It was Tuesday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 5, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Trujillo (Peru) and Hillary Fisher. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Can't Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon. In UK You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) by Dead Or Alive was in the top 5 hits. Sylvester, directed by Tim Hunter, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Day the Universe Changed. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lot Lot or Jason's Gem.
