back at ya, usher.

Courtesy of the Rolling Stone back page (Kanye/50 cover), these were the top 10 singles for the week of September 18th, 1997:

1. Mariah Carey — "Honey"
2. Backstreet Boys — "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)"
3. Usher — "You Make Me Wanna"
4. The Notorious B.I.G. — "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems"
5. LeAnn Rimes — "How Do I Live"
6. Puff Daddy and Faith Evans — "I'll Be Missing You"
7. Spice Girls — "2 Becomes 1"
8. Third-Eye Blind — "Semi-Charmed Life"
9. Aqua — "Barbie Girl"
10. Jewel — "Foolish Games/You Were Meant For Me"

Further confirmation that when I was 10, music was the BEST EVER. Look at that lineup! One of the best Mariah singles in her career, a healthy dose of bubblegummy crackmusic, the Spice Girls teaching 5th graders everywhere about sex, B.I.G. being represented twice, kind of, and a double-dose of Jewel. There is no bad on this list.

Okay, and for the more hip among our readership, here's an actual article saying basically the same thing, except in place of 3EB, there's Radiohead. If you're into that.
