The world's number one chart researcher, Joel Whitburn, selected the recordings for this collection. Joel is the author of the Record Research books which chronicle the artists and the records that hit Billboard's music charts. He hand picked each of the songs in this series according to chart performance and licensing availability. Sounding exactly as they did when first released, these classic recordings have been digitally remastered from original tape sources.

I've noticed in one review here that someone was complaining about what's NOT on here. See, Billboard is about sales/airplay, so if your favorite hair band or rap group didn't have one of the 10 or 20 biggest hits of that particular year, they ain't going to be on this collection. Having said that, this is pretty representative of what was big on the pop charts that year. If you're looking for hard rock or rap, this wouldn't be where you should look for it in the first place.

So many good songs on this CD, it reminds me of the 3 and half years I spent in the Navy stationed at Naval Air Base at Cecil Field, Florida. The base is no longer there the Navy moving squadrons to Jacksonville. So many good memories come back whenever I listen to the CD. It is a great addition to your music library.

I love the billboard series from the 80s! Only problem I have with the 1987, 1988, and 1989 is lack of hair bands! Groups like Bon Jovi, Poison, Cinderella, Def Leppard and so on were all a huge part of late 80s top 40 music. They set the trend and helped shape top 40 music at that time. They don't get so much as a single track on any of the CDs. Love the tracks they picked, but I think it should be a little more equal time. Same thing could be said for big rap hits like "Parents Just Don't Understand" 1988 and "Walk This Way" 1986. Just to name a few.

Well, this may not be the best among all the Billboard albums, but this one features some pretty nice songs. If you like slow music, I think track 10 is good. Track 2 has some pretty good lyrics, tracks 4 and 9 may be classics you may have been looking for for a long time. Personally, some of the songs aren't that great and they should add more songs, but this is a pretty good compilation.

These are all power songs from 1987. Each listener has his/her own favorites. My top three are: Heaven Is A Place On Earth, Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, and The Lady In Red.

I was intrigued by "Unknown Wars" because it contained chapters on wars and events that no one that I've seen has ever published anything on such as the Vietnamese War of Independence against China which lasted incredibly more than 1,000 years. I was fascinated by how the Trung Sisters brilliantly pulled off the very first Tet Offensive that took out 65 Chinese garrisons. The North Vietnamese in the Vietnam War against the Americans really just copied what they did in their wars against the Chinese and the Mongols, but no one in the American high command could see this. I also found how the story of how the Vietnamese defeated the Mongol juggernaut in the late 1200's fascinating. It just blew my mind how the Vietnamese used the currents and tides of the Bach Dang River to trap and destroy the massive fleets of the Chinese and the Mongols. The story of how the French conquered Vietnam in the 19th century also makes a great read.

The Khmer Empire was larger than the Roman Empire, but I've never read anything of the Khmer military machine and their fascinating wars and battles or the hero warrior king who rescued the empire from defeat before. This is not a boring read at all because the stories of these wars and warriors is written almost like a novel rather than just throwing out facts and dates. This is history at its best.

The deserts at the western end of the Great Wall of China killed perhaps more men than the Mongol people's north of the wall did in the many wars surrounding the world's longest fortification. Tens of thousands of Chinese men disappeared and were never to be seen again from going on patrols into the deserts where sand storms often disoriented and swallowed whole columns of men and horses. It is no less than an epic story.
