You may have read how "Botham's Ashes" was the series that converted me from being a casual cricket fan into a cricket obsessive - but, to be honest, for me it is the summer of 1985 for which I have the fondest memories.
In lots of ways 1985 was my favorite year. In the charts we had the Water boys' "Whole of the Moon", "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News and "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves.
At the cinema, it was the summer when Michael J Fox reigned with "Back to the Future" and "Teen Wolf".The Ashes Logo
