Remembering the Awesomeness That Was 1997

I always look back at 1997 as a favorite year of mine. Back then it was cool to listen to Celine Dion, The Gap was relevant, and in high school, I kicked some major speech-and-debate ass.

And now that the pop culture gods over at The Peterson YouTube channel have created his beyond-awesome compilation, I can fondly smile, laugh, and cringe at the 365 days during which I started to come out of my shell and embrace the pop culture junkie I was slowly becoming. After all, who doesn't love a little nostalgia?

Behold (Don't fret...Savage Garden comes in at the 7-minute mark):

And yes, the Macarena and Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" was from 1996. Get over it.
