  • Blast from the… Past? 17 Songs Turning a Decade Old This Year.

    2007 songs main

    So, apparently ten years ago it was not 1997, but in fact 2007. Feeling old yet? Well put down your copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, pick up your 1st generation Iphone and listen to these songs from a decade ago, back when Trump was doing reality TV and not ruling the United States. 

     

     

    Beyoncé – ‘Irreplaceable’

     

    This was everyone’s break-up anthem in 2007……and still is today. Long live Queen Bey. 

     

    Rihanna feat. Jay-Z – ‘Umbrella’

     

    ‘Eh? Eh? Eh?’

     

    Gwen Stefani – ‘Sweet Escape’

     

    Can we please escape back to the sweet time when Gwen was still making music? 

     

    Plain White T’s – ‘Hey There Delilah’

     

    This ultimate love song was later made into an Arab-mazing parody

     

    Fergie feat. Ludacris – ‘Glamorous’

     

    We’re feeling I-N-C-R-E-D-U-L-O-U-S. 

     

    Avril Lavigne – ‘Girlfriend’

     

    She must have wanted to be Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger’s girlfriend, because five years later in 2013 they got married.
    The couple then split in 2015. Guess he had to go and make things complicated? 

     

    Amy Winehouse – ‘Back To Black’

     

    This classic was released four years before the iconic singer died in 2011. 

     

    Maroon 5 – ‘Makes Me Wonder’

     

    Maroon 5 were still killin’ it ten years ago. 

     

    Kanye West – ‘Stronger’

     

    This one dates back to a time when Kanye was focusing on making good music and not on Kim Kardashian’s bum. 

     

    Akon feat. Eminem – ‘Smack That’

     

    Even if this wasn’t playing on your car’s stereo, you could still hear it from the car next to you. And behind you. And the one 1km ahead of you. 

     

    Timbaland feat. Nelly Furtado & Justin Timberlake – ‘Give It To Me’

     

    But for real, why isn’t this playing at clubs anymore?! These three beat out Major Lazer any night. 

     

    Soulja Boy Tell’em – ‘Crank That (Soulja Boy)’

     

    This was the track that made us think we could Crunk. Maybe that’s best left in the past…

     

    Sean Kingston – ‘Beautiful Girls’

     

    They had us suicidal when they told us this song is now a decade old. Kingston- now 26 -was only 17 when he dropped this single! 

     

    Mika – ‘Grace Kelly’

     

    Back when people were giving the Lebanese-British pop singer shit for being gay. He was, however, named the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2007. 

     

    The Hoosiers – ‘Goodbye Mr. A’

     

    The Hoosiers’ second single from their debut album was featured in the trailer for the cult classic film Juno

     

    Leona Lewis – ‘Bleeding Love’

     

    This song came out the year after Lewis won The X Factor, which was still in its third season at the time! 

     

    Enrique Iglesias – ‘Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)’

     

    Fans of the Latin King of Pop rejoice– last year Iglesias dropped this hit you probably missed

     

    Now we feel ancient because music just ain’t the same these days, and that’s exactly what old geezers say….. 
    Oh, well. Might as well embrace it.
