It was Saturday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 12, 1981). 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 Jennifer Hudson and Hosea Chanchez. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Endless Love by Diana Ross. In UK Tainted Love by Soft Cell was in the top 5 hits. Prem Geet, directed by Sudesh Issar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1981 while Theory Z by William G. Ouchi was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Willo the Wisp. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Kick or Make Trax.
