Retro Thursday: 4/05

By request: April 2005

(A week late due to gremlins!)

George W. Bush was president of the United States

Paul Martin was prime minister of Canada

John Howard was prime minister of Australia

Elizabeth was queen of England (in case you were wondering.)


Singles from a few of the album releases:

Rob Thomas: "This Is How A Heart Breaks" from ...Something to Be


Better than Ezra: "Juicy" from Before the Robots

Hahaha...this video's so goofy. :)


Mariah Carey: "We Belong Together" from The Emancipation of Mimi

I'm not a huge Mariah fan - though I acknowledge her incredible voice - and I'm not at all a fan of these kinds of videos but oh my goodness...Wentworth Miller!

Video Games

Lego Star Wars

I never did finish this game. I should do that....



Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Love this movie.


Kung Fu Hustle

Also a favorite. :)


The average price of gas:


New York--$2.23

On the Charts

Apparently Elvis Presley broke the record for the most UK number one singles in 2005. Elvis had 4 songs in the top ten in the UK in April alone. How did he do that exactly? More to the point, who got all the money?


#3 in the UK the week of April 17th, Ciara featuring Missy Elliot. This one's for Jo.


#7 in the UK the week of April 24th, Nine Inch Nails (a family favorite). This one's for Mae.


Backstreet Boys released the single Incomplete which debuted at #1 in Australia (their first #1 hit there.)
