It was Monday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 1, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (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 Léa Seydoux and Chris Perez. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Sussudio by Phil Collins. In UK Frankie by Sister Sledge was in the top 5 hits. Come and See, directed by Elem Klimov, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Stingray. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Racing Destruction Set or Gribbly's Day Out.
