Can you use any track from any artist to demo equipment?

Had someone around my house who remarked on my speakers setup, so I switched it on to show them.

Now my sort of go to tracks for initial demo of speakers / headphones / whatever would be something like from Céline Dion, or Enya. Warm and rich bass that envelopes the listener with either dynamic vocals that pierce through or ethereal voices that hang in the air.

They asked for Freddy Mercury instead. Frankly, I thought it sounded dog 💩, the subwoofer was barely engaged at all and I thought any mediocre speaker could have done that job of portraying lacklustre vocals, like my Amazon Echo Dot.

They seemed to like it. Though I remain unsure what they got out of my setup for it.

I pick tracks I know very well and have heard many times and on different setups.

If I pick something more particular like Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, I'm listening for a specific thing.
