Famous people born on this day include Yuri (South Korean singer) and Gregory Tyree Boyce. In that special week of December people in US were listening to We Didn't Start The Fire by Billy Joel. In UK You Got It (The Right Stuff) by New Kids On The Block was in the top 5 hits. Glory, directed by Edward Zwick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while Head First by Norman Cousins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Sweet Life.
