I will always remember Tears for Fears, for their 1982 hit 'Mad World' which went to number 3 in the UK Chart.
I've sneaked 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World' in here too, I know it didn't chart in 1982, it was later in 1986, I believe, but its a great song, and I thought, well, while I'm on the subject. It was used to promote Sports Aid, an event ran to raise money for people in famine stricken Africa.
The news in 1982 was dominated by the war in the Falklands, unemployment had topped three million, and Princess Grace of Monaco was killed in a car crash. A few of the headlines I remember.
'Sorry' starring Ronnie Corbett was on the BBC, Corbett played Timothy, the forty something librarian who lived at home with his domineering mum, and henpecked dad. I managed to find a clip...
And this is what you might have been eating for breakfast way back then, and even now?
Those were the days. What can you remember about 1982?
