1997 was a great year for ambiguous popular songs with dark meanings, with the release of Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind (crystal meth addiction), Brick by Ben Folds Five (teen pregnancy/secret abortion) and of course Freshman by the Verve Pipe. I was a freshman that year — I won’t be held responsible!
