1987 had some massive hits!

What Were The Top 10 Songs in Australia 30 Years Ago?

1987 was a HUGE year in music. Our fave Rock & Roll songs shared the charts with the Electro-Pop sound that defined the late 80s. Some of the most flogged songs on our airwaves turn 30 this year and we thought we'd celebrate by looking back on the Top 10 hits from the year that was - 1987!

You may think of Bon Jovi's iconic track "Livin' On A Prayer", perhaps Michael Jackson's ground-breaking hit "Bad", or maybe Midnight Oil's "Beds Are Burning" was the soundtrack to 1987 for you - yet none of these tracks actually made it into the End of Year Top 10 Hits!

So let's rewind back to 1987 when Spielberg believed that today we'd be jetting around on Hover boards sporting some power-lacing sneakers - to see which top charting singles have stood the test of time!

So... Feel old yet?
