I didn't post a 1997 chart at all last year so I'm fitting one in now.

An apparently unprecedented six new entries in the Top 10, and more 70s
covers than you might have expected. One of the songs that wasn't from
the 70s includes a discussion about Rush.

Playlists are/will be here

1st year uni, just moved from an awful hall to a quieter one and about to
fall in love...

> 04.(NE) Depeche Mode - Barrel Of A Gun


Had forgotten they were still having hits this late.

> 05. (1) LL Cool J - Ain't Nobody


Give me Chaka Khan any day...

> 10.(NE) Eels - Novocaine For The Soul


Odd. Very odd. But very effective. Not something I would normally go for.

> 11. (3) White Town - Your Woman


Bit of Al Bowlly never did anyone any harm. (I think it's from one of his
anyway...)

> 18. (9) Placebo - Nancy Boy


Still a floor filler. We had this on coming home from hospital visiting
earlier today.

A very up and down group but this is an absolute stormer

> 33.(23) Toni Braxton - Un-Break My Heart


Fast version preferred

> 34.(21) Madonna - Don't Cry For Me Argentina


Remember seeing Evita in the large lecture theatre, which was used for film
club in the evening.

> 43.(32) The Prodigy - Breathe


See no 65...

> 48.(33) Suede - Saturday Night


Odd one - had loved their earlier stuff but this felt a bit like treading
water. Plus it sounds a lot like Song for Guy!

> 65.(56) The Prodigy - Firestarter


One of the most popular on the student union jukebox. Never really liked it
at the time, but like it more now.

> 67.(46) The Beautiful South - Don't Marry Her


And here's one which gives every DJ a heart attack when they press play...

> 83. (85) Underworld Born Slippy


Everywhere. Posters from the film on every wall. Even though the film
drops the key line which makes the title make sense...

Still one of my favourite films though. Haven't seen the 2nd yet but will
get round to it when spending less time on M4.

> 100.(91) Prodigy Out Of Space


Everywhere. Didn't realise it was a big sample until I heard it at a club
night.

Only these 5 I recall, and even then, only one from the time.

Their last top 10 hit was as late as 2005 and their last top 40 hit was
in 2009. However even by 1997 they were selling mainly to their fanbase.

>> 11. (3) White Town - Your Woman

Yup, the sampled track is 'My Woman' by Al Bowlly.

>> 33.(23) Toni Braxton - Un-Break My Heart

This one was also released in a faster paced remix version.

Which one?

As I said earlier, the original versions list would be very 70s-oriented:

12.(NE) OTT - Let Me In
19.(NE) Audioweb - Bankrobber
23.(12) Gabrielle - Walk On By
27.(11) George Michael - /I Can't Make You Love Me
32.(NE) Newton - Sometimes When We Touch
58.(NE) Donell Jones - Knocks Me Off My Feet
61.(55) Dunblane - Knockin' On Heaven's Door/Throw These Guns Away
66.(57) Celine Dion - All By Myself
89. (RE) Artist Betcha By Golly Wow

07.(NE) Apollo 440 - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Dub
[based on 'Ain't Talkin Bout Love' by Van Halen]
20. (4) The Orb - Toxygene
[remix of the similarly-titled track by Jean-Michel Jarre]
53.(35) Lisa Stansfield/Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - People Hold On
(Bootleg Mixes)
[extensively samples 'Professional Widow']
68.(41) Nas - Street Dreams
[Samples a Eurythmics song - you can probably guess which one - which
means Annie Lennox has two writing credits in this chart]

I thought that was possible but I also thought that was one of the ones
you'd be more likely to have heard since.

Couldn't it be both? :)

Fair point. I think I was thinking there were some songs that were big
at the time but little-heard now, like the No Mercy or Depeche Mode
tracks, so if anyone said they knew those songs I'd assume they knew
them from then.
I suppose the closest we get in your list is Blueboy.
