The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Kris Humphries and Crystal Reed. In that special week of February people in US were listening to I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner. In UK I Know Him So Well by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson was in the top 5 hits. Brazil, directed by Terry Gilliam, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Moscow Rules by Robert Moss was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Flashgal or Commando.
