(KFVS) -

Let's turn back the hands of time and check out what was happening 28 years ago.

Just like this year, there was a presidential race underway. Vice President George H. W. Bush was winning the Republican nomination while Democrats were voting for former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis.

On TV, people were watching The Cosby Show, Roseanne and a spinoff from the Cosby Show, A Different World.

At the movies, people were buying tickets to Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming to America.

And these were the songs at the top of the music charts this week in 1988.

Billboard Magazine has Sheriff at number five with the power ballad When I'm With You.

Bobby Brown was at number four with My Prerogative.

Def Leppard's Hysteria album was still spawning singles. Armageddon It was at number three and was the sixth single from that album.

At number two was a song that got heavy play on MTV, Taylor Dayne with Don't Rush Me.

And at number one was Two Hearts by Phil Collins. It was from the soundtrack to the British movie Buster, which starred Collins as petty criminal in 1960's London.
