’80s MUSIC / 1987 – Faithfulness

Let’s kick this one off with a few hard rock / metal tunes!

Bon Jovi – Wanted Dead or Alive (1987)

Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar on Me (1987)

Guns N’ Roses – Welcome to the Jungle (1987)

Paul Lekakis – Boom Boom (Let’s Go Back to My Room) (1987)

If you originally thought that this one was a Vengaboys song then punch yourself in the nads really hard!

Is liking PSB tunes a sin? I think not!

Pet Shop Boys – It’s a Sin (1987)

Pet Shop Boys – What Have I Done to Deserve This? (1987)

In 2008, did you know that there was a trolling trend on YouTube called “Rickrolling”? Pranksters used fake titles, thumbnail pics, and links leading this song by Rick Astley! Haha… I did fall prey to a few of them!

Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up (1987)

Salt-N-Pepa – Push It (1987)

Two more from awesome Montreal band “The Box”:

The Box – Ordinary People & Closer Together (1987)

Closing my eyes, I can almost feel back in the ’80s, no responsibilities, a time filled with dreams and possibilities…

New Order – True Faith (1987)

Again, your girly side cries for this:

Belinda Carlisle – Heaven is a Place on Earth (1987)

Tiffany – I Think We’re Alone Now (1987 cover)

You just can’t get enough of Depeche Mode:

Depeche Mode – Never Let Me Down Again (1987)

Depeche Mode – Strangelove (1987)

Nah, Europe was not a one hit wonder with “The Final Countdown”. In fact, this next one actually peaked higher in the charts…

Europe – Carrie (1987)

Heart – Alone (1987)

Icehouse – Electric Blue (1987)

I’d be slapped if I didn’t include the Inner Circle hit, later known as the iconic “Cops” theme song:

Inner Circle – Bad Boys (1987)

Lou Gramm – Midnight Blue (1987)

Midnight Oil – Beds Are Burning (1987)

Madonna – La Isla Bonita (1987)
