Subject: 2006 Remembrance Thread

Written By: xX07-GhostXx on 07/29/20 at 9:18 pm

2006 is a year I find extremely likable.

If there's already a thread like this, please forgive me, because I didn't know about it. But at the same time, please post any information about the (cultural) atmosphere of 2006 here.

I didn't like it that much, the years before it were better. But whenever I think of 2006 I think of this song because it was always on the radio during that time:

It was my least favorite year of the decade. I liked JT's album but the song that comes to mind when I think about 2006 is "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt, mainly because I heard it 50 times a day that year, lol.

2006 was kind of like the start if something new. I don’t know its hard to explain but a lot of technology and pop culture began to change in 2006. The vibe wasn’t as great as the years before it. 2006/2007 is when a lot of stores like Blockbuster began going downhill, misic stores were going out of business, Toys r us started to decline in sales/mainstream popularity, iPods started gaining more success, etc. But I did like some of the movies and tv shows that were released that year.

Oh yeah that song was inescapable too.

2006 was inferior to 2005 in my opinion. But there's no question that change was in the air.

When I think of 2006, these songs, artists, movies, social media, and trends come to mind:

- Nelly Furtado
- Timbaland
- Justin Timberlake
- Cassie (Me & U)
- Rihanna (S.O.S.)
- Ne-Yo (Sexy Love)
- T-Pain
- Chris Brown (Gimme That)
- iPods
- Ciara
- Akon
- Shakira/Wyclef (Hips Don't Lie)
- My Chemical Romance (The Black Parade)
- Emo fashion
- Ringtones
- World Cup
- Christina Aguilera
- Borat
- The Fray
- Blood Diamond
- Little Man
- Night at the Museum
- You, Me, and Dupree
- The Departed
- MySpace
- Facebook
- YouTube
- George W. Bush

Agreed, and that list is a reminder that 2006 was one of the most culturally lackluster years. Out of that list the only things I liked were Borat, The Daparted, Night at the Museum, Italy 🇮🇹 winning the World Cup, and some of JT' and Nelly Furtado's songs. I would however like to add Superman Returns, V For Vendetta, Talledega Nights, and the release of the Wii and PS3.

I agree. I never look back at 2006 and think of how great a year it is.

I hate 2005, but it's for deeply personal reasons. I like a lot of stuff from 2005, but wouldn't be able to bring myself to like the year as a whole.

I was going to create a new thread next year as 2006 will be the throwback year of 2022, but I'll just add to this one when the time comes. This thread was created barely 6 months ago and I even posted on it, but I still don't remember it. That's how your memory goes when you're old like me, lol. Hopefully I'll still remember this next year.

I just know her as Fergie. "London Bridge" is one hit I remember from that year.

I'm starting to get nostalgic for this year, which I never thought would happen. I especially liked late 2006 when I started high school and the 7th generation of gaming got underway.

Two songs you would find on my iPod then.

I was 5/6 in 2006, and the things that I vaguely remember was SexyBack being played on the radio all the time and watching Avatar: The Last Airbender without knowing all the intricate storylines (lol). Looking at everyone's comments and my personal research, I would agree that 2006 was pretty mediocre in comparison to years like 2004 or even '03.

Hit movies (besides the critically acclaimed film The Departed) weren't really anything to write home about. Cars? Night At The Museum? Okay, that was a pretty funny movie, but still. Another Pirates at the Caribbean movie? No, thanks. We were still pretty knee-deep in the Iraq War quagmire, so I guess that's something noteworthy.

Only things that were interesting were the music and tech. Some of my favorite songs ever came out this year (Crazy, Rehab (Amy Winehouse), Promiscuous, Hips Don't Lie, etc). And of course there was the Wii and PS3 establishing the seventh gen console war and the mid-2000s culture at large. MySpace was HUGE and YouTube was beginning to find its rhythm in Internet culture.

I actually thought 2006 was a good year for movies. I enjoyed V for Vendetta, Borat, Idiocracy, Little Miss Sunshine and Stranger Than Fiction. I might be forgetting a few others.

Another thing is that 2006 was an amazing year for television. We had Lost, Prison Break, first season Dexter, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, The Office, Donald Trump's The Apprentice and many others. Too many reality shows but if you knew to ignore that there was a lot of quality to be found.

Early YouTube was special. Many hours spent with my brother making Dragonball Z AMVs on Windows Movie Maker.  :-qAUjGyMVhqw

It was a decent year. Nothing bad really happened. Its just that somewhat forgettable year squashed between more memorable years like 2005 and 2007. Kind of like 2016.


I actually thought 2006 was a good year for movies. I enjoyed V for Vendetta, Borat, Idiocracy, Little Miss Sunshine and Stranger Than Fiction.

Yep, these are actually pretty important films to modern pop culture. Reddit and the Youtube community refer to Borat and Idiocracy quite frequently.


Another thing is that 2006 was an amazing year for television.

This is because the early 2000s was the start of the modern golden age of television.

It's probably worth noting too that before reality TV blew up, soap operas and bad sitcoms clogged up the airwaves whenever networks couldn't show reruns of shows people actually wanted to watch. Services like Netflix and HBO have helped us largely avoid the usual TV shovelware in recent years.
