Headphone Testing Songs

Got a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50's the other rday. Before these, rthe most I ever spent on a pair of headphones was r$50. These rwere $160. By far the best sound I've ever heard rfrom my music rshort of a concert. Here are the songs that I rused to experiment rwith. What songs do you guys use to test new rcans?
1Backstreet Boys
Hey, Mr. DJ (Keep Playin' This Song)

Ultra-processed music with very clear tracks.

Progressive trance with lots and lots of subtle nuances going on. Plus,
listening to the first 5 seconds with a good set of cans always sends
shivers up my spine.

Muddy, old punk rock with thick bass.
4Fair To Midland
Musical Chairs

Looking for sound diversity in a rock song. As many times as I've listened
to this song, it's never sounded this good.
All The Way Up To Heaven

Vocal harmonies, and trying to pinpoint individual tracks therein.
Midnight City

Bass vs. treble
7Notorious B.I.G.
Big Poppa

8Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
1812 Overture

Because there's no substitute for classical music when it comes to testing
an audio system.
9Scale the Summit
The Levitated

I wanted to hear every damn note.
10Sigur Ros
Untitled 1

Wanted to see how many minute distinctions I can pick up in an ambient
post-rock song.
