ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: So Much In “Love”

All about "Love".

All about “Love”.

It is time for yet another trip back into the archives on Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my latest 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.

Given that today is Valentine’s Day, I had to do a special countdown for all of you readers out there, and so, we’ll be taking a look at a list of the top ten “love” titles to hit my survey since it began in 1999. Their chart run data has been weighed (since different eras reflect different turnover rates.) Enjoy!
