The Artist, directed by Michel Hazanavicius, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while She Walks In Beauty by Caroline Kennedy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Xanadu. If you liked videogames you were probably playing ABBA: You Can Dance or Avernum: Escape from the Pit.
