Playlist Playback: Listen to the Top Songs of March 1998
Where the music industry is concerned, time capsules just don't offer glimpses into years past — they make noise, too.
In 2018, Dua Lipa, Cardi B and Niall Horan continue to serve as some of pop's newest A-listers, but it was only 20 years ago that the charts were host to the likes of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," Janet Jackson's "Together Again" and the consummate '90s heartbreaker "How's It Going To Be" by Third Eye Blind. Ah yes, 1998 was a hell of a year for pop.
So let's not allow it to fall to the wayside.
Apropos of the aughts-defining penchant for nostalgia-kicks, we've collected the Top 20 tracks of March 1998, according to the Billboard Hot 100's archives. And from Savage Garden's "Truly Madly Deeply" to Destiny's Child's "No, No, No," the included tunes will probably make you very glad such records exist. After all, we simply couldn't live without LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live."
