Throwing it Back 10 Years

in Features by

With 2017 already in full swing, there is much to remember from previous years. In 2016, there were many memorable moments, songs, movies and events we will never forget. The start of a new year is a great time to look back on old memories that led people to where they are today. Looking back just 10 years, there are many movies, songs, and events that created memories we still think about.

In 2007, there were tons of movies that came out that everyone loved. One of the animated greats that many of us loved was Shrek the Third. A fascinating movie with a green ogre as the main character, but it still captured many people into watching all three of these movies. Another unforgettable favorite from 2007 is Enchanted. This was a fascinating new take on a movie because half of it is animated. Junior Madeline Benefield said, “Enchanted is my favorite movie because Amy Adams is great in it and I love modern takes on fairytales.”

In 2007, there are still many memorable songs that people still jam out to today even 10 years later. One of the most popular is Umbrella by Rihanna. Although this song came out ten years ago, many people still seem to sing along to it when it starts pouring rain outside. Another hit sing-along song is Glamorous by Fergie. Lastly, 10 year later when Girlfriend by Avril Levine comes on, it is hard to resist turning up the radio and signing right along.

Almost exactly 10 years ago in Jan. 2007 was the Super Bowl. The 2007 Super Bowl was a game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears. The halftime show of the game was a performance by Prince. In the end, the Colts pulled out the victory, winning 29-17.

It seems like iPhones have been around forever, but they were actually released only ten years ago. In Jan. 2007, Apple introduced their first iPhones ever.

Although 10 years feels like forever ago, some things that we really love always stick around and leave behind good memories.
