Top 10 Countdown Show Trivia Question

The same year, the movie The Sixth Sense was released starring Bruce Willis as a child psychologist whose patient, Haley Joel Osment, can see ghosts.  It was the second-highest-grossing film of 1999 and was nominated for six Academy Awards.

Song Spotlight

Sixpence None the Richer – Kiss Me

With a name inspired by a passage from the C. S. Lewis book Mere Christianity, this group has received two Grammy Award nominations, one for Best Rock Gospel Album in 1997 and the other for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group in 2000. At this point, the song had only been on the charts for 3 weeks, but Sixpence None the Richer would eventually spend five weeks at #2. In our song spotlight: “Kiss Me” at #21.
