10 Songs That Turn 10 This Year

Yanne Diogenes, Staff Writer

It’s been 10 years since we cranked that Souja Boy, 10 years! Just let that sink in, that 10 years ago was 2007, not 1997, and some of your favorite songs turn 10 this year:

  1. Irreplaceable – Beyonce

Can’t you just remember being 7 or 8 years old singing to the cheating boyfriend you never had, telling him to “move his boxes to the left.”  

  1. Teenagers – My Chemical Romance

This song should instantly bring you back to the days where you excessively straightened your hair and checker board everything with cut off gloves. Where are you, MCR? Will you ever be back to wake up the emo kid in us once again?

  1. Gimme More – Britney Spears

Some would say this was Britney’s comeback song after the whole…umbrella and shaving of the head incident. She performed this song at the VMA’s and let’s be honest, was it anything less than perfect? (Note: sarcasm)

  1. Girlfriend – Avril Lavigne

Yet another song that we sang to our imaginary boyfriends. I don’t know about you, but I knew every word and was determined in acting out both girls in the music video. Hooray for Avril for getting the guy in the end!

  1. Apologize – Timberland ft. OneRepublic

This song was one that you knew all the words to subconsciously, whether you liked it or not. It became one of the overplayed songs like most on this list, but I’ll be darned if this song comes on and you don’t sing at the top of your lungs.

  1. Buy U a Drank – T-Pain ft. Yung Joc

This song just…just a straight jam. You couldn’t help but start snapping and dancing when this song came on in the car, even though your little mind didn’t know what the lyrics were talking about.

  1.  A Bay Bay – Hurricane Chris

Not gonna lie, this song was pretty annoying, but my mom and I still sang along whenever it came on the radio (every five minutes).

  1. Kiss Kiss – Chris Brown

Despite Chris Brown’s…problems, we can’t help but enjoy his songs since we basically grew up with them.

  1. Same Girl – R. Kelly ft. Usher

Wow, can you believe these two battled it out for the same girl? And we related to it in the second grade? Amazing.

  1. Valerie – Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson

This song is probably the cutest one on this list. Amy Winehouse was such an angel and this cover is one that everyone loves no matter what.

So, believe it or not, if all of these songs were children, they would be fourth graders this year. Feel old yet?
