^I like that last section a lot. ;)



Check this out:

^This means "Mess of Me" is the fasting "building" song on Alternative radio right now. I say that all credit goes to all of you Footsoldiers who have been working hard to promote this song! Great job, but we need to keep it up!



Let's keep up the voting and requesting, guys! The year is coming to an end, and if we can help Switchfoot finish strong at radio, it will put them a few steps ahead of the competition as we approach 2010! We're doing a great job and, as you can tell above, we are really making a difference!

And you all read their email. They are asking YOU to help! Let's do this!
