A top 87 out of 1987 is fitting. Didn't know who sung Ship of Fools, so now I know

I like James Reyne, INXS, U2, Midnight Oil and Crowded House, and Dave Dobbyn is okay.
Actually, I forgot to include "Unchain My Heart" by Joe Cocker. So I'll have to update the list sometime.
My faves almost never hit the chart But anyway, here are mine:

1. Neutral Collective - Noisy Ocean
2. Pulled Apart Dream - Interventions
3. Grizzly Milk Hotel - Neighborhood Part 1 (Laika)
4. Delpheo - Bad Vibrations/Black Wave
5. Local National - Crown of Joy
6. Okkervil Ros - Keep Running
7. Skream Deez - Neon Vile
8. Grizzly Milk Hotel - Neighborhood Part 2 (Power Out)
9. Of Horse - Rebellious Lies
10. LCD Burial - Window Glass
11. OFWGMT - (Antichrist Blues)
12. Knive - Ready to Begin
13. The Birds are Evil - Month of March
14. Foxhunter - Go Car, Go
15. The Gaslight Affair - Mountain Straw
16. staticshadowpuppet - Suburbia
17. Sparkle Secrets - Le Sans Année Lumière
18. Grizzly Milk Hotel - Neighborhood Part 3 (Tunnels)
19. Tyler Sweatshirt - My Body is Caged
20. Arial Pink's Soundsystem - The Lighthouse and the Well
21. Young the Small - Kettles
22. Flying Lotus - Modern Made
23. Zimbabweeds - Lennon
24. 5 Sunsets - Empty House
25. Forest Swords - Wasted Days

Ooh, nice list jinx. As I'd expect from a chart of yours, there are several TRASH!y songs which I don't know, but I do know more than I thought I would, and even better I like them. Great to see Noisy Ocean on top, my older sister loved that one, so I heard it a lot growing up, and it's always stayed with me. Interventions is one I don't actually know, at least not by title, but I may look it up. I adore the Grizzly Milk Hotel trilogy, but I think I liked Part 2 the best, still all three are amazing, and it's great to see them all get in. Other favourites include Neon Vile, Month Of March, Mountain Straw, Suburbia, Modern Made and Wasted Days. Forest Swords were another band I really liked as a kid, due to influences from my older siblings.

Also, I just have to thank you for re-introducing me to Kettles. It was one of those songs I'd always loved, and always remembered, but I never knew the title, and since it's instrumental there were no lyrics to search. But as soon as I saw it there at #21, I remembered that was it! THANK YOU!
Having lived through 1987 I can't say I remember any of those songs Hijinx, oh well.

In an attempt to determine the site members' favourite AMR/ARIA Top 100 charting songs of each year (and eventually of all time), I'd like to start calculating scores for every song from submitted lists. Simply post an ordered list of any size you like, containing only songs from the eligible songs list below. Your list can be changed at any time.

A song is only eligible for one yearly list and it is always the year in which the song debuted in the AMR/ARIA Top 100 Singles chart with the following exceptions...

- If the song debuted more than 2 years after release then the release year is chosen.
- If the song does not enter the Top 50 in its first chart run but re-enters the charts the following year and makes the Top 50 then that year is chosen.
