In that special week of August people in US were listening to Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor. In UK Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners With The Emerald Express was in the top 5 hits. Querelle, directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1982 while Cinnamon Skin by John D. MacDonald was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Noel Edmonds Late Late Breakfast Show. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Mars Cars or River Rescue.
