Subject: Describe The year 2007

Written By: the2001 on 09/05/15 at 6:17 pm

So the classic 2000s was done by this time, and 2007 stands on its own as this weird
period. What comes to your mind when you think off 2007?, aside from Brittney Spears shaving her head.

I find to be a good year. It was the year when I first discovered YouTube. And it was really amazing when I started visiting them. I wish YouTube was like that from 2007 to early 2011, before Google+ came.

2007 was easily the definitive year of the late 2000s.  Even though it was certainly not the 2010s yet, I felt like this was the first year that felt truly modern and removed from my childhood era.  This was the second full year that I used Wikipedia, as well as the first that YouTube seemed to be everywhere.  Web videos in general, actually, were much more common and less laggy than they were earlier in the decade.  Coming from San Diego, the early part of the year was devastating, due to a last-minute playoffs defeat by the Patriots during the one season we should have won the Superbowl.  A lot of notable films came out, like The Simpsons Movie, Superbad, Blades of Glory, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  A lot of people from my high school class already had Facebook coming into ninth grade that August, though I wouldn't get my account until November 2008.  Musically, there was still a lot of crappy snap music on the radio like Walk It Out and Crank That, but it was also one of the better years for indie rock with albums such as Neon Bible, For Emma, Forever Ago; Strawberry Jam, and In Rainbows.  Seventh Generation gaming had also really taken off, with many considering this the best year in gaming ever, though I personally think the early-mid 2000s were far stronger.

Even though I wouldn't consider 2007 my favorite year for media as a whole, it was still a highly memorable and enjoyable time overall, and certainly much more exciting than the 2010s in general.  If there was one time in my life I wish I could return to and relive, knowing what I know now, it would be the fall of 2007.  Looking back, I can't believe most of the year is already as close to the 90s as present day.

Honestly, it's pretty common for groundbreaking services and technology to truly catch on after at least a few years.  New things take time to establish their reputations, and aren't guaranteed to be a success.  If anything, YouTube became massive a lot more quickly than things like Facebook (introduced 2003, popular by the 2006/2007 school year), iPhones (introduced 2007, not popular until the 2009/2010 school year), Wikipedia (introduced early 2001, popular by 2005), or the World Wide Web (launched 1991, not that popular until several years later).


I would say 2008 was the definitive year of the late 2000s


I disagree, I think 2008 was the twilight of 2000s culture, no pun intended.  For one thing, it was a far less memorable year for music than 2007, as post-grunge and pop punk were declining in significance while urban was starting to grow dry, but Lady Gaga wouldn't become popular until the following year.  Memorable independent releases were also in fairly short supply, despite Vampire Weekend's debut.  The gaming industry also didn't have as many landmark titles as the previous year, nor did cinema have too many definitive films either besides Iron Man and The Dark Knight.  Although the Great Recession and election of Obama occurred during the second half of the year, I see those events more as marking the end of 2000s culture in general, rather than as the late 2000s' defining events, even though 2000s culture wouldn't completely subside until early 2010.  As a whole, I guess I just don't have as many immediate memories of 2008 the way I do of 2007.

Hehe, well that type of music is so bad it deserves that description.  Though actually, most people who know me in person notice that I use a lot of casual slang; I would have totally fit in with the 80s crowd in that sense, not just because of my taste in music and film!

In the tech/geek community, YouTube was big in 2006, as was Facebook.

2007 had a slightly different, more evolved feel to it than 2004-06, but overall was still core '00s in my opinion.  In fact I would consider it the quintessential year of the decade. One thing that really stands out about the year is the music.  It was a lot more memorable than 2006 yet a lot more homogeneous. It was probably the peak of commercialized '00s hip-hop, with songs like Soulja Boy Tell 'Em being the epitome of the era.  It was also the year that the financial crisis and coming recession was in the news but it wasn't yet affecting everyday Americans, as unemployment was still low and the stock market still soaring.  TV was awesome that year with shows like Lost, 24, Prison Break, etc.  Fashion was all about emo and scene kids that year.

Nancy Pelosi becoming the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives.

George W. Bush beginning the troop surge in Iraq.

Kevin Federline being someone people still cared about.

Prince putting on one of the greatest Super Bowl halftime shows ever.

YouTube fully "arriving" in the mainstream when CNN held Democratic and Republican presidential primary debates featuring questions posted on the video site.

The last full year of MySpace as a major cultural entity before it began to be overtaken by Facebook.

The height of the steroid controversy in baseball as Barry Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's home run record and the report by former Senator George Mitchell is released.

LeBron James makes it to his first NBA Finals after an incredible performance in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons, but is swept by Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.

The "Spygate" controversy surrounds the New England Patriots, who then finish the first undefeated NFL regular season since the 1972 Miami Dolphins.

The late 2000's recession begins in December 2007.

Why? Smosh, Fred, every Numa Numa lyrics video and every Mario plush video were all the rage in late 2000s YouTube and I loved it. I loved of how pre-2010 YouTube videos were awesome and that it wasn't inspired for them to get famous.

I agree 2007 was far more interesting than 2006 musically.  It was the year of catchy ringtone rap as well as scene bands like All Time Low.  It was a great year for TV and was a revolutionary year for technology.

