When Doves Cry - Prince



tempo: 126 bpm

bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

the dj's take: If you spin 80s, there's no way you can leave this out of the rotation, right? An iconic song of the decade, and certainly worth breaking out from time to time in a pop or wedding set. And to think that it all revolves around a simple little 3 note keyboard / synth riff. Brings to mind a certain musical cat:



Obligatory Chappelle's Show shoutout:

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com
