Top 50 songs of 2005

2005inMusicAs the end of 2015 approaches, I’m going to spend the next five days daily revealing my personal year-end charts for each year of the latter half of the previous decade, starting ten years ago with 2005, ending the retrospect in 2009, then revealing my picks for the top songs of 2015. Those who have followed this chart will note there will be little resemblance to the pop charts that you’ll see in places such as Billboard. Again, these charts I post are my own personal preferences.

So without further ado… The Top 50 songs of 2005. A video playlist follows…
