1987 - what a year for music! The Smiths, The Cure, R.E.M. and Depeche Mode were pumping out the alternative hits, Mel & Kim, Rick Astley, Whitney Houston and Madonna were keeping the pop side of things all present and correct and there were classic albums from INXS, Fleetwood Mac, Prince, U2 and Guns N'Roses.
