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 September 11TH 2005:

  1. “Pon De Replay” – Rihanna
  2. “La Tortura” – Shakira Ft. Alejandro Sanz
  3. “Let Me Hold You” – Bow Wow Ft. Omarion
  4. “Lose Control” – Missy Elliott Ft. Ciara & Fatman Scoop
  5. “Get It Poppin'” – Fat Joe Ft. Nelly

I’m glad I survived and moved on from that debacle that was 2005. You think 2020 is your worst year ever ?  Not for me. That would be 2005. I don’t even remember much of 2005 other than the fact that it was very dark. 

At the movies (where I escaped reality) I saw “The Man” back on September 18TH 2005. It starred Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy as cops. It received horrible reviews by critics and moviegoers, and it was a box office flop. I rated it as 3.5 stars, so apparently I laughed a few times at the hijinks that ensued.

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 !
