Thursday March 01, 1990

US date format: 3/1/1990, UK date format: 1/3/1990

It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 1, 1990). The US president was George H. W. 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 Eva Daeleman and Krystle Dsouza. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Escapade by Janet Jackson. In UK Dub Be Good To Me by Beats International featuring Lindy Layton was in the top 5 hits. Coupe de Ville, directed by Joe Roth, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while What I Saw At The Revolution by Peggy Noonan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Aerial Assault or Elvira: Mistress of the Dark.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
