It was Monday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 13, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Iwan Rheon and Jaroslav Halák. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Don't You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Fletch, directed by Michael Ritchie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Hold The Dream by Barbara Taylor Bradford was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Rats or Gunfright.
