In that special week of April people in US were listening to Footloose by Kenny Loggins. In UK Hello by Lionel Richie was in the top 5 hits. Iceman, directed by Fred Schepisi, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Mafia Princess by Antoinette Giancana and Thomas C. Renner was one of the best selling books.
