Famous people born on this day include Xin Wang (actress) and Quade Cooper. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car by Billy Ocean. In UK Heart by Pet Shop Boys was in the top 5 hits. Grave of the Fireflies, directed by Isao Takahata, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1988 while Battle Cry Of Freedom by James M. McPherson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Der Geisterwald oder Des Raben Rache. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chelnov or Caveman Ugh-Lympics.
