What is the first song you play when you get new cans? - Page 3

post #31 of 83
I generally play anything I am currently listening to when I first get my headphones. I'll just enjoy the music first rather than doing some critical listening so early on.

I try quite a few songs.

Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
2112 - Rush
Moonchild - King Crimson
Children of the Sea - Black Sabbath

As well as a bunch of songs from the Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core soundtrack.

I'm not really looking for anything in particular, just seeing how my top-tier songs sound. :P

It Don't Hurt Anymore - Shamekia Copeland

I just listened to Shamekia Copeland. Thanks for posting her name. She has a pretty powerful voice, will have to get some of her stuff. I use Hell Freezes Over and Fourplay, Spyro Gyra and of course Unplugged by Eric Clapton.

Check out her album "Turn The Heat Up". Amazing voice.

Diana Krall - Temptation

Buena Vista Social Club - Chan Chan

Al Petteway - Shadow on the Marsh, from the sound track to a movie called "Mark Twain"

Something from Sarah Mclachlan's Mirror Ball album, to check sibilance. That album has a lot on Sarah's voice

Magdalena Kozena - Ah! mio cor - G.F. Handel

I can't believe this thread has grown to 3 pages and not a single person has mentioned Michael Jackson yet. Off The Wall and Thriller are (IMO) among some of the best sounding records of all time.

Also none of the following songs/albums are slouches:
Allen Toussaint - The Bright Mississippi
The Eagles Hell Freezers Over - Hotel California
Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven
Derek Trucks Band - Songlines
Cherry Poppin' Daddies Zoot Suit Riot and Ferosiously Stoned
Richard Andersson - The Ultimate Andersson Collection
Jack Johnson - Brushfire Fairytales

Give 'em a try if you haven't yet - you'll be glad you did.

Steely Dan - Aja
Miles Davis - So What
XTC - Senses Working Overtime, Jason and the Argonauts, My Bird Performs
Handl - Water Music Suite (Pinnock)
New Order - Regret
Doors - Break On Through
Caia - Remembrance
Baby Mammoth - And I'll See You
Madonna - Ray of Light
Melody Gardot - Baby I'm a Fool

I often try Dirty Diana - Michael Jackson and some heavy Metallica to test the low and upper mid and kinda how powerful electric guitar and drum and bass etc in hard and Heavy Rock can be reproduced.

Try Eric Clapton - Unplugged Album to test the sound stage and acoustic instrument as well as details.

Try B.B King to test male vocal and how emotionally electric guitar sounds.

Try Celine Dion and Mariah Carey (their old songs) to test female vocal.

Some nu-metal, alternative and other type of modern rock. Also some R&B and Hip-Hop

All are mainstream music. Yep I listen to mainstream and I am currently into Blues so much

PS: I'm new to Head-Fi and English is not my native language so I think it's safer for me not to use "head-fi's terms of sound"
