It was Sunday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 12, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Lika Roman and Johann Bihr. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Crazy For You by Madonna. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Ran, directed by Akira Kurosawa, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Class by Erich Segal was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Don't Buy This or Rags to Riches.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
