The top ten tracks on Pitchfork's Top 100 Tracks of 2007 list:

  • Rihanna, “Umbrella,” Good Girl Gone Bad
  • The New Pornographers, “Myriad Harbour,” Challengers
  • The National, “Mistaken for Strangers,” Boxer
  • Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, “La Costa Brava,” Living With the Living
  • Arcade Fire, “Keep the Car Running,” Neon Bible
  • M.I.A., “Boys, Kala
  • Feist, “1 2 3 4,” The Reminder
  • Jens Lekman, “A Postcard to Nina,” Night Falls Over Kortedala
  • Spoon, “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb,” Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
  • Justice, “D.A.N.C.E.,”

That's in no particular order. I don't really believe in ordinal rankings and have no idea what it would mean to claim that "D.A.N.C.E." is 'better' than "A Postcard to Nina."
