This week in music: 1987

(KFVS) -

Let's drop a quarter in our jukebox of memories and bring back the music of 1987.

Here are the songs topping the Billboard charts this week 28 years ago.

At number five was "U Got the Look." It was performed by Prince but due to a conflict with record executives he legally changed his name to a symbol and was simply referred to as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince.

Checking in at number four was the English girl group Bananarama with "I Hear a Rumour." That song was also featured in the movie "Disorderlies."

The number three spot was held down by the Swedish group Europe with their hit "Carrie."

In the runner-up spot was Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam with "Lost in Emotion."

At number one a song known for its steamy video featuring actress Tawny Kitaen dancing erotically on the hoods of Jaguar cars. Who can forget Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again."
