The Top Chart Hits on October 29th, 1986: A Look Back at the Music Scene

Well, well, well, if it isn’t October 29th, 1986! A day that will forever be etched in the annals of music history. Why, you ask? Because it was a day when the music charts were ablaze with some of the most iconic tunes that still make us tap our feet and bob our heads. So, let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the top chart hits of this day, 35 years ago.

First up, we have the one and only Madonna, the queen of pop herself, reigning supreme with her hit single “True Blue.” Ah, the sweet sound of synthesized beats and Madonna’s distinctive voice, a combination that was nothing short of music to our ears. The song was a chartbuster, and why wouldn’t it be? It was Madonna at her finest, crooning about true love and all its trappings.

Next in line was the ever-charismatic Billy Joel with his hit “A Matter of Trust.” Now, this was a song that made you want to grab a hairbrush, stand in front of the mirror, and belt out the lyrics at the top of your lungs. Billy Joel, with his piano prowess and lyrical genius, gave us a song that was both catchy and profound.

Then, we had the British rock band Genesis with their chart-topping hit “Invisible Touch.” This song was a perfect blend of rock and pop, with Phil Collins’ distinctive voice adding an extra layer of charm. The song was so popular that it was practically inescapable. You’d hear it in the grocery store, on the radio in your car, and even in your dreams.

And who could forget the heartthrob of the 80s, Huey Lewis, and his band The News? Their song “Hip to be Square” was a cultural phenomenon. It was a song that celebrated the joy of being uncool, and boy, did it resonate with the masses. It was like Huey Lewis was saying, “Hey, it’s okay to be a nerd. In fact, it’s hip!” And we all nodded in agreement while dancing to the catchy tune.

Last but not least, we had the legendary Bon Jovi with their anthem “You Give Love a Bad Name.” This song was a rock masterpiece, with its powerful guitar riffs and Jon Bon Jovi’s raspy vocals. It was the kind of song that made you want to don a leather jacket, jump on a motorcycle, and ride off into the sunset.

So, there you have it, folks. The top chart hits on October 29th, 1986. It was a day when the music scene was vibrant, diverse, and downright exciting.
