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 Brittanya O'Campo and Ana Cristina. In that special week of June people in US were listening to Everything She Wants (Remix) by Wham!. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Secret Admirer, directed by David Greenwalt, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Inside, Outside by Herman Wouk was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Nine Princes in Amber or Benny Hill's Madcap Chase.
