AMERICAN TOP 40- THE 80’S- WEEK OF DECEMBER 5, 1987

Heaven on Earth (Belinda Carlisle album) - Wikipedia

American Top 40- The 70’s- Week of December 5, 1987. A very good week- a few clunkers but overall I am surprised at how many good songs were in the Top 40 at this point. While I will go with The Boss’s “Brilliant Disguise” will get my nod as the best single in this 40- the one I enjoyed hearing again the most is one I had forgotten about and hadn’t heard in years- “I Don’t Mind At All” by Bourgeois Tagg.
