It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 6, 1987). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Magalie Vaé and Sasha Cane. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Walk Like An Egyptian by Bangles. In UK Reet Petite by Jackie Wilson was in the top 5 hits. The Stepfather, directed by Joseph Ruben, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while Patriot Games by Tom Clanc was one of the best selling books.
