It was Saturday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on June 2, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Tyler Farrar and Max Boyer. In that special week of June people in US were listening to Let's Hear It For The Boy by Deniece Williams. In UK Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham! was in the top 5 hits. Ghostbusters, directed by Ivan Reitman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Mafia Princess by Antoinette Giancana and Thomas C. Renner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Superstar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lazy Jones or Mr. Robot and His Robot Factory.
