My original title for this thread was simply going to be 'Songs That Display the Biggest Range.' I then realised that this would probably lead to the thread being dominated by songs featuring whistles, so instead I've gone with this format. As the title says, I'm looking for songs that include both highs and lows that are impressive considering the voice type of the singer. E.g., if the singer is a contralto it should include notes below E3 and above E5, if they are a tenor it should include notes below A2 and above A4, if they're a bass... well, you get the idea. I'll start us off. This may sound like part of a soundtrack to an episode of Scrubs, but it's actually from Joey Tempest's 1997 solo album Azalea Place. Some nice humming in the middle gets us down to F#2, and we have some sustained falsetto around G5 at the end that lifts up to G♯5- pretty good for a bright-sounding tenor. All the same, I'm sure there's plenty of much better examples out there. Reply away.
For Cornell it has to be Beyond the Wheel. It goes from a D2 to an F5. While he could still go slightly higher than an F5 it is definitely an amazing show of his range. www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-yjee-RWkA

There's a great one for Laura Jane Grace, Black Me Out. Going from her lowest singing (to a B2) at the start, up to her highest belt in the second verse (C♯5). Along with that, there's tons of great G♯4s and B4s throughout.

One that comes to mind is "Gonna Get Close To You" by Queensryche, starts off with a dark low passage, bottoming at Eb2, and later on in the song some intense high belts, with Eb5, F5, and F#5 all in there.
Just For Me - Inez Andrews: the song starts in her lower vocals and just ramps up as she goes through her vocal register, was going to pick "lord don't move that mountain" but shes not using her lower register as much in that song although both have her throaty wail of a belt.
