Default What songs do you listen to to test soundstage?

I just recently got a pair of Samson SR850s and its basically been my entry into understanding what a 'wide soundstage' really meant. I'm thoroughly enjoying going back to songs I've burnt myself out upon and experiencing those new little nuances and that airiness that I had previously missed out upon.

Here are my top songs that I probably will be revisiting (with future headphone purchases) to 'test' this part of sound.

1)Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere But Not Here (Live)
Nuff said.

2)Solar Fields - Sombrero

The pronounced sustain, reverb effects and the "smearing" of the said effects towards different directions really enhance this otherwise simple song. Very much recommended for enjoying a rather yummy effect, especially on a good pair of headphones (not that mine are on the top end of the chain). Too bad the Samsons can't read the lowwww bass that the song demands towards the end of the song.

3)Storm Corrosion - Ljudet Innan
At the ~8min mark starts this hauntingly beautiful guitar solo with strings just infinitely going sideways and simply juicy light percussion. The second 'stanza' of this solo is just pure eargasm for me, soundstage wise. There's just so much air/space during that section! I never knew this already beautiful song could sound even better, just by getting some better phones D:

4)Massive Attack - Teardrop
Need I say more :P
5)Carbon Based Lifeforms - Photosynthesis
Pretty rad sound 'motion' from when the drums kick in.

It's sad that most people consider powerful bass as good sound- they really need to experience wide soundstage!

What's yours?
