Marry You - Bruno Mars

tempo: 72-73 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

the dj's take: Track #2 in Episode 34 (2:28):

Guessing this is in the rotation at 1 of 4 every weddings, whether it's the reception, the ceremony, the video, etc. I heard it for the first time watching a friend's proposal announcement on youtube. Might work on a pop night if the crowd has a sense of humor.

Miss You - Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer & Tory Lanez

tempo: 100 bpm

bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm, 100 to 105 bpm

the dj's take: The final song in version 31 (25:43):

Just when you thought we were gonna end it with 'thank u, next'... we sneak this one in. Kind of like finding a dollar bill in your sofa cushion.

On a side note, there's no doubt that 'thank u, next' and 'Miss You' are probably among the top 20 most texted phrases among teenaged girls in the US.

Keep Ya Head Up - Tupac

tempo: 86 bpm

bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

the dj's take: The leadoff song in 33XL:

Tried to use the filler words he says right after the chorus to set up the transition into Khalid's Location. Kind of fun to have them go 'And uhh... send me your location...' Sounds like what half the websites I visit are asking me these days:
