The BMC Top 5 for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10

Week #2 of October 2010 is done, and I can sense a gradual shift in the balance of power on these charts:

BMC Top 5 Singles for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10:

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

2. Like a G6 - Far East Movement

3. Right Above It - Lil Wayne

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

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

Top 5 BPMs for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10:

1. 125 bpm

2. 120 bpm

3. 115 bpm

4. 100 bpm

5. 130 bpm

On the surface, the charts don’t look that different. But this week, the impossible almost happened - Love The Way You Lie nearly fell to #2. It’s been the most popular song on this site by a wide margin on a weekly basis, and Like A G6 was very close to taking the #1 spot. So does it mean the end of Rihanna’s reign at the top? Stay tuned.

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

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 .
