It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 8, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Liza Pastor and Jeremy Davis. In that special week of February people in US were listening to I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner. In UK I Know Him So Well by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson was in the top 5 hits. Brazil, directed by Terry Gilliam, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Loving Each Other by Leo Buscaglia was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dread Dragon Droom or Jet.
