1987- The Singles - Submission

This fall we will continue with our 30 year anniversary of 1987 with the selection of Best single releases. As mentioned, an interesting year which was still sort of a crossover year in which some music styles from the first half of the decade started to transform into new genres raising new musical opportunities and opening stages for new kids. The European market was mostly dominated by SAW releases while in the USA it was mostly Madonna, Whitney Houston, U2 who were holding top positions on the charts for several weeks.
Along the commercial level, the creativity was also in bloom in all variety of sounds from Jangle Pop all the way to new trends in electronic music.

 At this stage, we would once again like to invite you top submit your Top 15 list. In order to make it easier for you, we have added around 100 songs that fit the context of of what we post on our blog. There are of course others and that can be included, but they should be official released.
 D/L September 30th.
