Hello and welcome back to the Australian Charts number ones survivor series. Last time Kylie took on herself to win 1988's list with I Should Be So Lucky. This time we go to the ARIA #1 Singles list of 1997, where 13 songs made the top position. There were some massive songs at #1 in '97 including the two tribute tracks (where Elton's Double A-Side will play as one until the final should it get there); Spice Girl's carrying over from 1996 with Wannabe, and some quirky jams from Will Smith, Hanson and Aqua to mention a few.

Representing Australia this list are two songs from Savage Garden, and one from Silverchair, returning after posting a #1 which will feature in the list of 1994. These three songs will get the Aussie Safe pass through round one.

So Without further ado:

ARIA #1 Singles of 1997

Image

12. Will Smith - Men In Black
Quite a close first round - some people still saving the Aussies although they are safe first round. Benjamin’s votes helps Wannabe just scrape through to tie with Elton, leaving just Will Smith’s Movie track Men In Black as the round’s eliminee on 5 points.

It was Will Smith’s debut single as a solo artist - previously posting a #1 with DJ Jazzy Jeff in ‘Boom (Shake the Room) in 1993. The Album Big Willie Style peaked at #26 according to Wikipedia,and spawned another top 10 in ‘Gettin Jiggy Wit It’. Will had several more top 20 appearances, including Nod Ya Head (Black Suits Comin’) from the sequel to Men In Black in 2002, and returned to the top spot in 2005 with ‘Switch’

Men in Black sat at #1 for 4 weeks in sep-oct between the tribute songs from Puff Daddy et al and Elton, and #6 on the EOY singles chart. The Soundtrack reached #4, and 45th on the EOY albums chart, behind other soundtracks such as My Best Friend’s Wedding and Romeo + Juliet (2 volumes).

Don’t Speak just edged out Barbie Girl for the safe pass through round 2, finishing on 13 points.

Round 1 Results: (may edit later, updating on phone :) )
Don’t speak 13
Barbie girl 12
Tubthumping 9
I’ll be missing you 9
Doctor jones 8
Mmmbop 7
