Sunday April 15, 1984

US date format: 4/15/1984, UK date format: 15/4/1984

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 15, 1984). 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 Annie Costner and Cam Janssen. 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. Dangerous Moves, directed by Richard Dembo, 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 Bomb Jack or Fantasia Diamond.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
