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, and 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, and 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, and Turn Down For What - DJ Snake and Lil Jon.
