Monomania! What’s on Your Turntables?

mon·o·ma·ni·a  /ˌmänəˈmānēə/ -noun- Definition: exaggerated or obsessive enthusiasm for or preoccupation with one thing.

As music fans, we all have tunes that we love. We also have tunes that we obsess over — you know, the ones we listen to over and over again without growing tired.

Here at Rhythm Reload Magazine, we asked our staff to share the top five tunes they have spinning on their turntables each month. With a wide variety of contributors from around the country, we’ve found that no one has the same playlist. Join in the fun by listing your top five tracks in the comment section below!
