Armin Van Buuren
Blah Blah Blah

Nils Lofgren Band
Bass & Drum Intro

A couple of my favorites for spacial cues as well with great upfront bass/midbass. Blah Blah Blah feels large like you're outside at a festival and the Bass and Drug Intro feels intimate and cozy like you're in a bar or some other small venue.

Absolutely one of my favorite albums. My 'go-to' when doing a quick tune by ear.

Of course. But certain songs are particularly noticeable and awesome, especially when demoing to non-car audio people...

I think the script should be flipped on this thread. It should be "songs that are hard to get up front bass with". Theres plenty of songs that have that typical artificial kick drum that almost any system can make it seem like the bass is on the dash. Screw that. Show me a system that can play John Mayers Wildfire with the kick drum fully on the dash and thatll be impressive :)
