It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 4, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include David Marsais and Garry Sandhu. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Footloose by Kenny Loggins. In UK Hello by Lionel Richie was in the top 5 hits. Iceman, directed by Fred Schepisi, 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 Auf einem langen Weg. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Archon II: Adept or Crypt of Medea.
