Vampire Knight and Amatsuki are very obviously shojo. And Gokusen is josei.

Being shonen, shojo, seinen or josei doesn't depend on the plotline or genre, but on the magazine the manga is published in. However, you can still tell its target audience most of the time by reading it.

Shonen manga I like are: Death Note, Spiral: the Bonds of Reasoning, the Record of a Fallen Vampire, Zombie Loan, Crimson-Shell, Pandora Hearts, A Lollypop or A Bullet, Diabolo (a nice one, by the author of Bitter Virgin), Worldend Fairytale, Code Breaker.

I don't usually like shojo except most Yuki Kaori's works (Like Earl Cain, Kaine, Boys Next Door, Ludwig Revolution, Camelot Garden, etc). I do like Nana, Kamui, Trinity Blood, Psychic Detective Yakumo, A Ticket to Heaven and Night Exile (by the author of Petshop of Horrors).

Number, Tactics, Monochrome Factor and Mother Keeper may look shonen but they are actually shojo. I guess they represent a new trend and subset of shojo manga (action/adventure/fantasy/science fiction with lots of bishonen and/or shonen-ai hints, or strong female characters). They are drawn more pretty but the storylines are more shonen-ish than early Clamp's works and Eight Clouds Rising.

Anyone who's looking for shojo manga with action, mystery and plot twists, instead of the romance/harem/school life types could try Takahashi Miyuki's works. She's a well respected author in Japan, though not very well-known outside it. Her art style is not very flowery.

Death Note (uh, only to a certain point?)
Full Metal Alchemist
Whistle
Eyeshield 21
Hikaru no Go

Not sure if these count under the shounen genre per say, but Berserk and Blade of the Immortal are amazing.
