On Air Now
The Capital Weekender With Ministry of Sound 10pm - 6am
We can't believe that these songs are a DECADE old and we're STILL getting down to them on the dancefloor!
It's hard to believe that it's been so long since a fresh-faced Rihanna dropped her debut single! 'Pon De Replay' was the lead track from her first album, 'Children Of The Sun' and it still sounds fresh in 2015!
Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry dropped the lead single from their second studio album 'Wonderland' in March 2005 - and we're STILL stuck singing along to the catchy pop tune!
The Sugababes may have had more members than we've had hot dinners over their 13 year long career, but this tune from Mutya, Keisha and Heidi definitely makes the trio one of our faves!
When a song features pin-ups including Nicole Scherzinger and Ashley Roberts, rapper Busta Rhymes and was written & produced by Cee-Lo Green you know it's going to be a hit! PCD's debut single topped the charts in a massive 15 countries back in 2005!
Kelly's anthemic hit from her second album, 'Breakaway', still has us screaming the lyrics out (and it just *might* be aimed at an ex...)
The fifth and final single from the group's self-titled debut album also became their first top 5 hit in the UK! Even a decade later, the disco classic still has us throwing shapes on the dance floor and singing in high-pitched tones!
The first single from Madonna's mammoth TENTH album, 'Confessions On A Dancefloor', and samples Abba's 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!' - it was also the first ever Madonna track to be available to download on iTunes.
It was the first track partly written by Jay-Z that had us panting with purpose whilst singing along! Beyonce, Kelly & Michelle's hit was released in 2005 and still sounds fresh today!
Taken from the Peas' debut album, 'Monkey Business', was written by will.i.am and Fergie and is still infectiously catchy a decade later!
It's the song responsible for us singing the incredibly corny (and suggestive) "I'll let you lick the lollypops!" - for the last ten years. Oh dear!
Not only did one of the world's biggest rappers scoop Pharrell Williams for his track 10 years ago, he also managed to squeeze his own name into the lyrics... Come on, you can't listen to this without going "Snooooooooooop!"
The track that introduced us to chipmunk voices in urban tracks was also Akon's first worldwide hit in 2005!
It was Adam Levine & co's third hit from their debut album 'Songs About Jane', and remains one of our favourite EVER ballads 10 years later!
The insanely catchy pop-tune from the R&B princess may have been released in 2005, but it's still proving a success for Amerie, being used on the soundtracks for 'Hitch' and 'Grand Theft Auto V'
'Get Right' was taken from J Lo's fourth studio album, 'Rebirth', and is a true mid-naughties classic!
We can't believe it's been 10 years since John Legend dropped one of the most beautiful songs ever! The stripped-back classic was possibly our favourite ballad of his, until 2014's MASSIVE hit 'All Of Me'!
Forget about "dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984", we're still dancing to the Arctic Monkeys' debut hit like it's 2005! Alex Turner & co's band stormed straight to the top of the charts a decade ago!
