It was Thursday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 12, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (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 Bebe and Bebé . In that special week of July people in US were listening to Step By Step by New Kids On The Block. In UK Sacrifice / Healing Hands by Elton John was in the top 5 hits. The Freshman, directed by Andrew Bergman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Men At Work by George F. Will was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wish You Were Here. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cisco Heat or Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday.
