10 Songs You Haven't Thought About Since 2005

There are some songs that we are never able to forget, no matter how much time has passed since we first heard them. Then there are the songs that seem to just vanish from our memories, even if we actually loved them at the time. Even though we haven't thought about these songs in at least 10 years, I promise that the second you hear them again you'll wonder how you ever forgot they existed.

"Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" - Nine Days

I know for a fact that as soon as you heard the line "This is the story of a girl," you immediately sang "who cried a river and drowned the whole world." I don't know how we can forget a song ever happened while still remembering all its lyrics, but here we are.

"Smile" - Vitamin C

We all remember Vitamin C, mostly because her song "Graduation" was the graduation song for pretty much everyone who graduated between 1999 and 2005 (it was either that or "Good Riddance" by Green Day). But you probably forgot about her other hit single "Smile," which was actually more successful on the charts than the song everyone remembers her for. I don't think that would put a smile on anyone's face.

"Faded" - soulDecision

soulDecision have the bad luck of not only being a one hit wonder, but also being a one hit wonder that no one remembers. At least their song is catchy.

"Case of the Ex" - Mýa

If you do remember pop star Mýa, it's probably for her part alongside Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, and Pink for the song "Lady Marmalade." But her single "Case of the Ex" was the song that made her famous, and as soon as you hear the chorus you're definitely going to remember it.

"Ocean Avenue" - Yellowcard

Considering just how many pop punk bands made it big in the early-2000s, it makes sense that there are some bands that will get overshadowed. Despite the honor of being "the pop punk band with a violin," Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue" just wasn't enough to keep them forever burned in our memories.

But they weren't the only music group whose hit song we completely forgot...

The internet can be kind of an awful place sometimes. There is a lot going on in the world, and people tend to use the internet to express their anger. But every once in awhile, a little diamond in the rough manages to come to the surface and gives us all a moment of reprieve. There are a few ways that this happens. It might be a cute animal, an uplifting story of a real live decent person. But my personal favorites are the ridiculous memes that bring us all the certain type of joy that only ridiculous puns and


15 Songs Turning 15 That Will Make You Realize 2002 Was The Most Iconic Year In Music

As much as we like to joke about how awful the early 2000s could be, one thing that definitely wasn't awful during that time was the music. While there are plenty of songs from that time that have sadly been forgotten, there are others that, love 'em or hate 'em, will forever be burned into our memories. You definitely still remember all the words to these songs, but you definitely forgot that they all came out in the same year. So here's to 2002, the year we all forgot was actually unforgettable.
