Um... in 1987, I'm sure I was listening to recordings of fairy tales for children 😁 We had them on vinyl.

But some of my all-time favourites from the 80s were hits in 1987:


 
First time I've posted on this thread, and my memories of the Doors (despite being a sound from long ago when I was a different person), drew me. I only listened to the first 10 songs, but it was enough for now. Still great music, evoking a different era and a different me. I'm no longer there, but I can still appreciate it from a distance. It is like a thundercloud in the distance, shot through with lightning. I was just in that kind of mood. "Riders on the Storm" is always my favorite.


I might do more from the 27 Club of that era, and others (now that I've broken the ice here). I also spent time with Janis Joplin after dallying with Jim Morrison et al. So, she'll probably be next.
