ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: Sounds Of The Season

Chilly cuts for Christmas.

Chilly cuts for Christmas.

It’s the start of another weekend, which means it’s time for 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 feature the highlights of a past countdown. They’re all here — the hit songs, the songs that flopped, and the songs that may be a little embarrassing to reflect on.

This week, we present a special Christmas-themed flashback, featuring the top ten seasonal songs to hit my chart during the last decade. Between the holiday hits and other winter wonders, quite a few titles have hit the 40 over the last ten years.
