Springsteen’s seventh studio album generated as many singles, Dancing In The Dark, Cover Me and I’m On Fire among them. The Miracle was the first Queen album to be made in the shadow of Freddie Mercury’s secret fight against AIDS, and came after a three-year hiatus the group took following the band’s legendary 1986 tour. It was originally going to be called The Invisible Men, which would have hardly been appropriate for one of the biggest bands in the world.
No argument: this is the best studio album from the definitive Motörhead line-up of Lemmy, ‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke and ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor, and whatever happened in the studio produced a towering classic. 18) Europe - The Final Countdown (1986).

The fact that Somerville only performed with Bronski Beat on this album cemented its legacy as a snapshot of proto-queer-pop power. If anyone still gets sentimental about the Lower East Side of the ’80s, a fantasy land where Madonna and Fab Five Freddy partied with the graffiti artists Futura and Keith Haring, we probably have perfect records like Tom Tom Club to blame.
