Adam’s Top 100 of 2013: 100-81

They're here...

They’re here…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… no, forget about Christmas, it’s time for another Top 100 of the year based on my personal charts for the 2013 chart year! It’s everything from the year that was, from “Crazy All My Life” to “I Want Crazy” to “Keep Me Crazy”. We had passengers, pits and punks all rank among the top 40 this year, as well as dolls, dragons and more. We travelled to “Pompeii” and “St. Croix”, and now we’re on our way to the “Best Song Ever” on the “Best Day Of My Life”. It could very well be the “Best I Ever Had”. Alright, enough of my yapping, now.

Peak positions listed are as of the last chart included in the year dated November 24, 2013. Those marked with a plus had not yet reached their highest position as of that date. Ties in points were broken based on peak, number of weeks at peak and number of weeks in the top 40.

With all that in mind, let’s start that countdown!
