Music Monday — 1997

30 Jan

As part of my ongoing celebration for my 30th birthday, I am highlighting some popular songs from throughout my years.  Songs were picked based off of a list of Grammy award winners and Billboard Top 100.  Then, I chose my favorites to highlight.  

Year: 1997

Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Music Selections:

  1. Spice Girls “Wannabe” — Number 1 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 during my birthday week.  It’s a guilty pleasure.  As much as my friends and I made fun of this song, we know all the words.  I’ve even been known to do this song for karaoke, complete with interpretive dance in the middle.  It’s a guilty pleasure.
  2. Jars of Clay’s Much Afraid — One of my favorite bands of all time.  I saw them when they opened for Michael W. Smith right after “Flood” was released.  This was their second album and I think I loved it even more than their debut.
  3. Radiohead’s OK Computer — Overall an amazing album.  Such mood music.  This is an album that fills me with images and emotions as I listen.  It’s not just karaoke music.
  4. The Wallflowers “One Headlight” — I loved this album and especially this song.  Since then, I have sporadically followed The Wallflowers and then solo Jakob Dylan.  But I get really excited whenever this comes on the radio or my iPod shuffle.
  5. Fiona Apple “Criminal” — How much do you love this music video?  It is iconic of the late 90s.  I can’t get this out of my head if I hear it.
