One thought on “1987 – My Top 100 Songs

  1. Now that’s what I’m taking about! 1987 was one of the best ever years for pop music, and between both lists, you’ve got plenty of evidence here to prove it. Huge year for PWL and PSB and so many others. And as always, there are some mystery artists for me (Karel Fialka? Laurent Voulzy?). Great stuff – thanks Ric!
