It was Friday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on November 9, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Delta Goodrem and French Montana. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run) by Billy Ocean. In UK I Feel For You by Chaka Khan was in the top 5 hits. Night of the Comet, directed by Thom Eberhardt, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Superior Women by Alice Adams was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Pogo 1104. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 4 Nin Uchi Mahjong or Beaky and the Egg Snatchers.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
