Some interesting developments - Party Rock Anthem actually went up one spot from last year (talk about staying power), our readers' favorite bpm's have actually gotten faster, and our top 5 artists experienced minimal shuffling, with the only notable change being Drake replacing Black Eyed Peas.

In any case, thanks to everyone out there for an exceptional 2012. Our readership continues to grow in a big way, and hopefully we'll have another banner year in 2013. Keep reading and supporting, and we'll keep the content coming.

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
