Start        Birth Years        Birthstars        Constellations

It was a year in which a star with the courage, charisma, and credentials to make a meaningful stand against the brutal empire of its time finally achieved a position of real power, only to find not one ally prepared to rally to its noble but ultimately quixotic cause. As Bono and the boys rushed headlong into the popstrological firmament of 1987 without regard for the formidable lineup of Reaganrockers arrayed before them (viz. Starship and Huey Lewis and the News) Goliath fell to his knees, and everything was in place to finish the giant off, if only someone with the same ambition as U2 could step in to deliver the coup de grāce. That someone, however, was not going to be Tiffany, Kim Wilde or Belinda Carlisle. One hopes that the children of 1987 never find themselves brutally subjugated by a regime that is any more repressive than your average nuclear family or dead-end workplace. For try though a few of them may, it is unlikely that the children of the U2 generation will have what it takes to bring their subjugation to an end.
