On February 1, more than 30,000 tweeters shared the names of music and songs they liked in a tweet using the "#musicmonday" hashtag. The week's top songs recorded on twit40.com include longstanding chart-toppers by 30 Seconds to Mars, Lady Gaga, and Kings of Leon, plus singles by Taylor Swift, Maxwell, and Lady Antebellum.

Many of this week's selections seem to have been inspired by the Grammy Awards show that took place on Sunday night. Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me" climbed into fourth on this week's Music Monday chart the day after the country singer won four Grammys, including Album of the Year - the biggest and final prize of the night.

Maxwell's "Pretty Wings" was another popular pick this week. The first single off the R&B singer's BLACKsummers'night album, the track won the Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, while the full album was named Best R&B Album.

Country vocal group Lady Antebellum took home a Grammy for Best Country Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals for "I Run to You." The group just released a new album, Need You Now, on January 26, and the title track from that album was a favorite Music Monday track.
