This week on Triple M we're counting down the best songs of the 80s. Yes, it's the Flock Of 80s Countdown! 

1987 was the greatest year from the 80s. We're sorry to any fans of 1986, 1984 or 1989. And 1981 supporters... what can we say? Good try, but your boys just aren't a patch on the 7. Want proof? We provided it today on Triple M with the best songs from the year that saw the first television appearance for a weird dysfunctional family from America called The Simpsons. In the words of George Bush Senior "Let's all be a bit more like The Waltons and bit less like The Simpsons" and in the even-more-suitable words of Bart Simpson "Eat my shorts". 

Anyway, here's the best songs from 1987 as voted by Triple M Club members:
