Step Back In Time: 2004 In Music (Part V)

This is one of the years I'd also LOVE to come back to... but - no time machine created that we know of yet <:) So, here's something to remember! ;)

Of course, Kylie Minogue! :) The year saw Red Blooded Woman and Chocolate videos from Body Language, but also Ultimate Kylie (Greatest Hits) was released and I Believe In You is a very memorable song for many people. It is written by Kylie and Scissor Sisters members Jake Shears and Babydaddy. The single peaked at #2 in the United Kingdom and at #6 in Australia. The song became a dance club hit in the United States, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart in 2005 and earning a nomination for a 2006 Grammy Award in the "Best Dance Recording" category. The song also spent six weeks at #1 on the airplay chart.

"Left Outside Alone" is a song by Anastacia from her 3rd studio album, Anastacia, following her cancer battle. Written by Anastacia, Dallas Austin, and Glen Ballard, the song was released as the album's lead single on March 15, 2004 to successful commercial performance, reaching #1 in Australia, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland; #2 in Denmark, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Norway; and #3 in the United Kingdom and Hungary.

"Lose My Breath" is a song performed by Destiny's Child. It was written by Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Rodney Jerkins, LaShawn Daniels, Fred Jerkins III, Sean Garrett, and Shawn Corey "Jay-Z" Carter for Destiny's Child's fourth studio album, Destiny Fulfilled (2004). It was released as the album's lead single in late 2004, considered as their comeback after a three-year break. The single was critically and commercially successful, receiving positive responses from critics and the public and reached the top spot on most charts in Europe, making it one of Destiny's Child's most successful single releases.

"Toxic" is a song by Britney Spears, co-written and produced by Bloodshy & Avant, from her fourth album, In the Zone. It was released on January 12, 2004, by Jive Records as the second single from the album. It attained worldwide success, reaching the top-five in fifteen countries, while topping the charts in Australia, Canada, Hungary, Norway and the United Kingdom. In the United States, it became her fourth top ten single."Toxic" won Spears her first Grammy at the 2005 ceremony in the category of Best Dance Recording, while gaining her credibility amongst critics.

I still get goosebumps listening to thins one! "I Don't Wanna Know" is a 2004 song by Mario Winans, featuring a rap by P. Diddy and sampling from Enya's song "Boadicea". It reached #1 in the United Kingdom and in Netherlands, also it reached #2 (for 8 consecutive weeks) in the United States, and remains Winans' only major success to date. 

"Since U Been Gone" is a song by Kelly Clarkson from her album Breakaway (2004). The song was written and produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke and it was released on December 22, 2004 as the second single from the album. The song was a commercial success. In the United States, "Since U Been Gone" peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. It topped US Pop 100 for six consecutive weeks and US Pop Songs for seven consecutive weeks respectively. At the 48th Grammy Awards, the song won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "Since U Been Gone" was also a worldwide success, peaking inside the Top5 in Austria, Australia, Netherlands, Ireland and United Kingdom.

"Not in Love" is a pop song performed by Enrique Iglesias and Kelis (what a year she had!). The song was written by Enrique Iglesias, Paul Barry, Mark Taylor and Fernando Garibay for Iglesias' seventh studio album, 7 (2003). It was released as the album's second and final single in early 2004, peaking at #5 on the UK Singles Chart.

And oh how I love this one: "Burn" (also known as "Let It Burn") is a song by Usher, which he wrote with American songwriters Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox for his 4th studio album, Confessions (2004). It is about breakup in a relationship, and the public referred to it as an allusion to Usher's personal struggles.
The song was released as the second single from the album in July 2004. The single topped various charts around the world, including the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 non-consecutive weeks. The song succeeded "Yeah!" at the #1 position. Both singles gave Usher 19 consecutive weeks with a song in the top spot, longer than any solo artist of the Hot 100 era.

What about this super catchy one: "Thank You" was the 3rd single from British R&B star Jamelia's 2nd album Thank You. The song, released in the UK on 24 February 2004, became Jamelia's highest charting single in the UK to date, peaking at #2, and spending 14 weeks within the whole UK Singles Chart. Following the release of this single, the album Thank You was re-released, peaking at #4 in the UK Albums Chart. The song was quite successful in the likes of Australia, New Zealand, Finland and Ireland, peaking inside the top 20.

"My Happy Ending" is a song written and produced by Avril Lavigne and Butch Walker for Lavigne's 2nd album, Under My Skin (2004). It was released in 2004 and became Lavigne's 4th most successful single. It peaked higher than "Don't Tell Me", the album's first single. In the United Kingdom, it reached the Top 5; in the United States, it peaked at #9 (staying in #9 for 4 weeks).

Nostalgic yet? ;)
I am to be honest <:)
