Not a Bad Thing - Justin Timberlake

Speed: 86 bpm The DJ's Take: Simply put, this is a rom com theme song. Will it be a big hit? My guess is no. But not a bad track to warm the crowd up (or cool them down around closing time). Try pairing up with Trey Songz' I Need A Girl - similar key, similar vibe. Download the song: Amazon: 

Wild Wild Love - Pitbull ft. G.R.L.

Speed: 120 bpm The DJ's Take: You think whoever produced this listened to the opening of Wake Me Up and decided 'Hmmm.... I kinda like that'? Anyway, if you're transitioning into the 125 to 130 bpm range, the aforementioned Avicii track would be a nice jump off point. If you're staying in the same bpm range, I'd double-time over White Walls - that would sound pretty good. Bottom line - I'd be surprised if this doesn't start climbing up the charts soon.

Rather Be - Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne

tempo: 121 bpm bpm range: 120  to  125 bpm The DJ's Take: A breezy pop song that skips along nicely with some 90s club elements sprinkled in. Plus, it's #1 on the Billboard UK Chart, and I don't see why it can't cross over to the States in time. If I hosted my own travel show on TV, this would be a pretty good opening theme. Try mixing with Poker Face - Lady Gaga , The Way I Are (feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.) - Timbaland and/or Forever - Chris Brown . And if you want to dial up to that 125 to 130 bpm pop range, Timber can help you stay key-compatible and boost the energy if things are slowing down. download or stream the song: amazon
