Aging Music

When many of us think of 2008 like it was three years ago, it’s difficult to fathom the fact that it’s been almost a decade since the year people tend to refer back to. Along with ourselves, music you might remember from when you were younger, or might even listen to now is nearly, or over a decade old. Where has time gone?

Panic! at the Disco’s Pretty. Odd. –

In March of 2008, Pop/Rock band Panic! at the Disco released its second studio album; Pretty. Odd. This album hadn’t obtained upmost recognition though, for the only thing people usually remember it for is their popular song; Nine In the Afternoon, which made it to the fifty-first spot on the billboard charts when released. Even though it was successful,  it didn’t yet top their most popular song; I Write Sins Not Tragedies at spot seven.

Usher & lil’ Jon’s Yeah! –

Without a doubt, nearly everybody has heard this song. Released in 2004, this song is commonly played at weddings, and dances. Although many people can’t stand to listen to the song by themselves, they somehow still know all of the words and manage to get down to it at a gathering.

Plain White T’s Hey There Delilah –

In 2007, this song was among the most successful on the charts. This romantic love song captured the hearts of many as it told the tale of a guy with a girlfriend he was in love with, (by the name of Delilah, obviously.) and her going to a school in New York City. The couple is unable to see each other, and has a long distance relationship that their friends and family doubt. The singer declares his love for Delilah in a typical, but romantic way that would make you want to call your significant other just to say “I love you.”

Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie –

In 2006, Shakira dropped the song that she is still known for to this day. The song topped charts on the Billboard, and still has a ton of people singing along to this day when she makes it onto the radio for a throwback tune. It’s difficult to think that this song came out nearly eleven years ago!
