Who feels old?

With every year that passes, it comes the realisation that songs you felt you were bopping along to only a couple of years ago, are actually 10 years old.

Let's have a look at some of them:

1. Rihanna ft Jay Z - Umbrella

This was arguably one of the biggest hits of 2007 and with 8 million copies sold, it's still one of the highest selling singles of all time.

2. Kanye West - Stronger

The first single release off the hugely successful album 'Graduation', Kanye stormed back into the charts with this hit, which went on to #1 in the UK and the US.

3. Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend

Avril burst back onto the scene in 2007 with Girlfriend, which was the first release off her album 'The Best Damn Thing'. She also embarked on a world tour including a performance at Oxegen.

4. Beyonce and Shakira - Beautiful Liar

It was a duet that was exactly how it was expected to be, as two of the biggest female performers in the world at the time got together for this hugely popular hit.

5. Timbaland ft Keri Hilson and DOE - The Way I Are

A real dancefloor filler in 2007, it still remains popular in clubs even 10 years later!

6. Mark Ronson ft Amy Winehouse - Valerie

Amy's star was already well on the rise before 'Valerie', and it shows with her incredible voice range throughout.

7. Soulja Boy - Crank Dat

Don't lie, you all knew the dance to this.

8. Mika - Grace Kelly

An absolute banger to introduce yourself to the big stage, it helped Mika win the BRIT Award for Best Breakthrough Act.

9. Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

As popular as the song was back then, it remains popular with Irish horse racing fans due to jockey Ruby Walsh.

10. 50 Cent ft Justin Timberlake - Ayo Technology

Two big stars from two completely different types of music coming together to record a song, and making it work!
