This Day in History

On January 27, 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. What does this have to do with the ’80s? Well, in the mid-1980s, Mozart had a little resurgence in pop culture.

First of all, the movie Amadeus was released in 1984. It would go on to dominate the Academy Awards, winning 8 categories including Best Actor (F. Murray Abraham), Best Picture, and Best Director (Miloš Forman).

And who can forget Falco’s 1985 smash hit “Rock Me Amadeus”? Whenever I hear the words of Wolfgang, Amadeus, or Mozart, the first thing that pops in my mind is:

“Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, oh oh oh Amadeus”

Anybody else have an earworm now? Your welcome! Here is the #1 smash hit:

Mozart died in 1791 at the young age of 35. But his legacy lives on, and we appreciated it in the ’80s.

Even though I’m in love

On This Day: January 23, 1983 – The A-Team Pilot is Aired

31 years ago today, the pilot for The A-Team, one of the most iconic television shows of the ’80s, aired on NBC. The episode – “Mexican Slayride” introduced us to of Col. John “Hannibal” Smith, Lt. Templeton “The Faceman” Peck (“Face”), Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus, and Capt. H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock. Most of us remember Face being played by Dirk Benedict. But, in the pilot the role was played by Tim Dunigan.

The first regular episode aired the following week, January 30, 1983, after Super Bowl XVII (where the Washington Redskins defeated the Miami Dolphins 27-17).

The A-Team would go on to air 98 episodes. The last episode was aired on March 8, 1987. Here is the theme song we all know and love:
