I don't have any songs to recommend you but do recommend you download and use power tabs. It's gr8 for writing stuff, you just tab in your song and it plays it to you, i've found it priceless when writing. go to Power tab website to download the program.

Listen to Rush! Those guys swtich time signatures so smoothly that you can barely tell they are playing in odd metre. Look for Limelight, Driven, the Trees and YYZ. All good songs, all of which use crazy time switching.

And don't forget to practice. My band's got a song that uses 4/4, 5/4, and 6/4 all within the same song. I swear we practiced so much until we dreamed about time signatures.
new ones on the way
