Popular Songs Of 1987, Vol. 4

Alas, with this post we've come to the end of our '80s flashback series. At least until next year. But don't you worry. This throwback tour is far from over! We'll take a few days off, then we'll explore the Popular Songs of 1977. Yay, disco? Yeah, I know. Me, neither. Enjoy!  ~  JH
