Throwback Track: Get Low - Lil Jon
Speed: 101 bpm
Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm
The DJ’s Take: Ok; I know that even though I’m labeling this a “throwback track,” it isn’t that old. But in today’s pop climate, with all the turnover on the charts (does anyone remember who Flo Rida is?), it’s ancient.
That said, it’s also a guaranteed TMD (Track of Mass Destruction). Simply put, you cannot go wrong with this song, and 93.2% of the time, you will bring the house down. I have spun this on a regular basis for clean-cut Caucasian crowds, and even they start singing, “To the windooooowwwws, to the wawwwsss...” Plus it has a nice, clean break at the beginning, so you can mix it in pretty easily. Get the explicit version, but keep it under wraps if it’s a wedding or event where grandparents and kids are around. Unless you feel like seeing the 6 feet under face.
