11. Doogie Howser, M.D.
A kid so smart he aced his way through college and medical school before he could drive? Get out of here!
But that was the premise of Doogie Howser, M.D., which made a star out of Neil Patrick Harris.
The series only aired for four seasons on ABC but its impact on pop culture left an indelible mark.
12. New Kids on the Block’s Hangin’ Tough
Whether you loved ’em or ‘hated ’em in the late ’80s and early ’90s, New Kids on the Block were the “it” boy band of a certain generation.
This year their sophomore album, which really put them on the pop music map, Hangin’ Tough celebrates 30 years.
NKOTB is commemorating its release with a special reissue for fans who continue to have “The Right Stuff.”
13. Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings”
Some might argue that there’s no greater power ballad than “Wind Beneath My Wings,” the Bette Midler hit that appeared in the tear-inducing film Beaches.
But Midler was actually the third singer to record the song.
It was initially recorded by Lou Rawls in 1983, as well as country singer Gary Morris that same year.
However, Midler is the artist most associated with “Wind Beneath My Wings” and the only singer to send it straight to No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
