Famous people born on this day include Bill Kaulitz and Tom Kaulitz. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Cold Hearted by Paula Abdul. In UK Ride On Time by Black Box was in the top 5 hits. The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover, directed by Peter Greenaway, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while It'S Always Something by Gilda Radner was one of the best selling books.
