Friday August 14, 1987

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 14, 1987). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Sinem Kobal and Pensacola (Florida). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2. In UK La Bamba by Los Lobos was in the top 5 hits. Boyfriends and Girlfriends, directed by Éric Rohmer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while Patriot Games by Tom Clancy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching G-Force: Guardians of Space. If you liked videogames you were probably playing After Burner II or Halls of Montezuma A Battle History of the U.S. Marine Corps.
