In UK Mercy by Duffy was in the top 5 hits. The Voyeur, directed by Tinto Brass, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Los simuladores. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Armored Core: For Answer or Buzz!: The Pop Quiz.
