Terence Trent D’Arby, Gloria Estefan + Aerosmith top the ’80s on 8 Big 40 Countdown: May 9th, 1988

May 12, 2014

Repost This

In mid-May of 1988, the smooth-singing, ultra-braided Terence Trent D’Arby was inviting cute girls everywhere to cast a coin into his “Wishing Well,” while Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine professed that they’d do “Anything For You.”

Meanwhile, Aerosmith felt pretty lovey-dovey themselves on Angel. Whitney Houston wondered Where Do Broken Hearts Go? (Maybe into D’Arby’s Wishing Well? Ah, never mind.) And Natalie Cole was ready to drive off in her Pink Cadillac.
