Hit Rewind 80s – Week of July 23, 1988

Hello fellow 80’s Music lovers! I continue to fine-tune this weekly blog to make it something that would be interesting, nostalgic and more importantly…something that you would want to bookmark and enjoy. With that being said, I’ve come across (what I believe to be) a winning idea: Rewinding back to “The Next 40” of one week in the 80s. Rather than picking out one song from each year in the 80s, this will allow us all to get a better look into those hits that have bubbled just under the Top 40 charts, as well as some that are moving up or down the list, and throwing in a few more that made a quick visit never to return again.

This week, let’s rewind back to July 23, 1988 to visit #TheNext40 and see what is on the charts in positions 41 through 80, along with a Spotify playlist at the bottom to listen along during your upcoming work week (titles with asterisk are not found currently on Spotify):
