Music in 1987

By Patrick Mondout

Three of the biggest acts of the decade had the best albums of their careers in 1987: First there were the Irish rockers U2 with their Grammy winning The Joshua Tree, then there was Prince with his sprawling masterpiece Sign of the Times, and finally there was the then-heterosexual (or so he know claims) George Michael with Faith. One of the best debut albums from an artist in the Awesome80s - or any other decade for that matter - came in the form of Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby. Other commercial successes included Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel of Love, INXS's Kick, Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, and Michael Jackson's followup to 1982's Thriller, Bad.
