20 Songs That Defined Your Summer 10 Years Ago

*Still waiting for a Cassie comeback*

Posted on

The year was 2006. The time was summer. People called selfies "Myspace pictures," everyone non-ironically wore capris, and Heelys (the shoes with roller skates) were a thing that were actually advertised and sold in stores (you secretly wanted them).

And these were the songs you listened to:

1. "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado and Timbaland
