Testing sound system play list

Over the years for both buying car sterio, home hifi, home theatre and most recently comercial systems for dance studios i have always listened to specific bits of music to put the system through their paces.

I thought i would update my play list a bit as next week i am going to have the opotunity to hear a members car. Please find a list of tracks that work for my ears.

Bruno Mars: locked out of heaven (Bright song high mids and tops)
Eagles: Hotel California (Hell Freezes over) (The bongos kicking in)
Lamb: B Line (Sub Bass from the double bass)
No Doubt; Different people (Incredible bass line that highlights slow responce)
Muse: Knights of Cydonia (highlights lack of clarity)
Muse: Hysteria (Can sound very brightt)
Phil Collins: In the air tonight (Thats druns solo)
Tenacious D: Tribute (I like it)
Dire Straits (Brilliantly produced Guitar into)
Guns and Roses: November Rain (Very complete song needs to be played loud)
Guns and Roses; You could be mine (Louder still for this one)
Hoobastank: The Reason (Good seperation of high's mids and lows)

What would you have in your system test play list. All the above are cracking tracks. If you have not heard them check them out and have a listen.
