In that special week of March people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. A Girl Like Her, directed by Amy S. Weber, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Being Mortal by Atul Gawande was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Returned.
