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 Laura Marling and Davi Santos. In that special week of February people in US were listening to How Am I Supposed To Live Without You by Michael Bolton. In UK Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor was in the top 5 hits. Stanley & Iris, directed by Martin Ritt, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while The Cuckoo'S Egg by Clifford Stoll was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bakushō! Star Monomane Shitennō or Cyber-Lip.
