2000s Music Radio

My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2005

Every 2ND, 3RD, and 4TH Friday of the month I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 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 June 12TH 2005:

  1. “Somebody Told Me” – The Killers
  2. “Don’t Mess With My Heart” – Black Eyed Peas
  3. “Behind These Hazel Eyes” – Kelly Clarkson
  4. “Oh” – Ciara Ft. Ludacris
  5. “Hollaback Girl” – Gwen Stefani

Some weeks I look back at my Top 5 hits on this weekend (however many) years ago, and I think to myself, “That was a great week of music. I remember what I was doing when those hits played on the radio every 2½ hours around the clock. Those were some good times and happy days.” This weekend 15 years ago is not one of those weekends.

It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with 2 more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
