Wide Awake - Katy Perry
Speed: 80 bpm
The DJ's Take: Apologies for not posting in awhile, and thanks to the readers who have been e-mailing their discontent. Good to know you care.
Anyway, this track is already in the Billboard Top 10, but is it something you play in the club? Depends. Much slower tempo obviously means it doesn't go with the usual 130 bpm dance singles that are your bread and butter right now. But it could work at the end of the night, maybe in a bar-pub setting. Somehow this feels more like a nice soundtrack for a young adult TV drama on the CW or a big screen romance starring Channing Tatum (or someone of that ilk).
