The Year in Music: 2007

The Year in Music: 2007

With the Decades series we honor the legacy of music history 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and even 60 years back in time. Join us for a deep musical dive into the best songs, biggest hits, album favorites and forgotten gems from each year. In 2017 we look at the music of 1957, 1967, 1977, 1987, 1997 and 2007. Each playlist – a carefully curated mix of approximately 100 hits, singles and album cuts we’ve found worthy of inclusion – gives you a historical snapshot of a 12-month window in popular music. For the sake of historical coherence, these do not necessarily reflect the top charts of the year, but rather the official release dates. Bring on the nostalgia!

This playlist is made in 2017, and it’s rather crazy to be reminded that it has been a decade since “Umbrella,” “Stronger,” “1234″ and “Paper Planes,” ten years since American Gangster, Icky Thump, Neon Bible and Sound of Silver. Time flies, but great music persists – and 2007 is packed with delights in a rapidly fragmented and shifting musical landscape.
