The BMC Top 5 for August 2010




















Ever since I started this blog, I’ve posted lists of top pop songs based on my own feelings and observations. But I always wrote them knowing that the perspective of one man is limited. Fortunately, the traffic on this site has picked up over the past few months, so from now on, I’ll be posting the Beat Match City Top 5 every week and every month based on what readers are reading the most.

Long story short, be sure to visit this site every 8th, 15th and 22nd of each month for the top 5 from the previous week. And if you want a longer term view of what’s hot on the charts, visit this site the first day of every month for the top 5 from the previous month.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the BMC Top 5 for August 2010. Click on the track name for analysis and MP3s:

1. Love the Way You Lie - Eminem ft. Rihanna

2. Airplanes - B.o.B ft. Hayley Williams

3. Magic - B.o.B ft. Rivers Cuomo

4. Dynamite - Taio Cruz

5. Club Can’t Handle Me - David Guetta and Flo Rida

So there you have it. Keep visiting the site, and keep giving us your feedback so we can make the Top 5 bigger and better.

Do you agree with this list? Got your own ideas about what should be in the Top 5? Leave a comment.

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace. Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm: Classic - The Knocks ft. Powers Too Close - Next Levitating - Dua Lipa ft. DaBaby I.F.L.Y. - Bazzi Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay Paris - The Chainsmokers Kids - OneRepublic I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction Cheyenne - Jason Derulo Midnight City - M83 Cake - Flo Rida & 99 Percent LoveGame - Lady Gaga Breathe Deeper - Tame Impala Madiba Riddim - Drake Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG

(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You - UB40

tempo: 86 bpm the dj's take: Song #11 in session 61 (21:15): And song #3 in Episode 14 (7:39): One of the more underrated party tracks of the past few decades? Possibly. #1 song in the country when I was in middle school; get the Blockbuster Awards version for the richer intro and mixability.
