Since it’s been 25 years since this particular time, we figured we’d give a shout-out to ten of the most timeless pieces of music that were hits within those 365 days. Join us for the anniversary, won’t you?

1. “Bust a Move” by Young M.C. — Bust it.

2. “Right Here Waiting” by Richard Marx — Forever breaking our hearts.

3. “Like a Prayer” by Madonna — Or really anything from Madonna’s Like A Prayer album.

4. “If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher — Well, more like If I could turn back tah-ohmmm.

5. “Love Shack” by The B-52’s — It’s actually more surprising that this song isn’t older than 25. Can you believe how much we liked this style of music?

6. “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson — Technically, the track was released as a single in October of 1988, but it continued to kill it on the charts throughout 1989.

7. “Baby, I Love Your Way”/”Freebird” by Will To Power — Another late ’88 (November) track, but necessary.

8. “My Prerogative” by Bobby Brown — We can thank Britney Spears for its resurgence 10 years ago.

9. “I’ll Be There for You” by Bon Jovi — Before the Friends version took over the title.

10. “She Drives Me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals — Couldn’t remember the band’s name if our lives depended on it, but there’s no forgetting the tune.
