Some notable turnover this month, including a brand new #1:
BMC Top 5 Singles for June 2011:
1. Don't Wanna Go Home - Jason Derulo
2. ET - Katy Perry ft. Kanye West
3. Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas
4. She Ain't You - Chris Brown
5. Look At Me Now - Chris Brown
Top 5 BPMs for June 2011:
1. 125 bpm
2. 100 bpm
3. 130 bpm
4. 120 bpm
5. 85 bpm
I cannot believe you guys (and girls) are so into that Jason Derulo track. Did you just read my review and decide to visit the page a lot to spite me? That's the only explanation I can come up with. Or maybe it's the whole Friday phenomenon (i.e. so bad you can't turn away).
Seriously though, it's good to see and hear that you're enjoying the blog and making good use of it. Any questions or ideas about music and dj'ing in general, send me an e-mail.
Got your own ideas about what should be in the Top 5? Leave a comment.

Speed: 130 bpm
The DJ's Take: Will this become a hit? To quote some of the texts I've gotten recently from people in Generation Y, "idk." Sure, there are some famous names on this track, but I'm not giving it a ringing endorsement. Regardless, the important point is that this fits right into the sweet mix we've been building up for awhile (see below) in terms of key and bpm. So download it, grab all the recommended singles too, and you'll have enough ammunition to take an hour-long nap at your next gig.
Turn on key adjust and mix with:
Backseat - New Boyz, Judas - Lady Gaga, Give Me Everything - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Afrojack, Till The World Ends - Britney Spears, Tonight (I'm Lovin You) - Enrique Iglesias, Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas, Hold It Against Me - Britney Spears, Beautiful - Akon, Break Your Heart - Taio Cruz, Cooler Than Me - Mike Posner, The Way You Move - Outkast, Pump Up The Jam - Technotronic, Sweet Dreams - Eurythmics, Baby Got Back - Sir Mix A Lot

Speed: 88 bpm
The DJ's Take: Currently climbing up the charts over the past few weeks, but I think it's kinda boring. Good thing I was in heavy traffic on the way home from work when this came on the radio the other day (so I could nod off with no consequences).
More interesting: this sounds a lot like Lloyd Banks' Karma from a few years back, right down to identical bpms. Turn on key adjust and throw in Cam'Ron's Hey Ma, and there's a little 3 song sampler spanning the millennium.
