After days and hours spent narrowing 5,000 songs down to 50, I present to you the 50 greatest songs from my college years. If you graduated from college in 2010 (like myself), I hope this list speaks to you. If not, I think this list pretty much sums up the end of 2006 to May 2010 perfectly – which is a trip down memory lane for most of us twenty somethings. The list covers everything – from the start of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Ke$ha – to the end of Lil Wayne’s popularity and Kanye West’s happiness. Enjoy!

Hi I’m Sam. I made this website in 2011 and it’s still here! I'm the author of the humorous self-help book AVERAGE IS THE NEW AWESOME. I like pizza, French fries, barre, spin, more pizza, more French fries, and buying clothes. Follow me on twitter & Instagram at @samanthamatt1... and on this site's meme account on IG at @averagepeopleproblems. OKAY GREAT THANKS BYE.


  1. This list makes me really happy. I also Graduated in 2010 and this pretty much sums up college. I think Brit Brit deserved to make the list, though. As I was reading through my only thought was “where is crank dat?”, especially after seeing the other Soulja Boy song. Glad it got a video.

  2. I debated between making “Call on Me” or “Crank Dat” the number one song literally for days before I actually posted this list. As for Brit, I only chose songs from my iTunes library and completely forgot I had to delete “Gimme More” (and others) because it was one of the many “corrupt” files on my computer. I might have to add it to the list… haha
