My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2006

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 15, 25, 30, or 35 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).

It’s the 1ST Friday of the month, so I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 04TH 2006:

  1. “Ridin'” – Chamillionaire Ft. Krazie Bone
  2. “What You Know” – T.I.
  3. “Promiscuous” – Nelly Furtado Ft. Timbaland
  4. “Beep” – The Pussycat Dolls Ft. WILL.I.AM
  5. “Pump It” – The Black Eyed Peas

I don’t have much of anything to say about that chart. I was obviously in a hip hop era back then, and I don’t remember much of it at all. I was at a very low place at the time. About 11 weeks later my life would change forever.

One of my historical Excel spreadsheets tells me that I saw a free movie at my local movie theatre on my 39TH birthday on June 05TH 2006. That was “The Break-Up” starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. I rated it 3.5 stars.

Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 25 years ago to June 1996.

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 !
