Subject: Your Favorite Songs of 2005

Written By: bbigd04 on 05/06/05 at 5:33 pm

Vote for your favorite '05 songs, some came out in late '04 but still are popular. This list is some of what I am currently know, but there's a lot more out there of course feel free to add your own picks. I'll go with Let me go, Mr. Brightside, and Karma.

Some interesting picks. Some haven't been released yet over here in the UK, such as Coldplay's new one (which i've been dying to hear for ages), and i've only heard the Foo Fighter's new one today, which apparently was its debut. One of my favourite songs of the year is the Stereophonic's 'Dakota', and I also like The Killers' 'Somebody Told Me', which came out in January.

The best song so far has DEFINITELY been "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keene, Came out in 2004, but is only getting mainstream pay here now.

Stacy's Mom...I just think it's a well-crafted pop song...


What I'm REALLY waiting for is P.O.D. finishing their new CD...It's going to be even better than the previous stuff according to the website and people in the know!

"Mr. Brightside," which isn't as good as "Somebody Told Me" but is still solid is one.

"Chariot," which has some of the best lyrics I've heard in pop in years, is another (though I have a soft spot for Gavin, because I was a fan before he was famous  :))

and my 3rd choice was 'other.' That "other" is "Devils and Dust" by Bruce Springsteen. A moving, somber, poigniant song that proves Bruce has still got it!

Asyln: Be the Girl (2004)
Frankie J/Baby Bash Obsession (2005)

I don't really know those first 2, but yeah the last 2 are good. The Way You Move by Outkast is definitely a 2004 song, it was big in earlier 2004, it of course was the second single of the speakerboxx/the love below album after hey ya.

Interesting flashback to what I was playing 6 years ago, I'd still keep "Karma" and "Mr Brightside" but I'd probably drop "Let Me Go" (they had better songs) a few I'd add would be something like "Feel Good inc", "Right Here" by Staind, "Holiday" which I already had on this list. I remember I used to like "Don't Phunk My Heart" back then but I think it's trash now lmao. "Broken" by Seether and Amy Lee was played a lot back then though I think that was late 2004, still great song though. "An Honest Mistake" too great great song. I think 2005 had some of the best songs of the '00s but also some of the worst (Laffy Taffy). I miss early 2005 when r&b and rock was still very popular a lot more than late 2005 when snap rap and emo became popular. Funny seeing the Natalie song there, she's so forgotten now, still it wasn't a bad song.

I chose Mr. Brightside, Speed of Sound, and Breathe. I also wanted to choose Hollaback Girl and Beverly Hills, but the poll wouldn't allow it.  :(

Oh I originally only made it 3 songs I guess back then, if I still had that account and could change it I would lmao. Still very good choices.

I'm not keen on any of those songs in the poll. 

My pick for best song of 2005 is 'Heartbeatz' by Styles and Breeze featuring Karen Danzig, which also doubles as my pick of greatest song of the 2000s

My favorite from the list would have to be from Rob Thomas's 'Lonely No More'.

Overall, I didn't really like 2005 in music that much.
