Let's Dance - David Bowie

Speed: 114 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm

The DJ's Take: Not to be too callous here, but the passing of a legend tends to do wonders for their record sales. Which means your crowd probably wouldn't mind hearing some of the hits for old time's sake. I got a lot of requests for Michael Jackson a few years back, and my guess is people are asking for David Bowie too. If you're a Top 40 dj, try mixing or mashing up with Downtown - Macklemore and see what happens.

On a side note, here's a cool turntable routine / tribute Skratch Bastid did with this. Worth a watch.
