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.

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
