Famous people born on this day include Dominic Sherwood and Jermaine Kearse. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul. In UK Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor was in the top 5 hits. Nightbreed, directed by Clive Barker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Counterattack by W. E. B. Griffin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Challenge of the Dragon or Dragon Knight II.
