On March 25, 1983 there was a television special celebrating the 25th anniversary of Motown. It brought together many of the Motown stars singing some of their biggest hits and showcased the first time Michael Jackson "moonwalked", not to mention Diana Ross and the other supremes in a shoving match deleted from the taped show.

And then on March 25, 2001 - Along came Bjork attending the Oscars - The swan made such an impression that few remember that her nominated "Best Song" was from her musical "Dancer In The Dark".
