The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Kevin Gameiro and Dan Cole (rugby union). In that special week of May people in US were listening to (I Just) Died In Your Arms by Cutting Crew. In UK Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship was in the top 5 hits. Intervista, directed by Federico Fellini, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while Anywhere But Here by Mona Simpson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Roxie. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa or Basketball Challenge.
