The Top Chart Hits of November 15th, 1987: A Look Back at the Music Scene
As we take a trip down memory lane to November 15th, 1987, we find ourselves knee-deep in the golden era of pop music. The airwaves were dominated by big hair, bigger shoulder pads, and the biggest chart hits that still make us shimmy and shake today. So, let’s dust off our Walkmans, rewind those cassette tapes, and dive into the top chart hits of that day.
First up, we have the iconic “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany. This pop anthem was the soundtrack to every teenage dream in ’87. Tiffany, the mall-touring sensation, took Tommy James and the Shondells’ 1967 hit and gave it a synth-pop makeover. The result? A number one hit that had us all singing into our hairbrushes and dreaming of being discovered in our local shopping centers.
Next on the list, we have the unforgettable “Mony Mony” by Billy Idol. This live version of the song had everyone jumping around their living rooms, shouting “Mony Mony” at the top of their lungs. Idol’s punk rock take on Tommy James and the Shondells’ (yes, them again) 1968 hit was a wild ride that left us all breathless and a little hoarse.
Then there was “Heaven is a Place on Earth” by Belinda Carlisle. This song was a pop-rock masterpiece that had us all believing in a utopia where neon leg warmers and acid-washed jeans were the height of fashion. Carlisle’s soaring vocals and the song’s uplifting lyrics made it a chart-topping hit that still gives us all the feels today.
And who could forget “Bad” by Michael Jackson? This track was a funky, edgy departure from his earlier work and showed us a grittier side of the King of Pop. With its infectious beat and Jackson’s signature dance moves, “Bad” was a hit that had us all trying (and failing) to moonwalk in our living rooms.
Last but not least, we have “I’ve Had The Time of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. This song was the cherry on top of the delicious sundae that was the “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack. With its sweeping melody and romantic lyrics, it was the perfect slow dance song. And let’s be honest, who didn’t try to recreate that iconic lift at least once?
So there you have it, folks. The top chart hits of November 15th, 1987. A time when music was on cassette tapes, MTV actually played music videos, and shoulder pads were as essential as the air we breathe. It was a simpler time, a wilder time, and most importantly, a time of unforgettable music. So, let’s raise our lighters (or cell phones) high and toast to the hits that still have us tapping our feet and singing along today. Here’s to the music of 1987, may it forever live on in our hearts, our playlists, and our karaoke nights.
