it is all personal (depends on your ears as well as type of music you like to listen to), BUT... there are several "websites" that provide like a top 10 songs to dial in your system by ear (not bike related!!!).
1 list I found 2 years ago (cannot find it anymore!) had Hotel California as well as 2 songs, sorry, of the black eye Peas and 1 from Radiohead (for "ultra" lows).

this one I just found: http://portable-speakers-review.topt...-speakers.html

I listen to a lot of music that has a ton of bass. If I used Hotel California I'd blow my speakers when the bass hit.

Love me some Big Pun....I'm not a player, I just crush a lot
Tupac California is another one I like.

Hmm I may need to revisit my tune with that list.
I originally used bawitdaba, just lose it, a Mashup called the day the music died and bird machine. Never thought about some of those songs in the list above.

Having worked in the concert business for 16 years, I have never heard anyone use any of those songs to tune any speakers. That list is horrible. Maybe it's different for smaller speakers, but I wouldn't say any of those suggestions are good at all. I have hears Norah Jones - Don't Know Why used a lot. Just throwing that out there.

I would think the best would be classical or jazz, as the music is usually recorded flat without any coloration.

Damn that's an old thread!!!! Tune to what u listen to bro. If ur goal is hip hop parking lot competition ur building and tuning to that. If ur putting around town or up and down the strand/boardwalk listening to loud rock, build and tune to that. If ur a touring dude that plugs 2000 sounds in and rolls, u better build and tune to a wide range.
