Music Review: The Time (Dirty Bit) - Black Eyed Peas

Speed: 128 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ’s Take: This is probably the first interesting dance song I’ve heard from the BEPs, and that includes all their previous hits. The synth (or whatever you call it) sounds like a motorcycle from an 80s video game revving up over and over again, which I like. The only thing that’s overly corny is the Dirty Dancing chorus. Rhyming is dumb too, but it’s not like they’re a rap group anymore, so don’t worry about it. Certainly worth a spin if you’re choosing the music at a top 40-themed college party.
