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.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now. Some other key- and bpm-compatible music: Ahora - J Balvin Se Preparó - Ozuna Kill Jay-Z - Jay-Z Can I Get A - Jay-Z  Miss Independent - Ne-Yo Umbrella - Rihanna Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes Mind - Skrillex & Diplo Chandelier - Sia Burn - Ellie Goulding download or stream Stay: amazon DJ Cheat Sheet playlist
