago. Am not sure it is available commercially or on the Net for download. Did search on the Net briefly, came up with a blank.

There's this number called 'Marudhaani' from the Tamil movie 'Sakkarakatti' by A.R.Rehman.
The song's a masterpiece, I tell you.
