Fight Song - Rachel Platten

Speed: 88 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: I do not watch the WNBA, but this could be a pretty good theme song for the playoffs (or for just about any other televised women's sport). Good mashup potential with We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift. Not A Bad Thing and I Need A Girl could also work around 86 bpm.

If you're at around 90 bpm and feel like changing the mood a little without switching key, try mixing with tracks like YOUTH - Troye Sivan, 0 to 100 - Drake, Bailando - Enrique Iglesias, Partition - Beyoncé, and Killing Me Softly - Fugees.
