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 Alex Morgan and Dev (singer). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Baby Don't Forget My Number by Milli Vanilli. In UK Back To Life (However Do You Want Me) by Soul II Soul was in the top 5 hits. Lethal Weapon 2, directed by Richard Donner, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while Stranger In Savannah by Eugenia Price was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Split Ends. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle/Roger Rabbit/Mickey Mouse or The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
