Billboard By The Year: 1988
About Billboard By The Year: 1988
Slap on your leg warmers, grab your Walkman, and rollerblade on down to Feinstein’s/54 Below for a totally radical look back at the greatest songs that made the Billboard charts in the awesome year of 1988.
While Bush and Dukakis duked it out for the White House, and Dustin Hoffman was definitely, definitely going to win the Oscar, boomboxes were blasting the sounds of George Michael, Guns N’Roses, Whitney Houston, and Poison.
For one night only, Feinstein’s/54 Below is going back thirty years to celebrate the music and legends who gave the world one of the most exciting years in music and solidified their place on the Billboard Charts.
Audiences will jam out to “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Faith,” “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn,” “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” and “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
