Sacrilege! You left out the VERY BEST song of 1987!! T'Pau "Heart and Soul". How could you?

I'm sorry that your favorite song of the year was not included. I do try to feature a large and diverse list of songs for each year, but obviously a few worthy tunes - like T'Pau's - are, unfortunately, overlooked. Thanks for your comment, which I will consider as a write-in vote for T'Pau.
