Loved this summer! I was transitioning from middle school to high school that year. Tons of graduation parties, hanging out with my friends all the time, I got my first cell phone. I remember this was a particularly hot summer as well.

That was a pretty good summer of my life. I remember going to the movies a lot, almost weekly to see Batman Begins (of course), Star Wars Episode III, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Four, War of the Worlds, Dukes of Hazard, 40 Year Old Virgin, and a few others. I was also doing a lot of partying, as I was 26 and free before I met my now ex-wife that fall. I also had a MySpace account, and I had an obsession with Lindsay Lohan so I was hoping to find her real MySpace page. Oh, I also met my now ex-wife on MySpace. But the main highlight of 2005 wasn't the summer but my Euro Trip in November. The music of that summer was pretty good too, like Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together", "Sugar We're Going Down" by Fall Out Boy, "Feel Good Inc." by the Gorillaz, and "Lose Control" by Missy Elliot. Even though "My Humps" was annoying at the time, it brings back memories.

You know, this thread made me realize just how much nostalgia I'm staring to feel for this summer now. It really was a pretty awesome time in my life. I graduated from high school in May, got my first real job, paid an (in hindsight) absurd amount of cash my first cell phone, sent my first text message, watched my first video on YouTube, started a MySpace account, began planning for college, finally caught a Star Wars film in a theater when I watched EP III after all it's hype, and just generally spent alot of time hanging out with friends I haven't seen in some time now.

And, of course, it was also during that summer that I visited this site for the first time.

I guess there really is nothing like the summer you turn 18 is it? ;)

I think it took some visual aids of mine to make ppl realize 2005 does have some nostalgia factor lol,  I hardly hear anyone bash this summer ever. Everytime summer of 2005 is brought up I hear nothing but amazing things.  Where did you work? Here are some more aids lol

That was when I officially changed my college major to Liberal Arts. It had been Computer Science until a year or so earlier, but when it wasn't going as planned, and I began to struggle with it, I decided to change directions. So during Fall 2004 and Spring 2005 I was in a "transitional" period, considering changing my major to math, but struggled with a physics class that was part of the Math major...so I ultimately decided on Liberal Arts in June of that year.

Also, I spent lots of time on this site, and my total number of posts (at the time) was in the 30,000's.

2005 Isn't a year that stands out to me too much, but what of I recall that summer was pretty good. I remember watching MTV2's friday night block they had at the time. (Andy Milonakis, Wonder Showzen, Wildboyz) And I also remember watching A lot of Cartoon Network &  Adult Swim at this time. "We Belong Together" Was the number 1 song that whole summer and you couldn't escape it. The same with "Hollaback Girl" & "Don't Cha" And Rihanna had her first big hit with "Pon De Replay." I also remember watching the Live 8 concert in July of that year. All and all, it was an alright summer.8) And (thankfully) the last time i was forced to use dial up internet.  :P

Incidentally, that picture triggered one of my not so fond memories of 2005. I wanted to get a PSP at launch, but didn't have enough money to pay for it outright, so I wound up selling a number of my favorite old games in order to make up the difference in cash. The PSP basically flamed out over the next few years and I've regretted what I did ever since.

Hmmm...there's nothing particularly special to me about the summer of 2005, or the entire year, for that matter. During the summer of 2005, I turned 14, saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in theaters, and started raising hermit crabs. The summers of 2004 and 2006 were more memorable for me. 2005 felt more like an in-between year for me, probably because I was in the middle of junior high then.

Ahh, 2005... I don't know why, but for some reason that summer stands out. I remember listening to the radio a lot that. In terms of music, you couldn't really escape Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" and "Shake It Off", Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" and "Cool", Kanye West's "Golddigger", Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha", Missy Elliott's and Ciara's "Lose Control", Coldplay's "Speed of Sound", among others. I also remember the Backstreet Boys made their comeback with "Incomplete" and "Just Want You to Know". In terms of movies, I thought that year in general was weak though I do remember the huge hype with Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I also remember the releases of Fantastic 4 and Mr. and Mrs. Smith which brings me to something else I remember: the whole media frenzy with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston getting divorced. But honestly, I think the reason why that summer stands out so much is because I was starting high school in late August of that year so it was definitely a transitional period in my personal life. It wasn't the greatest summer since I was going through some personal problems, but it was definitely a memorable one.

