"Time" keeps flowing like a river...

“Time” keeps flowing like a river…

After a little time off, we’re back with another round of way back wonders on Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my new top 40 goes up for the week, I’ll be featuring a past countdown straight from chart files of Adam’s Top 40. They’re all here — the hit songs, the songs that flopped, and the songs that may be a little embarrassing to reflect on. Let’s take a trip back to that always awkward freshman year of college and revisit the top songs from this week in 2008…
