We'll breakdown 1987, but you can relive all the Hot 100's number one hits year by year:

It's almost hard to believe so many hits made their mark over the same 12 months, but the list of Billboard No. 1 tracks from 1987 is a memorable one.

Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," George Michael's "Faith," Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer," Madonna's "Who's That Girl," and many other future classics all snagged the top spot on Billboard's Top 100 that year. It also marks the first year U2 took No. 1, both with "With Or Without You" in May and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" in August.

So it shouldn't be too hard on your ears to follow along below, as we reflect on all 30 tracks that took the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top 100 in 1987.
