Time to roll with the 1987 Albums campaign! Another interesting year which was still sort of a crossover year in which some music styles from the first half of the decade started to transform into new genres raising new musical opportunities and opening stages for new kids.
This year was also a quite an innovative one, MTV Europe was launched, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" is the first single being released on CD and the cassette tape was becoming more and more popular.
As for the synthpop, Ersaure and Pet Shop Boys were still keeping the mainstream afloat with it as were the the pop hits form the emerging Stock Atiken Watermen pop factory. Rick Astley's single "Never Gonna Give You up", became the best selling single of the year.
As for the other music tendencies, House music was growing slowly and taking over the danclefloors. On the different side indie pop/rock was in bloom giving more diverse and alternative forms.
Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel were honored the Brit Awards for best male and female.
