Take me back to March 14, 1983

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

It is Monday, March 14, 1983. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

Spring is creeping in, and the evenings are starting to get brighter. St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. In America, the song "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson is at the top of the singles charts, while "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" by Bonnie Tyler is the number-one song in the UK.

Ronald Reagan is the President of the United States, and the movie Tootsie is at the top of the box office. Margaret Thatcher is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In fashion, women are wearing jelly shoes, turtleneck sweaters, loose high-waist pants, crop tops, and puffer jackets lined with fur. Meanwhile, men have been ditching the disco look of the 1970s in favor of athletic clothing such as tracksuits and sports jerseys. The "preppy" look has also been making a comeback.

Because it's 1983, the radio stations are being dominated by artists such as Culture Club, Michael Jackson, Irene Cara, David Bowie and The Police. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Jobriath, Marvin Gaye, Andy Kaufman, and Truman Capote would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Happy Days", "Three's Company", "'Allo 'Allo!", and "The A-Team".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Space Invaders", "Asteroids", "Pac-Man", and "Missile Command". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Captain Kangaroo", "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood", "Postman Pat", and "Fraggle Rock". Popular toys at the moment include Speak & Spell, Strawberry Shortcake dolls, Masters of the Universe (figures), and the Commodore 64.
