Are You Jimmy Ray?

This was one of the better love ballads of the 90s. I never watched Dawson's Creek but I hear that is the show it was featured on. Anyway this song always reminds me of the week I spent staying with my grandparents that summer.

I love that Edwin McCain song, it makes me cry every time I hear it. Interestingly,  he said he wrote it after he broke up with his girlfriend, as like a promise to the next girl he will be a better man than what he was before.

There sure was. I remember it quite well. Brian Setzer, who fronted the rockabilly band Stray Cats in the 1980s, formed a new band called the Brian Setzer Orchestra in the 1990s, and in '98 he had a hit with "Jump, Jive & Wail." When that song was climbing the charts, I was in my first semester of college.

Australian-born singer Natalie Imbruglia may likely be remembered that year for her hit song "Torn", which was a huge hit in the early part of that year... but she had a follow-up single that year, with "Wishing I Was There":

This one wasn't as big a hit as "Torn", however (at least in the US).

Man, I'm having a fit in this thread. This is bringing back so many memories for me. When I saw "When the Lights Go Out" by Five, I almost had a spasm. I love that song so so much, and it reminds me of 7th grade and one of my first boyfriends, Sammy. I was 11, he was 12 and Sammy was this big white guy who looked like he belonged in Five or some other boy band with the vinyl coat and spiky hair and one hoop earring, and the first cd he gave me was a Five import. (His big brother worked at Sam Goody in the mall) I had asked for Jackson Five, I got plain Five and that was "our" song. Thank you for posting it and bringing back some good memories for me of Sammy and Spanish class.

Ugh, I miss that kid. He was so nice!

"Where Are You?" by Imaani was the United Kingdom entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1998, held in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The song was composed by Scott English, Phil Manikiza and Simon Stirling. The song is a fairly up-tempo ballad and describes a woman who is trying to find her lover.

"I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" is a power ballad performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith for the 1998 film Armageddon. Written by Diane Warren, the song debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 (the first #1 for the band after 28 years together). It is one of three songs performed by the band for the film, the other two being "What Kind of Love Are You On" and "Sweet Emotion." The song stayed at number one for four weeks from September 5 to September 26, 1998. The song also stayed at number 1 for several weeks in several other countries. In the UK, the song peaked at number four, becoming Aerosmith's highest charting song in the UK, where it was the 17th best-selling single of 1998, and has sold over a million copies.

"Songbird" is a popular song by Fleetwood Mac. It first appeared on the 1977 album Rumours and was released as the B-side of the single "Dreams". It is one of four songs written solely by Christine McVie on the album. She would frequently sing the song at concerts.

Eva Cassidy's version was released in 1998 on her posthumous compilation album of the same name Songbird. Despite being released two years after her death from melanoma, the album eventually reached number 1 in the UK in 2001.

"Immortality" is a single from Celine Dion's album Let's Talk About Love. It was released on June 8, 1998 outside the United States. The Bee Gees can be heard on the background vocals, and are credited as special guests on/for the recording. It was composed especially for Dion by brothers Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, and Maurice Gibb, the members of the Bee Gees, and was produced by Walter Afanasieff. The song was a commercial success reaching number 2 in Austria and Germany, number 4 in Europe, number 5 in the United Kingdom, and number 8 in Switzerland. In Brazil, the Cuca mixes became very popular. However, the track was never released as a single in the United States. Sony Music Entertainment decided to release "To Love You More" there (in the USA) instead.
