1987 in music

Twenty-five years ago (OMG, it's been 25 years?!) The Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian" topped the Billboard 100.

Also quite popular, Jody Watley's "Looking for a New Love":

And there were those Jackson siblings, Michael Jackson, with "Bad"...

and Janet Jackson's "Control."
Madonna, Genesis, Bon Jovi, Peter Gabriel, and Huey Lewis and the News were also big that year, as were Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. (I am so ashamed.)

1987 was the year that gave us "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" by Wang Chung and Bruce Willis singing "Respect Yourself." (Shudder.)

And you could not go to a frat party without hearing Billy Idol's "Mony Mony." ("I said yeah, YEAH, yeah, YEAH, yeah, YEAH, yeah, YEAH, yeah." Keg!)

Yup, hard to believe it's been 25 years.
