Ready to feel old? It's been nearly a decade since these songs hit the radio! As mind-blowing as it is to realize that such a long time has passed, it's fun to reminisce and listen to the jams of 2005. Some of these songs (like Ciara/Missy Elliot's 1,2 Step) actually came out in 2004 BUT rose to popularity the following year, which is why they're included in the list!
1 Hollaback Girl
Anyone else refer to this song when they're trying to spell "bananas"? LOL. Hollaback Girl dominated the airwaves for all of 2005 and I'm sure, when played today, you'd still be able to remember ALL the lyrics!
2 Let Me Love You
I'll admit, I was obsessed with this song when it came out. Mario always knew what to say! Right, ladies?
3 Since U Been Gone
Kelly Clarkson's racked up hit after hit, but did you know that Since U Been Gone is turning ten this year?! I can remember singing (screaming) along every time this song was on the radio.
4 1,2 Step
Anyone else think Ciara and Missy Elliot should team up for another hit song? They made quite the team!
5 Gold Digger
Kanye West and Jamie Foxx's "Gold Digger" might be turning ten years old but that doesn't mean people have forgotten about it.
6 Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" used to be the anthem to many people's lives. Ten years later, it's become a classic and timeless song.
7 Candy Shop
We can ALL remember 50 Cent's "Candy Shop," right?! This song was everywhere in 2005.
8 Don't Cha
The Pussycat Dolls "Don't Cha" single, featuring Busta Rhymes, found major success in 2005. Don't Cha wish the song was still around?
9 Behind These Hazel Eyes
Here's another Kelly Clarkson mega-hit that's been around for a decade. This song is an oldie but still such a goodie!
10 Disco Inferno
Remember this song?!
11 You and Me
This was probably my all-time favorite song in 2005. It's still such a treat to listen to today!
12 Don't Phunk with My Heart
Black Eyed Peas songs are always acceptable to listen to, no matter how old they are!
13 Lose Control
Here's another great song that Missy Elliot and Ciara released!
14 Shake It off
All of Mariah Carey's songs become classics. "Shake It Off" is still such a good song to listen to!
15 Mr. Brightside
Whoa - "Mr. Brightside" is already ten years old?!
16 Just a Lil Bit
It's safe to say that 50 Cent was constantly on the radio in 2005.
17 Pon De Replay
Could it really be 10 years that we were all introduced to Rihanna?!
18 How We do
The Game's "How We Do," featuring 50 Cent, was very popular!
19 Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills. That's where I want to be! I still listen to this song regularly.
Anyone else come to the realization that we NEED new Ciara music this year?!
21 Lonely No More
Rob Thomas' "Lonely No More" will never get old.
22 Drop It like It's Hot
Do you still find yourself listening to this song?
23 1 Thing
2005 was all about Amerie's "1 Thing"!
24 Sugar, We're Going down
This song might be turning ten years old, but I'll never get tired of listening to it. Fall Out Boy forever!
25 Run It
Remember when Chris Brown became a music sensation with this single?!
26 My Boo
This song was for all the lovebirds!
Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely!
28 Feel Good Inc
This song does NOT feel like it's been out for an entire decade!
29 Listen to Your Heart
Anyone else remember being absolutely obsessed with this song?
30 Obsession (no Es Amor)
You never go wrong with some Frankie J.
I forgot how much I really loved this song but I'm so happy I've re-discovered it! What ever happened to Howie Day?!
32 Let Me Go
3 Doors Down for the win!
I definitely remember Papa Roach's "Scar" being extremely popular in 2005!
Well, there you have it. These are just 33 popular songs that are turning 10 years old this year! Makes you feel kind of old, right? Can you think of any others?!
