Whats Your Top Ten Fav Songs of 07?

Updated on May 11, 2011

Do your local djs only play a certain playlist?

In My Opinion...

Looking at the Rolling Stone magazine article, “The 100 Best Songs of 2007,” and other less well known sites, I’m reminded of the songs that were played on a constant loop by my local radio stations that year. It should be noted that, due to these certain djs continued inability to diversify their playlists, I rarely listen to the radio. However, of these hundred or so songs, I have chosen ten (in no particular order) that I believe deserve mention/I wouldn’t mind hearing again.

1. Rehab- Amy Winehouse

While this song still remains strong on the air waves, I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of it. Besides how much of a throwback to the 1950s it is(at least sound wise), the fact that Ms. Winehouse’s life is in shambles thanks to her inability to stay in rehab is too much irony for this former English major to pass up. Every time I hear this song, I begin to wonder when things went from for her. I wonder if fame is killing her or if fame is what keeps her alive. With its addictive (no pun intended) beat, it’s a song everyone who has used or known someone who used can relate to. It’s an unforgettable song even after one hearing.

2. 1234- Feist

Though a very minimalist song, isn’t it good sometimes to not have to think? The song is about having your heart broken and coming back from it. I don’t know about you though, but for me it took reading the lyrics to figure out what she’s saying. I like this song for the sound (What other widely played song of recent years featured horns, pianos and a banjo?) and for how unique it is.

3. The Pretender- Foo Fighters

While some people might call this song “loud and angry,” I think it’s great. I wouldn’t listen to it before bed, but it’s a perfect car song. It’s about how fake we all are and the need to be more honest/real. It’s about sticking to your guns even when it’s not the popular thing to do. Still, even if the lyrics weren’t good and the song was meaningless (both are so untrue by the way), I would still like this song. The guitar riffs are pretty darn cool!

4. The Story- Brandi Carlile

This is by far one of the most beautiful love songs I’ve ever heard. Carlile’s voice is unique in that it’s scratchy in all the right places, a bit like Melissa Etheridge’s. Having seen her in concert, it is clear that she loves playing music and sings from the heart. The lyrics of this song are intense and honest, not something you would find on the pop charts.

5. The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson

I remember I was flipping through the TV channels one morning waiting for a show to come on. I stumbled upon the above song and immediately rushed to my computer to download it. It’s a quirky love song in that it’s so honest and to the point. Michaelson’s voice is sweet, her stage presence genuine. It’s not surprising that this song isn’t well played.

6. Teenagers- My Chemical Romance

I’m a relative newcomer to their music. However, from listening to their other songs, it is obvious that this song breaks from the mold. The song is catchy. Once in your head, it is hard to get out. The lyrics are funny and are meant to spotlight misconceptions adults have about teenagers. It’s a rockabilly tune and is definitely unexpected from this rock group.

7. You’re All I Have-Snow Patrol

This is a song of desperation, written for anyone who needs a second chance in a relationship. The lyrics aren’t cheesy. The tempo is just right. It’s what you’d expect of a band like Snow Patrol.

8. Suddenly I See- K.T. Tunstall

Two years later, this fun song is still getting decent air play. I do admit that it was overplayed at first, but when I hear it now, it makes my day better. It’s a song about wanting to be the “it” girl and, depending on how you look it, wanting to be with the “it” girl.

9.If You’re Gonna Leave-Emerson Hart

I was one of those people who were heartbroken when the band Tonic broke up. When I learned that the lead singer was going to be making a solo cd, I couldn’t be happier. This song is basically about trying to get over someone who just won’t go away. It feels like Tonic, but better.

10. Stronger- Kanye West

By far, this was my “guilty pleasure” song of 2007. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not listen to or enjoy rap. Yet, this song makes me dance. This tune is so catchy that you don’t even hear the lyrics. When this song comes on the radio, if I turn it off, you know I’m having a bad day.
