    The year 2005 was a different time. Everyone was on MySpace. And everywhere you went, people were singing "Hollaback Girl." Oprah's list of favorite things from 2005 is not exactly a time capsule of the mid 2000s (just as not everyone is scrambling for every item on her list this year). But it's still a peak into what would most likely cause a group of Oprah fans to lose their minds 10 years ago.

    The answer includes everything from iPods still sporting the clicky wheel to tins full of caramel corn. Now the real question is, are these still some of Oprah's favorite things? Do they just add up, year after year, or does she get sick of certain things? And has anyone ever done a Sound of Music-style parody?

    Ahead, a look back at the precious items that made the list in 2005.

    When they still had the wheel. Audience members could carry around an mp3 of their screams of joy.

    Uggs Uptown Boot
    Years before "basic" jokes, young women took fashion into their own hands. These are fuzzy and warm. They're cool now. But ladies, they look like... okay,THEY'RE COOL NOW.

    Philosophy's Hope In A Jar
    Unlike the rest of us, audience members no longer had to hope they'd find this pricier item on the beauty shelf at T.J.Maxx.

    BlackBerry 7105T from T-Mobile
    Remember when there were BlackBerry people? So many more opportunities for tech blogs to make fruit jokes. Oprah's audience members could have been some of the first of their friends to text on a full keyboard.
