Subject: What are songs that you feel best exemplify the "vibe" of 1997?

Could be hits, could be underground, but it has to be a song released in 1997 that you feel captures the vibe of the year.

"Candle in the Wind 1997"
The song by Bernie Taupin and Elton John, a re-written and re-recorded version of their 1974 song "Candle in the Wind". It was released on 13 September 1997 as a tribute single to the late Diana, Princess of Wales, with the global proceeds from the song going towards Diana's charities. In many countries, it was pressed as a double A-side with "Something About the Way You Look Tonight". The lyrics were written by Bernie Taupin, and the song produced by Sir George Martin.

Honestly...I vividly remember 60 of the songs on this list. That's how memorable and changeful 97 was.
