Do you remember where you were in 2005? For many of us, it was a simpler time – before the iPhone, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. It was a time when we still used AOL Instant Messenger and MySpace to stay in touch with friends. This week on Mr. Romance’s Top 10 Countdown we are taking a trip down memory lane to revisit the 10 most popular songs from this week’s adult contemporary chart back on April 23, 2005. So put on your nostalgia goggles and get ready to take a trip back in time!

Pop Culture In 2005

YouTube had just been invented, Guitar Hero hit shelves for the first time and 21 year old Carrie Underwood won the 4th season of American Idol. At the movies you were watching: Star Wars: Return of the Sith, Batman Begins and Wedding Crashers. On TV it was CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy. And we all remember the time Tom Cruise jumped for joy on Oprah’s couch. Hard to believe that was 17 years ago!

Song Spotlight – Howie Day

Taking a detour off the Top 10, let’s showcase a song gaining momentum up the chart.

Howie Day grew up Bangor, Maine and first took hold of a guitar at age 14 and two years later, he was touring full-time and eventually opening for the likes Sting, Jack Johnson and Sheryl Crow. By 2000, Howie had amassed enough original material to release his debut album which is financed himself.

Fortunately, it was good enough to get the attention at Sony Records who released his second album Stop All the World Now. And thanks to features on TV shows such as Scrubs, One Tree Hill and Third Watch, the third single from the album became his most popular. Spending 58 weeks on the charts and eventually hitting a peak of #7. This week, it’s moving up the charts at #18. His song? Collide

Trivia from 2005

In 2005, theaters were packed with action and adventure found in series like Star Wars, Harry Potter and King King but on TV a different kind of format was becoming popular: The mockumentary. A certain sitcom met with mixed reviews at first but went on to air eight more seasons winning a ton of awards. An estimated 5.6 million viewers tuned in for the final episode in 2013 and Rolling Stone called it one the greatest shows of all time. The TV show? The Office
