Raspberry Beret - Prince

tempo: 121 bpm

bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm

the dj's take: Probably my favorite Prince song. Maybe it's the violins - they add a little sentimentality to the pure joy of the beat. Handclaps are on point too. Biggest factor is the sentimental value though; as an x-ennial, watching the video on MTV blew my mind as a little kid. Definitely worth a spin on an 80s night.

Try mixing / mashing up with Heaven - Avicii.