I remember all that celebrity obsession too, like with Brangelina and TomKat (that was also the year in which Tom Cruise was jumping on the couch on Oprah), and Britney and K-Fed. There was so much hype about who was having a baby. Also, Paris Hilton was everywhere, especially in that Carl's Jr/Hardees commercial.

Carls Jr's sister company is Hardee's, which are mainly in the South and Midwest. I just found out that Carl's Jr. is planning to expand its franchise internationally, and not just one region/continent but to random countries all over including:  Dominican Republic, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Malaysia, Denmark, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Russia, Vietnam, Turkey and China.

Damn, the music landscape has changed so much since then! :o


I remember all that celebrity obsession too, like with Brangelina and TomKat (that was also the year in which Tom Cruise was jumping on the couch on Oprah), and Britney and K-Fed. There was so much hype about who was having a baby. Also, Paris Hilton was everywhere, especially in that Carl's Jr/Hardees commercial.

^ Oh yes... Rob Thomas went solo from Matchbox20 that year. "Lonely No More" was one of his first solo hits.

I remember a few other tracks you mentioned there too, including "These Words" by Natasha Bedingfield. She had a huge hit later that year with "Unwritten"; I really enjoyed that one when it first came out. (I later figured out how to play the melody of it on the piano.) ;D

Yes, Kelly Clarkson did have a lot of hits that summer, but the one that really stands out is "Since You've Been Gone". Also don't forget about R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet". I was just listening to the 2005 playlist the other day, this thread made me feel like listening to it again, and I think I will again now. Also, I just recently bought the Monkey Business album by Black Eyed Peas. There were many hits from that album: "Pump It Up", "Don't Phunk With My Heart", "My Humps", "Don't Lie", and "Feel It".

Yes, Batman Begins was my favorite movie of that summer, and still is one of my all time favorites (I still like it better than the sequels, though all three of them were good unlike the previous Batman series which clearly went downhill). Also 2005 is when I joined this forum hence my screenname. It feels like a long time ago, but in some ways it feels recent.

The summer of 2005/2006 made me think of the mid 90s for some reason. The summer was '05 laid back but rather boring at times.

Set up a MySpace profile after college let out for the summer. Took an English Course during the summer. Went to See Star Wars Episode III, Batman Begins, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Longest Yard (Adam Sandler remake). Dated and broke up with this girl Leslie who was in a couple of my classes. Listened to a lot of Top 40 and changed jobs.

Summer of 2005 was when I invited a certain woman (who I was going out with at the time) over my house to meet my Parents cause she always said "Why Don't I come Over And Meet Your Parents"? and a month later in August 2005 being the horny toad I was while my parents went on a cruise to Las Vegas I invited her over my house again and hoping to get it on with her since we're both virgins but didn't turn out the way I thought it would and that was that with the situation.

Wait a minute... how could anyone take a cruise to Vegas? That's not a coastal city; it's way far inland. Am I missing something here?

Perhaps it was a mini-cruise ship up the Colorado River? But I would think that something might get in the way before it reached it's destination:

That's nice.

My parents took a vacation for less than a week in August of that year; they left on the 24th (a Wednesday) to the Monterey Bay area and came back on the 28th (a Sunday), while I was at home taking care of our dog Chloe.

I kind of was living and breathing the Michael Jackson abuse trial in 2005. I mean my day started watching Michael go in to court, firing up the chatroom discussing his attire, watching the news junkets and reenactments, and finishing out the day praying for Michael to come out clean. June 13, he did.
And it really was a rosy summer. Cause I remember bragging my natural born black ass off about Michael coming out exonerated, and everytime I turned my friends and I were doing something about him. Playing his music talking about him, all for the purpose of making people notice. I mean I walked tall with my chest out. And it was a relief because when the verdict was handed down, I was literally on the carpet in front of my TV on the phone with my friend Stacie, both of us bawling our eyes out. That's what the summer of 2005 meant: Michael had a new lease on life and it was a great day to be an MJ fan. Cause it gave us cause to say  "See Michael is innocent and if you don't like it..."  ::)

Facebook during its first few years was only open to college students.  They actually had to verify your college email address to prove you were a student before you could get a logon.  Myspace and Xanga dominated in the mid-2000s for teenagers.  I remember in 2008 when everybody and their parents started getting on Facebook.
