Music in 1989

By Patrick Mondout

This was the year Milli Vanilli burst onto the scene, sold six million albums and won a Grammy only to have it revoked. It was also the year Tom Petty made what some observers have called his last great album. Janet Jackson finally followed up 1986's Control with an even bigger album and Madonna created her strongest and most mature album. But it was guitar-slinging chick who impressed us the most: Bonnie Raitt's Nick of Time was the surprise hit of the year and took home Grammys too.

Here are some albums you may have been listening to in 1989 (we'll have many more soon!):
