Misery - Gwen Stefani



Speed: 95 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm, 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: If we're ranking pop songs named 'Misery' in a similar key performed by judges from The Voice, I'll give Adam Levine the edge; a little more energy and juice. But this one is certainly spinnable in the new music portion of a set, and it's getting some love on iTunes. Now we'll just wait for someone to do a mashup with Company - Justin Bieber and call it 'Misery Loves Company.'

If you're at around 90 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:

YOUTH - Troye Sivan
0 To 100 - Drake
Bailando - Enrique Iglesias
Partition - Beyoncé
Killing Me Softly - Fugees

If you're working in the 95 bpm range, consider going with:

Show Me - Kid Ink
Partition - Beyoncé
Animals - Maroon 5
Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep
You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa

And at around 100 bpm, I'd try with:

BeFoUr - ZAYN
Team - Iggy Azalea
Don't Need Nobody - Ellie Goulding
This Summer's Gonna Hurt... - Maroon 5
Sledgehammer - Fifth Harmony
L.A. Love (La La) - Fergie
Turn Down For What - DJ Snake and Lil Jon
