The BMC Top 5 for October 2011

LMFAO tracks are the bookends for this month's Top 5:

BMC Top 5 Singles for October 2011:

1. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

2. Don't Wanna Go Home - Jason Derulo

3. Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People

4. ET - Katy Perry ft. Kanye West

5. Sexy And I Know It - LMFAO

Top 5 BPMs for October 2011:

1. 125 bpm

2. 130 bpm

3. 100 bpm

4. 120 bpm

5. 140 bpm

Based on the feedback I'm getting, dance music in that 125 to 130 bpm range is still king. And why not; in a global recession, we all need some optimism & energy. Just don't forget to diversify from time to time. People like a little variety, and trends can change in the blink of an eye.

Got your own ideas about what should be in the Top 5? Leave a comment.
