I Want You - Tiësto & Mike Williams

Speed: 126 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: If we're doing a power rankings of songs called I Want You, I'm putting it behind Marvin Gaye . But this one isn't bad; definitely something you can snap your fingers to. Stash it in the EDM playlist for your next electronic set. Try mixing with tracks like:

Perfect Strangers - Jonas Blue, JP Cooper

Speed: 118 bpm Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm The DJ's Take: If they ever do a reboot of the 80s sitcom Perfect Strangers , I nominate this as the new theme song. That said, this is doing well on Spotify, and has that bouncy, tropical sound the kids seem to be into these days. Worth a spot in a summer pop playlist. If you're around 115 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley , LIKE I WOULD - ZAYN , and Let's Dance - David Bowie . If you're closer to 120 bpm, try blending with Kill Em With Kindness - Selena Gomez , Sugar - Maroon 5 , and Love Somebody - Maroon 5 . Download or stream the song: Spotify Amazon

Throwback Thursday: Rockstar 101 - Rihanna

Speed: 70 bpm Recommended bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm The DJ’s Take:  Perfect theme music for college-aged females to take shots to. Maybe a little overdone, but it's pretty typical of the pop music from the late 2000s. Could sound pretty good with Pour It Up - Rihanna ,  Bandz a Make Her Dance - Juicy J  and Pop That - French Montana . Download or stream the song: Spotify Apple Music iTunes

Cool Girl - Tove Lo

Speed: 102 bpm Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Breezy, laidback, female-friendly vibe makes it worth a spot in the new music playlist. Nice little pop morsel for a pool party. If you're around 100 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:
