The Man - Aloe Blacc

Speed: 86 bpm The DJ's Take: I don't know if you'll be blasting this at the club, but it's doing well on the charts and getting a lot of play on ESPN and those Beats By Dre ads, right? Kind of reminds me of Live Your Life ; nice triumphant anthem that can potentially get people waving their hands in the air in a Top 40 bar setting. This could also go well with Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner , Send My Love - Adele , Live Your Life - Rihanna , Royals , American Oxygen - Rihanna and Paper Planes . And in case you're wondering where you've heard that hook before, yes - he's giving a big nod to Elton John . Download the song: Amazon:

Find You - Zedd ft. Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: How long do you think it'll be until we have our first EDMusical on Broadway? Whenever that is, I'd put this on the soundtrack. I kind of nod off when the spotlight is on the vocals, but there's a nice thump in the beat once everything gets going. This has future Top 40 potential, and you can mix it with some (or all) of the following: Thinking About You - Calvin Harris , Need U (100%) - Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E , I Need Your Love - Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding , Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj , Titanium - David Guetta and Sia , Turn Me On - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj , Where Have You Been - Rihanna , In The Dark - DEV , Don't Stop The Party - Black Eyed Peas , Take Over Control - Afrojack ft. Eva Simons , Shots - LMFAO , Where Them Girls At - David Guetta ft. Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj , Backseat - New Boyz , Judas - Lady Gaga , Give Me Everything - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Afrojack , Till The World Ends - Britney Spears , Tonight

Addicted To You - Avicii ft. Audra Mae

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: Short but sweet, and those vocals pack a punch. I read somewhere that this isn't coming out as a single until April, so it may be awhile before you can confidently spin for a Top 40 crowd. For now, consider using Addicted To You as a track that leads into bigger hits like Levels , Good Feeling , and Summertime Sadness . Download the song: Amazon:
