Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Caleb Folbigg and Ricky Pinheiro. In that special week of February people in US were listening to When I'm With You by Sheriff. In UK Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart by Marc Almond featuring Gene Pitney was in the top 5 hits. Tap, directed by Nick Castle, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while Parting The Waters by Taylor Branch was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Bottom Line. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ghost Lion or Dragons of Flame.
