The Shittiest Shit Ever Shat, Deux - Love You Down (mp3)

1987 was a critical year for music. R.E.M. released Document, and broke through the airwaves with "The One I Love," U2 released The Joshua Tree, and achieved instant stardom with "With or Without You." The Cure's Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me hit the record stores, and "Just Like Heaven" became an MTV favorite of millions of moping teens. The most important release of the year may have been the Pixies' Come On Pilgrim. The good music of 1987 laid the groundwork for the alt-90s and continues to influence important artists.

Sadly, the only singles from any of those albums to make the top 100 of the year were "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." Other than U2, the airwaves were dominated by absolute shit put out by poster-worthy pop stars that kids could do the 80-s step to.

Some of the immortal music that did make the top 100 included:

26 ONLY IN MY DREAMS, Debbie Gibson
28 THE NEXT TIME I FALL, Peter Cetera with Amy Grant
54 DON'T MEAN NOTHING, Richard Marx
56 CARRIE, Europe

...and a bunch of other crap, including that touching love ballad by Ready For The World, Love You Down (mp3), with which they proved, after their dance anthem, Oh Shiela (mp3), that they're so much more than a one-hit wonder. They're a two-hit wonder.
