The Official Charts Company tracked songs from June 1 to August 31, 1997. They compiled a list of the top 40 singles and albums. Several popular songs and albums were charted, including the chart-topper “Summertime.”
The official tally also included a few other notable achievements, including a song that sold more copies of an album than a movie. “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele was the 800th video to hit the top of the Billboard charts. It’s not surprising, then, that “Summertime” was the most popular single of the year.
Despite the fact that Oasis’s Morning Glory was the year’s biggest seller, it wasn’t the most popular. The album sold over a million copies in the UK, but it didn’t do well in the United States. It was the best-selling album of the decade in Germany, though.
The Nolan Method ranking system used a point system for Billboard chart performance. It included the most popular song of the year in the top three slots, which were “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele, “Summertime” by Oasis, and “Chandelier” by the Lumineers.

Events that led up to Princess Diana’s death
During a trip to Paris in August 1997, Princess Diana was killed in a car accident. Her death shocked the British public and the world. She was known for her charitable work. She opened Britain’s first AIDS ward in London and visited people in Zimbabwe and Nepal with leprosy.
The accident happened after Diana and Fayed left a hotel in Paris around midnight. When the Mercedes-Benz approached a tunnel, Paul lost control. It flipped over, causing Fayed to be killed instantly. Diana was also injured, having a cut on her head, a dislocated arm, and a tear in her left pulmonary vein.
A man who saw the crash, Dr. Frederic Mailliez, arrived at the scene. He administered first aid to both Diana and Fayed. But neither regained consciousness.
In the aftermath of the accident, police launched a criminal investigation, naming it Operation Paget. In the morning, they declared Diana dead. The only survivor was Fayed’s bodyguard.
The British public is still in mourning, and there are a number of theories surrounding the accident. Some suggest that the royal family orchestrated the crash, while others claim that Diana feared an attack.
The crash occurred in the early morning hours on August 31, 1997. Princess Diana was traveling with Fayed, the son of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed. Dodi was drunk at the time.
