Hey. I have a variety of non-audiophiles that come to my place and I am trying to find songs that are (1) popular/readily recognizable AND (2) are well recorded. I find many great artists have crappy recordings. It seems like the more popular the song the higher the likelihood of a crappy recording. For example I bought an Adele record and it just sucks with respect to dynamics and soundstage. Totally compressed.
What I am hoping to get with this thread is a list of popular songs from all eras that most non audiophiles would immediately recognize AND demonstrate how a good audio set up can raise goose bumps.
Here are a couple of examples that I find bring goosebumps to my non-audiophile friends. I am hoping you can help me compile a list of songs like these.
Queen - Somebody to Love
Led Zeppelin - Going to California
