It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 2, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Kay Panabaker and Paul George (basketball). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor. In UK Killer by Adamski was in the top 5 hits. Far Out Man, directed by Tommy Chong, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Barbarians At The Gate by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Jeeves and Wooster. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Castle Master or Creatures.
