Top 10 Songs of 1998

1990's Lists

I chronicled my opinion on this putrid year of music recently with my albums list, so this time let's see if we can view the glass half full (though to make an argument that it's anywhere more than 10% full is tough). 1998 did give us my #1 Guilty Pleasure of the 90s in "Frozen" as well as my #1 Greatest Electronica Song of the 90s, so at least there was some semblance of good music put out this year.

I need help finding a song, its driving me absolutely crazy. Female vocalist from the 90's. Fairly rowdy rocking song, yet melodic. A piece of the chorus was on a Dawson's Creek episode, same episode that featured Billie Myers' "Kiss the Rain"....If I remember correctly, and there are no guarantees, the chorus contained the words "save my life tonight" or something like that, maybe the chorus ended with the word "home"....I DO remember the chorus having a distinctive rhythm guitar hook, sort of a pronounced "step-up"...can't find it in Sass Jordan, Meredith Brooks, Melissa Etheridge....HELP! Thanks for all replies :lol:
