Famous people born on this day include Jeremy Freedman and William Singe. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-A-Lot. In UK Abba-esque (EP) by Erasure was in the top 5 hits. Bitter Moon, directed by Roman Polanski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1992 while Revolution From Within by Gloria Steinem was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Boomerang. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Don Doko Don 2 or Chikyū Kaihō Gun ZAS.
