Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #146 – “See You Again,” from Furious 7

 

146. “See You Again,” from Furious 7

And there it is.

Half of you were thinking it would go way higher and the other half who know me probably thought it wasn’t gonna show up at all. Well, surprise. Here we are.

Here’s my issue with the song — it’s not touching. It doesn’t make me cry. It’s a really good hook and just an okay rest of it. But it’s the catchiness of the hook that fake Andy Samberg sings that keeps it on the list for me. There’s a good beat here and the hook is great. And for better or worse, people definitely remember this one really well because of that creepy CGI Paul Walker ending where they drive off in opposite directions. I’m not gonna fight it. It’s catchy.
