The year of 1984

Happy Birthday Cake Topper PopTopHello Music Psychos, how are you?

Thank you so much to everyone that wished me a happy birthday. It is a pleasure to know that amazing people like you care enough to say it!

Since midnight I’ve been receiving messages with the warmest of words. Yes - I am now in the homestretch of being a twenty something. I know I don't look like it at all. (I still get carded anywhere I go. Yesterday when I went to pick up some red wine, I was called "Honey" by a 19 year old cashier and had my ID checked.

Anyways, to celebrate my birthday for myself, I decided to check out the top music and movies from the best year – 1984.There is even a book called "1984" by George Orwell (according to his book, 1984 wasn't the best year) Considering the fact that most of my best friends were born in the year, here is some fun facts of 1984!

I can't believe that a song like “Like a Virgin" by Madonna and " Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper is actually from the year that I was born. My favourite song from the list is "I just Called to say I love you" By Stevie Wonder!.. And you can't forget the Ghostbusters' theme song, eh?  What about your favourite?

This list actually blew my mind! We had such good movies released in that year! Ghost Busters, eh? Bill Murray is that old!!

So a day before my birthday, October 5th, STS- 41-G, Mar Garneau Became the very first Canadian in space. According to Wikipedia 1984
Anyhow, It is very interesting to know what actually happened in the year that I was born. I couldn't find anything in the North American history to see if there was a significant event on the day that I was born, Oct 6th 1984, well I guess I can put my name there right?
