Throwback Track: Fantasy - Mariah Carey

Speed: 103 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ’s Take: I was a couple years into puberty when this came out, and for me, it didn’t get much better than MC in her prime, in roller skates and jean shorts. Personally, I think you can compare her legacy to Ken Griffey Jr. - superstars in the 90s who could’ve added even more to their Hall of Fame resum├ęs, but ultimately fell victim to age and injuries in the 00s.

Anyway, if you’re a dj, remember that this was the biggest song in the country in late 1995. This matters because even if you’re playing for a college crowd that was born in the late 80s and early 90s, they will remember this song. And females (as well as some shameless dudes) will sing along to it, just like the little girl in Rush Hour. If you have key adjust on your decks, try mixing this with Nelly’s Ride Wit Me for some top 40 nostalgia.
