Music Monday: Reader Appreciation Week

by Scott Lydon

Happy Music Monday! You know, without every person who reads, comments, shares or visits our TurntableFM room, we wouldn't be here. That's why today we wanna say thank you. Yes, to you, loyal reader. We don't deserve a nice person like you. You're out of our league.

Fitz & The Tantrums - Out Of My League


In some alternate world where radio was still super-important, this would be the smash hit we'd hear a million times from now until September. And every time it came on, we'd think of you. How did we rate such a great person like you on our itty bitty blog?

Today's your special day with Music Monday. See you after the jump for our continuing salute… to you.

As always, remember our Spotify playlist will be featuring a great selection from last week's Music Monday comments. The theme of the mix this time is Songs About God. Even pop stars can love a higher power. But before you start reminiscing, check out our current Music Monday, right now. Why? Because we gotta thank you properly.

Led Zeppelin - Thank You


We don't say it enough: you matter to us. Every comment, every page hit, every time you say HEY I AM OUT HERE NOTICING WHAT YOU DO. It matters to us, knowing you care. And we thank you for it.

Foo Fighters - My Hero


It doesn't matter that you're just normal people stopping in and goofing off. To us, you're the only thing between a positive performance review and living in a cardboard box on the street. We dance at your whim, sweet visitors. And that makes you a hero in our book.

Ike & Tina Turner - I've Been Loving You Too Long very slightly NSFW due to on stage banter


Each week, we try to put together a nice mix of the very highest quality. All the songs we most enjoy, and that we hope you enjoy as well. Why? Because you matter to us. That's why this song is here. Not for us. For YOU.

David Bowie - Within You


Face it, be you casual onlooker or devoted subscriber: without you, we're nothing. Thanks for being there for us, over and over and over again.

If you're not sufficiently thanked, hit our previously mentioned room for the regular Music Monday enjoyment. Also, let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use.
