It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 1, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Jodi Gordon and David Ousted. In that special week of February people in US were listening to I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner. In UK I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner was in the top 5 hits. Fuk sing go jiu, directed by Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Moses The Kitten by James Herriot was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Eidolon or Jason's Gem.
