ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2015: #60-41

Pop 'til you drop.

Pop ’til you drop.

Here it is, the annual countdown of the top 100 hits based on my weekly personal charts from the first week of December in 2014 to the last week of November in 2015. It was another great year for both chart veterans and newcomers, novelty hits and timeless ballads, country, pop, rock, and everything in between. We have them all, from “Hello” to “No Good In Goodbye”. Now, it is time to say “hello” to the Top 100 and “goodbye” to the year that was 2015.

In the next 20 songs on the countdown, two singers named Jamie (neither of which Ray Parker, Jr. sang about in 1984), a quintet that’s no longer together after just one major-label single, a recent On The Verge track at CHR/Top 40 radio, a song title that is a word away from being a hot Moody Blues remake, and one of the year’s top fidelity anthems that many people deemed “good”. If you’re ready to be tempted with some tantalizing tunes, sit back and listen to the songs ranked #60 through #41:
