Going old school, Slackers!

It’s been a while since I did a single year chart recap. This week I chose 1987 - and it is an interesting time for music, and when sitcoms ruled the Nielsen ratings.

The Billboard Hot 100 for 1987 was a big year for a number of artists that we now think of as legendary. Bon Jovi & Whitesnake both had breakout hits after years of plugging away. George Michael had his first taste of solo success after the demise of WHAM!. And the youngest Jackson, Janet, became an absolute superstar in her own right. But the TOP song for 1987 was a goofy, gimmicky song, that was still amazingly catchy!

Plus, artists like Huey Lewis & the News, Fleetwood Mac, and the usual chart toppers - Michael Jackson, Prince, and Madonna - all had major hits. And we have to show a little love for Crowded House!

Over on the TV charts, unsurprisingly, the NBC Thursday night sitcom block ruled the top 10 - The Cosby Show, A Different World, Cheers, and Night Court was quite the formidable lineup!
