Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) - Andy Grammer

Speed: 120 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm, 120 to 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: Wasn't this lingering on the fringes at the bottom of the iTunes charts for awhile? Nice how appearances on Dancing With The Stars and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade can give you a bump into the Top 20; this guy's promotional team seems to know where to put him. And it makes sense; sounds a little like Honey, I'm Good in a different key. Worth a download for the new music file if you spin Top 40 in a casual bar.

Keywise, I think your best bet for a mashup is Fireball - Pitbull. But you can also try mixing with tracks like I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida ft. Robin Thicke and Verdine White, Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson, Motown Philly - Boyz II Men, Tik Tok - Ke$ha, Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars, I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen, and New Romantics - Taylor Swift.
