Impossible Samples?

I want to know if there's if any samples from songs that are near impossible for mp3(LAME) to encode and has trouble encoding as i want to to test such a sample.

The Man Machine by Kraftwerk has plenty of tracks that LAME chokes greatly on, even at 320kbps CBR. Also the first half of the Electric Cafe / Techno Pop album is very easy to ABX at 320kbps.

IMO the near impossible samples would be Show Me Your Spine and EIG.

Samples can find here.
