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 Chelsy Davy and Brian Hoyer. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Oh Sheila by Ready For The World. In UK The Power Of Love by Jennifer Rush was in the top 5 hits. Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except, directed by Josh Becker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Dancing In The Light by Shirley MacLaine was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Equalizer. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Great American Cross-Country Road Race or Lode Runner's Rescue.
