Wednesday August 7, 1985

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 7, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Sophie Ward (model) and Loïc Perrin. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Shout by Tears For Fears. In UK Into The Groove by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. My Beautiful Laundrette, directed by Stephen Frears, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Breaking With Moscow by Arkady N. Shevchenko was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Stingray. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Kong Strikes Back! or Dragonfire II: The Dungeonmaster's Assistant.
