First off, let’s talk about the number one song on the charts that day. It was none other than “The Next Time I Fall” by Peter Cetera and Amy Grant. Now, if you’re not familiar with this tune, let me paint a picture for you. Imagine a power ballad so powerful, it could knock the shoulder pads right off your neon windbreaker. That’s “The Next Time I Fall.” It’s a song about love and second chances, and it’s delivered with such earnestness that you can’t help but feel a little bit moved.

But let’s not stop there. Oh no, the music scene of November 30th, 1986, had much more to offer. Coming in at number two on the charts was “Hip to Be Square” by Huey Lewis and the News. Now, if you’re thinking, “Wait, wasn’t that song in ‘American Psycho’?” you’d be correct. But before it was an ironic anthem for a fictional serial killer, it was a bona fide hit. With its catchy chorus and upbeat tempo, it’s no wonder this song climbed the charts. Plus, it gave us all permission to embrace our inner nerd. And for that, we thank you, Huey Lewis.

Now, let’s take a moment to remember the number three song of the day, “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi. This song is a classic, and it’s easy to see why. With its hard-hitting lyrics and Jon Bon Jovi’s signature rasp, it’s a rock anthem that still gets the crowd going today. And let’s not forget that epic music video. Who among us hasn’t dreamed of rocking out on stage with a band, complete with pyrotechnics and a screaming crowd? Just me? Alright, moving on.

Rounding out the top five were “Human” by The Human League and “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On” by Robert Palmer. The former is a synth-pop ballad that’s as catchy as it is emotionally charged, while the latter is a funky dance track that’s sure to get your feet moving. Both songs are quintessential 80s, and they perfectly encapsulate the eclectic mix of music that was popular at the time.
