REWIND: Memorial Day Goes Musical On Adam’s Top 40

If you’re a fan of my weekly top 40 chart, Adam’s Top 40, and want to push rewind for the upcoming holiday weekend, then it’s time to jump into the Way Back Machine and go full speed into the archives of my personal survey statistics before I post this weekend’s update. It’s hard to believe that I created these lists so long ago; there’s a lot of great music, some memorable hits and quite a few tracks that have been lost along the way. I’m afraid that’s how things go sometimes. These are all those Memorial Day top tens from the past ten years, covering 2004 through 2013. Enjoy!
