It was Thursday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 22, 1982). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Kaká and Cassidy Freeman. In that special week of April people in US were listening to I Love Rock 'N Roll by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. In UK My Camera Never Lies by Bucks Fizz was in the top 5 hits. Big Meat Eater, directed by Chris Windsor, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1982 while How To Make Love To A Man by Alexandra Penney was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Los gozos y las sombras. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Birdie King or Fort Apocalypse.
