In this blog series we are going back in time and looking at great songs that came out during a particular year. This month we are taking a trip down memory lane and looking at some of the best songs that came out in 2007...
Klaxons - Golden Skans
It was hard to go anywhere in 2007 without hearing 'Golden Skans' blasting out from the speakers. NME voted the song as the best single of the year, and the album that it featured on, 'Myths of the New Future', won The Mercury Prize for best album the same year.
Linkin Park - What I've Done
The album that spawned the song, 'Minutes To Midnight', went to number one in 28 of the countries in which it was released.
M.I.A. - Paper Planes

LCD Soundsystem - "All my friends"
Even though this song had success, (it was picked by journalists of both Mojo magazine and the Pitchfork Media music site as the best track of 2007), LCD Soundsystem never made a video for it.
Arctic Monkeys - Brianstorm
It is the opening track on their second album, 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' and is a noticeable change of sound from their previous offerings. The track is featured in the video game Guitar Hero 5.
Kanye West - Stronger
'Stronger' was a top ten single in ten countries and topped the charts in the UK upon its release. It also won a Grammy Award for 'Best Rap Solo Performance' at the 50th Grammy Awards.
