It was Wednesday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 1, 1986). 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 Jurnee Smollett and Natalia Rybicka. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Stuck With You by Huey Lewis & The News. In UK Don't Leave Me This Way by The Communards was in the top 5 hits. The Seventh Curse, directed by Ngai Choi Lam, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1986 while Regrets Only by Sally Quinn was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Janosch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Alex Kidd in Miracle World or Fantasy Zone.
