REWIND: A Boxing Day Box Set Of Year-End Top Tens

If you’re a fan of my weekly top 40 chart, Adam’s Top 40, and all of the year-end posts I’ve been writing over the past ten days or so, thanks for following along! If you missed any of the action from my Top 100 of 2013, you can look back through the archive. (Congrats to Passenger once again on this year’s #1, “Let Her Go”.) Back on Labor Day, I did a special top tens post of all the charts dated the Sunday before the holiday. So, in a similar vein, on this Boxing Day 2013, here are all the top tens from my tabulated year-end surveys from the past ten years, 2003-2012, presented in chronological order. Enjoy!
