It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 7, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Ramon (Nouvelle Star) and Stratos Perperoglou. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.. In UK Careless Whisper by George Michael was in the top 5 hits. Sam's Son, directed by Michael Landon, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while First Among Equals by Jeffrey Archer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vereda Tropical. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Donald Duck's Playground or Gremlins.
