Subject: 1997: The Year in Music

Written By: XYkid on 12/02/13 at 9:24 pm

Hey guys, sorry for not making a new thread sooner, I was away for thanksgiving and I just got home today.
Anyway, 1997, what an interesting year for music. This seems to be a year a lot of people either loved or hated when it came to music. Teen pop began to emerge and the music became more upbeat and pop-y around this time.

To give a few examples, the Spice Girls released their debut album in the United States that year. They were already a hit in their native Europe the previous year, but none of their music charted in North America until the following year. Ironically though, the music video for this song was filmed in the Mojave Desert of California in the Summer of 1996.

It was also a big year for the group Third Eye Blind, whose self-titled, debut album was released and produced several hit single, including this one which peaked at number 4 on the Hot 100. Funny story, I have so many good early childhood memories of hearing this song, and it wasn't until earlier this year I realised the song was about drugs and sex. Oh the innocence of childhood...

The Wallflowers' "One Headlight" was a huge hit that year, particularly on the rock charts; nonetheless, it received plenty of radio airplay that year.

I don't think this was a particularly great year for music in comparison to 91, 92, and 1993...but Semi Charmed life and One Headlight proved to be massive hits with staying power. They still get regular airplay on pop music stations in my area.

Ska was still in the charts back in 1997. No Doubt and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones were huge

Radiohead released OK Computer that year, which was a good album but a tad overrated

Bittersweet Symphony was another big hit

Country artist LeAnn Rimes, who had entered the music scene a year earlier at age 13 with the album Blue (which helped her win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist), had a huge hit on the pop charts in 1997 with "How Do I Live", having recorded that one at the age of 14. Trisha Yearwood also recorded her own version of the song (hers was a bigger hit on the country charts than on the pop charts); both versions were hits simultaneously. In fact, over the next few years, lots of country artists were notably crossing over into pop.

I loved her Blue album that came out that year. Edit: Actually, the album came out in 1996, but this song didn't peak until early 1997. She released her album Songs of Inspiration later in 1997.

Here are two songs a friend and I listened to over and over again that summer. The first one is Freshmen by The Verve Pipe.  I thought this song was about abortion because of the lyric "stop a baby's breath." My friend thought it was about addiction because of the lyric " A weeks worth of  Valium." 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umEXpGHc0E 

The next song is "Sunny Came Home" by Shawn Colvin. My friend loved this video so much that he VHS taped it and watched it over and over.

"Song for Athene" (also known as "Alleluia. May Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest") is a musical composition by British composer John Tavener with lyrics by Mother Thekla, an Orthodox nun, which is intended to be sung a cappella by a four-part (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) choir. It is Tavener's best known work, having been performed by the Westminster Abbey Choir conducted by Martin Neary at the funeral service of Diana, Princess of Wales, on 6 September 1997 as her cortège departed from Westminster Abbey.

Both of these songs were released in mid 1996 and became popular in early 1997:

Lovefool - The Cardigans (US Billboard Hot 100 Airplay - #2)

I remember that one very well. It was all over the radio back then.


I also remember "B!tch", "Barely Breathing", "MMMbop", "All Mixed Up", "If You Could Only See", and "How Bizarre" from your previous post. O0

I think 1997 might be my favorite year of the '90s. It was so awesome! I hope 2017 is just as rad!


1997 is not my favourite year for pop songs but 'How Bizarre' by OMC (Otara Millionaires Club) is great. Sadly the lead singer passed away in 2010.

"Make You Feel My Love" is a song written by Bob Dylan that appeared on his 1997 album Time Out of Mind. It was first recorded and released commercially by Billy Joel, under the title "To Make You Feel My Love", before Dylan's version appeared later that same year. It has since been covered by numerous performers and has proved to be a commercial success for recording artists such as Adele, Garth Brooks, Bryan Ferry and Kelly Clarkson.

That song was already popular by the end of 1996, it just peaked in early 1997.

"Love Shine a Light" was the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed by Katrina and the Waves as the 1997 Eurovision entrant by the UK and the lead single from the album Walk on Water. It is the group's biggest success since "Walking on Sunshine" 12 years earlier.

I was just thinking of that, as this past weekend marked 18 years since this event. The track, entitled "Candle In The Wind '97", sold numerous copies over the next several weeks/months.

In 1997, Billy Joel covered Bob Dylan's " Make You Feel My Love" for his compilation album Greatest Hits Volume III. It was released as the first single from the album and reached number 50 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Joel's single pre-dated Bob Dylan's release of the song by two months.

Oh yes, by the Verve.

The entire version, which not many stations play, since it's just about 6 minutes long.

I remember "Santeria"; lead vocalist Bradley Nowell had passed away the previous year, but the band continued to remain popular through their self-titled album, which had been released shortly after his death. :\'(

I liked the the Mousse T's Club mix '96 of Mr President "Coco Jamboo" more than the original version.

This song was originally released in 1979 by Ian Hunter. But in 1997, The Presidents Of The United States re-released it for The Drew Carey Show. It was used as the show's theme song and appeared on the accompanying soundtrack. It is also used at many of the city's home sporting events. Here is "Cleveland Rocks".
