A decade of college music vibes according to a FRANK team member

Spread the love

As this decade comes to an end, it’s fun to look back on how much has changed and how much we’ve grown. So, I thought it would be fun to take a dance down memory lane and remember some of the most popular songs over the past 10 years.


The Black Eyed Peas – Boom Boom Pow.

While topping the charts, they also provided me us with the insult of the year, “I’m so 3008 you’re so 2000 and late”. 


Ke$ha – Tik Tok

I’ll admit this song *might* still be on my road trip playlist. But can you blame me? I dare you to listen and not want to sing or dance along.


Adele – Rolling in the Deep

Am I the only one who belted this out wishing that instead of a tone-deaf and flat, I actually sounded amazing? You know, the fantasy where you sing karaoke and everyone is completely blown away. No? Just me?



Gotye – Somebody that I used to know

I’m sure this song had different meanings for different people. For me, it felt like a breakup song. Not like anyone has ever broken-up with me… moving on.


Mackelmore – Thrift Shop

Not only is the song catchy and liked by all (obviously, it was after all the best song of the year). BUT even my dad was even a big fan. That’s saying something since he’s not generally one to be a fan of pop or rap music.


Pharrell Williams – Happy

Although I don’t have any specific memories tied to this song, I can’t help but sing and bop around. The title tells it like is it – it’s impossible to listen to this song without a smile on your face. 


Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk!

Say my name you know who I am! Now, this is a party song! In 2015 you could hear this song echoing from the club and every birthday party no matter where you were or who you were with. Songs like this make being stuck in rush hour traffic a little more bearable. 


Justin Bieber – Love Yourself

I’ll admit, I was diagnosed with Bieber Fever many years ago. And The Biebs didn’t disappoint with this one. I know everyone pretends not to like him, but deep down, I know you do!


Ed Sheeran – Shape of You

I’ve spent many nights dancing to this song with friends. Click the link ^ you won’t be able to resist the beat.


Drake – God’s Plan

Drake has come a long way since his Degrassi wheelchair days. I’m not always his biggest fan, but one thing I am a fan of is his charitable ways. For example, he used this music video as an excuse to give away almost a million dollars to help out the less fortunate.


Lil Nas Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus – Old Town Road

Unpopular opinion: I just don’t like this song. And trust me, I’ve tried.
