It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 3, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Yulianna Avdeeva and Mary Hagman. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Sussudio by Phil Collins. In UK Frankie by Sister Sledge was in the top 5 hits. Silverado, directed by Lawrence Kasdan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while A Light In The Attic by Shel Silverstein was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Stingray. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Mail Order Monsters or Highway Encounter.
