    Audio Showoff Music Suggestions

    I'm curious on this one. I'm looking for some really good dynamic music that I can use to show off my car stereo. I don't want country music, I won't play it on my system. I want something like 'The Eagles - Hotel California' or 'Nu Frequency - Why O Why (808 Mix)'. Something that will show the low ends and the highs. If you can't make any recomendations, what do you use to show off your system.

    Please, no Bass Killa my Nilla or M&M tracks.

    I'm looking for three categories:
    1. Dynamics and Placement - Full, even range sound with spatial placement when you close your eyes you can tell how far away the drumset is to the lead guitarist and lead singer. Not too often can you find good music in this range without dipping into classical or live recordings.

    2. Bass Dynamics - From the slower tonal booms to the fast beat african drums. I want some good music that will show off the response of quick hitting deep notes.

    3. Vocal Tone Dynamics - Mariah Carry is not a good example of supurb tonal quality... just harsh, look how high I can hit, tones. I want warm, rich, piano singer lady in red quality. Big band is okay, but too much brass if you ask me.

    Please give me details on the artist and song if you respond. If it's a remix, who did the remix and who the original artist was.

    I like ska when testing this stuff. Smash Mouth's Fush Yu Mang. I don't know if it's recorded that way but it sure sounds it to me.

    vocals are strong and central
    drums 'sound' about 5-10' behind vocals
    main guitar on one side, secondary guitar and bass on other
    horns out outmost

    plus, that's just good music.


    edit: Reel Big Fish is good too, probably better locations than SM

    Dave Matthews Band - Grey Street, Ants Marching. Really anything. All along the watchtower.

    Try to get their live stuff too.

    I think they are awesome because they have drums, sax, violin, keyboard, couple guitars, bass guitar. I mean you cant say they dont have highs and lows. Check them out.
