1987 Flashback: Thirty Years Of Timeless Music

By: Renee Grant

In 2017, we mark the 30th anniversary of WOGL; we get to share that milestone with some pretty great music!

Think back to 1987, how big was your hair and your shoulder pads? What artists were you listening to? Chances are there was plenty of hair metal and catchy pop tunes on your mixtapes.

The top five songs that year are still incredibly popular to this day, and surely you still have a few on your streaming playlists:

  1. Walk Like An EgyptianThe Bangles
  2. AloneHeart
  3. Shake You DownGregory Abbott
  4. I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)Whitney Houston
  5. Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us NowStarship

Facebook page Pop Icons posted a video mashup of the year’s most popular songs, and it’s pretty trippy to hear what 1987 was like sonically compared to today. Check it out, and share your favorite ’87 songs with us in the comments, on our Facebook & Twitter pages… and don’t forget to get your tickets to come celebrate our 30th birthday with us this summer!
