Lemonade - Internet Money, Gunna, Don Toliver, NAV



tempo: 70 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

the dj's take: Song #3 in our chapter 56 mix (4:00):



Can't lie - that shade of green in the underwater scenes from the video gave me a flashback to the first time I got stoned in the early 2000s. Was lying in my bed, feeling like I was at the bottom of the ocean, staring up at the sky (i.e. the ceiling).

Five minutes felt like an hour. Called a more experienced friend on my Nokia cell phone, asking if this was normal. They assured me everything would be ok. Had to call in sick to a gig in downtown Boston that night, because my ability to beatmatch by ear was compromised. No regrets.

As for the song itself, I like it quite a bit. May do a video on my decision to mix this into Ginuwine's Pony. More interesting than you might think - stay tuned.

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace.

(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You - UB40

tempo: 86 bpm the dj's take: Song #11 in session 61 (21:15): And song #3 in Episode 14 (7:39): One of the more underrated party tracks of the past few decades? Possibly. #1 song in the country when I was in middle school; get the Blockbuster Awards version for the richer intro and mixability.
