I'd like to see what songs you all have that use both ears of your headphones to a good extent. By this I mean songs that either alternate volumes or have two different beats playing on each side of your headphones. Thanks to everyone who posts.

I've found that a lot of songs recorded pre-1970 will have differing audio levels for different instruments due to their positions relative to the mic, such as with Sinatra's earlier recordings, giving them 'oldie' vibes and making instruments distinct from each other, almost like you're there in some cases.

In terms of doing it on purpose, Pink Floyd made extensive use of such effects.
On The Run and the intro to Time (which come one after the other on 'Dark Side of the Moon') are probably my favourite examples, but I heavily suggest you check out the rest of their work.

You make a good distinction between the two different types of "stereo-friendly" recording styles, but I think OP was referring to the latter style, which implies that the song's producer plays with both speakers on purpose and in a creative way.

Pink Floyd and other post 1970 bands are great examples of this.

Here is another 70's classic: The Cars - Moving In Stereo (1978) . They just don't make music like this anymore with this level of detail, because the kids these days don't care about such detail in their music anymore.
