It seems years ending in "7" have the most good songs?

I think 1992 had more, so I'll check on it later. Either way there were some really great ones out in 1997,
like these 12, that aren't in any order, and with 2 extra since that year gave more than 10 ...

Marching To Mars- Sammy Hagar
Say You'll Be There- Spice Girls
Turn Back Time - Aqua
Return Of The Mack - Mark Morrison
Ready to Go - Republica
Barely Breathing - Duncan Sheik
The Best of Love - Michael Bolton (Yes, even M.Bolton had a good one out that year)
Lakini's Juice - Live
Can you feel the Sunshine? - TJ Davis
You and the Mona Lisa - Shawn Colvin
Quit Playing Games With My Heart - Backstreet Boys
High - Lighthouse Family
