Happy 2017 everyone! It’s crazy to think that 2007 is now 10 years ago! Sorry, not crazy, mathematically accurate. So why don’t we all Crank That (Soulja Boy) and take a look back on things that are now 10 years old. Sound good? Kay.
As mentioned above, Soulja Boy was ripping up the charts in 2007 but the power house songs of the year belonged to Beyonce with “Irreplaceable“, Rihanna feat. Jay-Z with “Umbrella“, Gwen Stefani feat. Akon with “Sweet Escape” and Fergie…yes Fergie with Big “Girls Don’t Cry“.
That’s right folks! The iPhone is now 10 years old. The phone that ended the use of phones.
J.K. Rowling released the 7th and final Harry Potter book. The book sold 8.3 million copies in it’s first 24 hours. I just waited for the movie. Reading is for suckers and smart people!
Yep, the movie about a Spartan king and 300 of his closest gym bros came out 10 years ago. Other top movies from 2007 include Spider-Man 3, Transformers, The Simpsons Movie, Shrek The Third, Ratatouille and I am Legend.
Mad Men debuted on AMC 10 years ago bringing a renaissance of men wearing well tailored 60s style suits, drinking on the job and cheating on their wives. Just kidding, they were always drinking on the job and cheating on their wives.
Barry Bonds surpasses Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record. He and other high-profile baseball stars were later accused of steroid use in the Mitchell Report.
I’m still pushing for an all-steroids league as Baseball is very boring.
So there ya go! All that stuff happened 10 years ago and all you have to show for the last 10 years is your awesome job and beautiful family. Such a waste.
