My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2004

Every Friday I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 15, 20, or 30 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).

It’s the 2ND Friday of the month, so I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 12TH 2004:

  1. “She Will Be Loved” – Maroon 5
  2. “Pieces Of Me” – Ashlee Simpson
  3. “My Happy Ending” – Avril Lavigne
  4. “Meant To Live” – Switchfoot
  5. “The Reason” – Hoobastank

That was a powerful Top 5 back during the 2ND weekend of September of 2004. In fact all 5 of those songs represented 5 out of the Top 6 hits of the entire year. The other one – Maroon 5’s breakthrough smash – “This Love” – which was the # 5 hit of the year.

If you had told me back in 2004 that Maroon 5 would be one of the biggest pop acts of the next 15 years then I would have laughed at you. Frankly I thought that they would be a two-hit-wonder-and-done after “This Love” and “She Will Be Loved”, so clearly I got that wrong.

It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