As for gaming, I'll remember 2007 as the year that put the final nail in the coffin for classic PC gaming, which had been in decline since peaking in 2004.  After the game Crysis, game developers en masse began developing for consoles first and then adapted their games to PC.  Previously, it was PC first and then the games were ported to console.

2007 was like the pre-electropop year when it comes to music. This was probably the first full year in my life I was into the pop culture of music being 11 years old at the time. These were some of my favorites from the time. Probably because I was in middle school listening to these with my friends so you may not have liked what I'm posting here. I believe these were the early influences or predecessors of the great music that was coming in 2009 & 2010.

Yeah, club songs with cheesy dances like "Soulja Boy Tell 'Em", "Ay Bay Bay", and "Party Like A Rock Star" are the kind of songs that define 2007.  The year really stands out when it comes to that kind of music.  2007 also gave us the Cupid Shuffle which has stood the test of time.  I guess you can say in a way that music was a prerequisite to the great dance music of late 2008-2010.  It definitely wasn't electropop though nor was there much electronic dance music influence period that year.  It was still called techno and you didn't hear it much outside of gay clubs.

Yeah, I don't see how songs like Crank That or Low bridged us into the electropop era of 2009-2012.  Those songs had extremely minimalist production, repetitive hooks, and a complete lack of melody.  They fit much better alongside crunk/snap songs from the 2005-2006 period like Laffy Taffy, Stay Fly, and Lean wit It, Rock wit It.  By even early 2009, that type of style had become immediately outdated or had changed noticeably.  Even though Soulja Boy had a top 5 hit that year with Kiss Me Thru the Phone, the track has a pretty sizable electro influence that's absent on the spontaneous steel drum loop of Crank That, plus a melodic, non-repetitive chorus.

Ok thanks for correcting me there, I think it was the style of dance I was thinking about, my nostalgia blind for those 2007 songs were in the way of my argument, and yes prerequisite to the great dance music of late 2008-2010 sounds much better.

My brother was in high school in 07 and he was all about emo and scene so when I think of 2007, I think of Paramore, choppy hair with a streak of some crazy color, emo music in general, scene girls and their weird way of speaking, people cutting themselves, Hot Topic, etc.

But apart from that, I remember Shoes (the viral vid), Jonas Brothers, Soulja Boy, VT Shooting, Superbad, crazy B. Spears and the VH1 dating reality shows.

Youtube was already fairly big in 2006.

Why? Smosh, Fred, every Numa Numa lyrics video and every Mario plush video were all the rage in late 2000s YouTube and I loved it. I loved of how pre-2010 YouTube videos were awesome and that it wasn't inspired for them to get famous. Even though I would rather go back to when YouTube was cool in 2007 to early 2011, before they had Google+.

All of those were still comparatively low quality and pre-HD. They were only just established early youtube entertainment.



More like modern 2000's ;D

And modern 90s by that logic.

If I had to choose one year of the 00s to go back to, it would have been 2007. I was 17, an age that I wish I could have stayed at for at least a few years. The teen girls were at their peak, I was old enough to drive, life had potential basically. The fact that I wasn't able to feel like I made the most of it is why I feel so nostalgic for it. I remember a video game I was and am still into, Half-Life 2, the developers released the (what would become) final episode for it, even though they said they would release another.

Also I just wish I could go back and smell that 2007 air again, I wonder if it would smell noticeably different to now? Even small details like the designs major companies used would contribute to the atmosphere of 2007, little things that you forget until you see them again. Anyway, in terms of television, Smallville, Supernatural, Lost, My Name is Earl were all shows I watched back then. And then the silly stuff like Beauty and the Geek, The Simple Life, Ugly Betty, were just guilty pleasures I had when I had nothing else to do.

The rap culture was changing, the likes of 50 cent was going down and these new school kids like Soulja boy who has already been mentioned was coming up, I remember him being new like it was yesterday, I remember thinking what nonsense it was, neither did I like 50 cent, I still consider him new school, I like 90s hardcore rap myself. Also in terms of pop music, which I myself am not into although it is a good way to mark the eras, a lot of the current established stars were coming up like Rihanna, Lady gaga, Neo and about a thousand others.

But yeah, that is a long rambling disjointed and nostalgia driven post, but oh well, guess I had to get it off my chest.

This year some bad things happend. First my father committed suicide. I don't even know why but he told my uncle over the phone. I wasn't as close as I should have been. Looking back I get all scared that my abandoning our relationship was part of it. Later that year something traumatic happend to me. I am sick for life because of this. I mean I feel faint at some point every day for one.

For me, the feel for 2007, and to a larger extent the mid '00s can be summed up in two words: big and shiny.

Girls decorated their Myspace pages with all kinds of loud, garish fonts, backgrounds, and effects. Fashion also seemed to have a garish feel. I remember a lot of big, shiny accessories being popular, such as high heels, big purses, shiny plastic headbands and gigantic earrings.

Oh, and boys still wore their oversized shirts and hoodies in 2007, too.

This is around the time that tighter-fit t-shirts with shorter sleeves became more popular for guys.
