Paper Planes by M.I.A.
Amazing layering- how is that for a SQ and SPL (simultaneous) test!

Tip to all folks- feel free to test drive any of the songs mentioned here in Youtube- great to listen first before you go ahead and buy/download stuff!

Great thread!
Here are a few tracks that I found pretty good not just for Sound off but for tuning the system as well. Bit long but I hope its useful!

Seven Lives (Enigma) - nice track to test the mids and sound-stage
Hole in the Sky (Karsh Kale) - Low, mid and tabla all in one, a good track to test a 3 way system
Hotel California Live Version (Eagles)
Angel (Massive Attack)
Swamp Thing (The Grid) - great track for setting the gains on the front components
The Thrill is Gone (B.B.King)
Iguazu (Gustavo Santaolalla) - some great guitaring to test the mid range
Breathing Light (Nitin Sawhney) - great music, great sound-stage
Last Train to Midnight (Nitin Sawhney) - good low bass and sound-stage
Spark (Nitin Sawhney) - nice track to check low end extension
Wherever I May Roam (Live) (Symphony and Metallica)
A Thousand Years (Sting) - soft low bass
Mimi's Song (Idan Raichel) - another track to check low bass extension
Shuvi El Beyti (Idan Raichel) - nice mix of low bass, guitar, flute and so many other instruments

Ah Ni Kudie (Dr. Zeus) - Fantastic Dhol and Low bass
Nahi Tere Jeha Hor Disda (Javed Bashir and Rishi Rich) - This track brings out all kinds of rattling noise (atleast from my car), nice way to find out which parts to concentrate while damping.
G.T.Road (Punjabi MC) - Comes in handy for the absolute bass addicts
Chardi Jawani, Pukka Tingz, Yaar Noo Manaa (Tigerstyle) - More bass!

Aankh Micholi (Amit Trivedi / Dev D) - starts off with low deep bass, transcends to tight techno bass, well recorded
Chandni Raatein (Partners in Rhyme) - all time favorite track
Tu Hi Re (A.R. Rahman)
Dil Cheez (Bally Sagoo)
Palace of Love (The Dhol Foundation feat. Ustad Sultan Khan) - Great mid-bass and nice track to check the sound-stage
Javeda Zindagi (Mithoon /Anwar) - one of the best recorded Hindi tracks, starts with extremely low bass, great vocals, then a nice bass thump and when the tabla sets in, the goosebumps!

i dont know if its been mentioned before - but the 7 focal demonstration discs are absolutely terrific for most of the demo work as well as tuning - if your system sounds good with most of those - it will surely be stunning with almost every other good recording

How about some, ahem.. more traditional stuff? Such as hindustani classical vocal to bring out the bass, especially from the old masters such as Ustad Faiyyaz Khan and Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan? Maybe Deepali Nag and Begum Akhtar for the female angle?

Chesky Ultimate Demonstration disc. Has the obligatory bass test which everyone seems to think is the be all and end all of audio 'quality'. Also has various other recordings to test depth, resolution, midrange, etc.

Only drawback I can see is that these recordings are so good, that even my crappy 300 buck speakers sound amazing.
