I just heard this question on the Radio, I can't think of one, I can think of albums, so I thought I would ask the masses!

What would your first choice of a song be to try out your shiny new stereo; and the neighbours are out..

I ended up with: Iron Maiden - Run to the hills..

Cheers,

Elgar Cello Sonata played by Jacqueline du Pré

or

AC:DC Highway to Hell

OT, if you like rock and have an awesome sound system hooked up to your tv then the TV show Supernatural is great.

4:33 by John Cage.

If you hear anything send the stereo back as faulty.

Oh, for me, that's so impossible to answer as my favoutite changes with my mood, so it would be chosen at the time i'd be listening.

Right now, i'd choose Money, by Pink Floyd.

Higher by Creed - shatters me to my foundation then lifts me up again to do it all over. The grunge reminds me of where I've been, the soulful lyrics express who I am becoming. Great meditation song and music!

Hi all,

Dire Straits' Money for Nothing. Great test of a new system.

Excellent choice.

I was expecting to get quite an eclectic mix of answers, but I think that by and large, we are all Rockers!

Wow, buckworks is getting all classical on us. In that case I change my answer(s) to The Lone Ranger Theme Song [youtube.com]. :)

"Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains.

I actually did this on a not-so-new stereo, while the neighbors were in: after many nights of the upstairs neighbor's little kids running back and forth on the hardwood floors at 2:00 a.m. (when the family came home from their store), and our complaints to the neighbors doing nothing to stop it, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I turned the speakers to face the ceiling (including a pair in my exercise room, which was below the kids' room), turned the volume up to 10, turned on "Man in the Box," and enjoyed my sweet revenge.

Oh, did I mention it was 6:00 in the morning when I did this? :)

I always get a smile on my face when I hear it on the radio.

Oh, and the neighbors decided to move out 2 weeks later!

Hi all,

Lawman: That is a tune that is usually played in stores when they are about to close, or on a production line when there are orders to be met (and I can vouch for the latter!) and is just a damn good 'feel good' song!

Lifeinasia: Revenge is a dish best served cold; but glad that they moved, I have an occasional noisy neighbour. (just listened to this on youtube as I had forgotten what it was like; good choice!)

Faith no more: Epic is another I thought of, especially as it was on my stereo on the way home tonight!

Thank you for all the ideas though... I wonder what tomorrow's question is?

Cheers,

Depends on my mood... either Korn or Living Legends. any song on any album.

Slow down hot rod....

I'm country to the bone. I'd blast that new Jason Aldean "My kinda party" and to hell with the neighbors.

Oh wait a minute.. I already am....

If theme music is allowed (I know it's the William Tell Overture) then I trump your Rossini with Poledouris - Conan the Barbarian. Assuming that we are talking about a real stereo rather than some pumped up mp3 player, that will test the build quality.

Starship Trooper - by yes
Sheep - by floyd

The last parts of these will put the bass range through its paces.

What to play for the first time on the new stereo is of course a decision that should not be made lightly. After all you can play the first song on a new stereo only once. Cause after that it would already be the second song.

I think I'd play a Mozart aria, turn the volume to maximum and see if I could shatter some windows.

From The Magic Flute, "The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart":
[youtube.com...]

This is included on the Voyager Golden Record sent into space by NASA on the Voyager 1 & 2 spacecraft in case it should meet intelligent life.

(Don't try to sing this yourself it will rip your vocal cords appart)

@Kaled: Assuming that we are talking about a real stereo rather than some pumped up mp3 player

Of course this applies only to a new proper stereo and not an mp3 with external speakers!

>>I'd blast that new Jason Aldean "My kinda party" and to hell with the neighbors.

I'd hope that your in a detached property!

Metallica - one is my last offering

Thank you all for your thoughts on this one.

"Out in the Woods" from Leon Russell's Album "Carney"

One of the few tracks that actually uses the stereo effect.
