It was Friday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 13, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Julia Stone and Anders Lindegaard. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Footloose by Kenny Loggins. In UK Hello by Lionel Richie was in the top 5 hits. Going Back, directed by Ron Teachworth, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Auf einem langen Weg. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battle Through Time or Gertrude's Secrets.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
