In that special week of April people in US were listening to Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) by Phil Collins. In UK The Reflex by Duran Duran was in the top 5 hits. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, directed by Steven Spielberg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The March Of Folly by Barbara W. Tuchman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Superstar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Impossible Mission or Intellectual Decathlon.
