Maybe 1987 doesn’t seem so long ago. For some, it may seem like an eternity. Best part is there was some great music!

“Three Men and a Baby”, “Fatal Attraction” and “Beverly Hills Cop II” were the top three movies at the box office in 1987. Gas was still just under $1 per gallon.

These were the top songs on Billboard Magazine’s year-end chart.

10. Bon Jovi “Livin’ On A Prayer”

9. Bob Seger “Shakedown”

8. Bruce Hornsby and The Range “The Way It Is”
