It's Time To Accept That 2007 Was The Last Great Year In Music

Don't forget the good times.

Posted on

The year was 2007. People used BlackBerrys as a form of communication, Kim Kardashian was Paris Hilton's assistant, chunky belts were worn by tweens all over the world, and music had its last great year.

From a stool with her little Fergie fedora, the woman formerly known as Stacy Ferguson sang, WITHOUT A DOUBT, one of the best mid-tempo ballads of the 2000s: "Big Girls Don't Cry (Personal)."

In 2007, we squeezed the last bit out of T-Pain. "Bartender" was big that year.

Your mom probably loved "Lips of an Angel" by Hinder.

And Beyoncé released her most underrated song, "Irreplaceable." Gwen Stefani also released her most underrated song, "Sweet Escape." And fuck me running, P!nk released her most underrated song, "U + Ur Hand." What an underrated fucking year for our girls.

If you were more into crying, then 2007 had you covered. The Fray's "How To Save A Life," the Plain White T's "Hey There Delilah," AND "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol all came out in 2007.

All of you emos out there were living your truth in 2007. Fall Out Boy classics "Th nks fr th Mmrs" and "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" came out that year. My Chemical Romance's "Welcome To The Black" was out then too.

And where would the world be without Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls"? Probably nowhere if it was never released in 2007. Amen.

Remember the Gym Class Heroes? Probably not, but you do probably remember the start of "Cupid's Chokehold": "Ba ba da da."

"Umbrella" was the biggest song that year.

Correction: Keri Hilson sang on the "The Way I Are" not Nelly Furtado. I was thinking of "Give It To Me." Oops lol.
