Sunday April 08, 1990

US date format: 4/8/1990, UK date format: 8/4/1990

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 8, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Jonghyun and Freddie (singer). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Love Will Lead You Back by Taylor Dayne. In UK Vogue by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. Rear Window, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Head First by Norman Cousins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gossip. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 4D Sports Tennis or Test Drive III: The Passion.
