    For some reason 1997 (and bits of 98) was an outstanding year for music. It may have been Pop/Rock/Top 40's last real grown up music for young people year. There were beautifully written songs like this one (along with Closing Time, Bittersweet Symphony, Freshmen, Iris) that tackled your feelings along with its mature theme and others that were party songs (Walking On The Sun, Fly, Semi-Charmed Life, Sex and Candy), not in any particular order but music then was really good and really missed.
