In that special week of June people in US were listening to Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper. In UK Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham! was in the top 5 hits. Ghostbusters, directed by Ivan Reitman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while First Lady From Plains by Rosalynn Carter was one of the best selling books.
